I disagree with the "banning" of guns. No need to take guns from people who don't deserve it.
What I do agree with is tighter regulations at a NATIONWIDE level (rather than state by state) in order to make it tougher for the nutjobs who are
about to snap any minute to get their hands on one or two or twelve with all the ammo and bells and whistles to go along side it buying the stuff on
spur of the moment at dirt cheap prices, thus making it that much easier for the crazies to lash out and strike while the iron is hot.
We have regulations here in Canada, but we can still own guns. It just makes the process of getting your hands on one a little tougher is all.
Regulations do help to weed out the unwanteds... it's certainly no miracle cure, but every little bit does help to tone down the problem.
No need for a stupid "all or nothing" game play action to take place here.
It's unfortunate that Americans are feeling stereotyped. Not all of us non-Americans view you in such a generalized manner.
But the attitude of telling the international community to "get over it" only fans the flames, and thus producing more angst resulting in ad hominem
attacks from both sides.
Like it or lump it, we all live in an international community, each and every country's actions has a direct effect on someone else's.
There's no denying of that fact.
As an example to prove the point: 911 effected the entire planet, not just the United States of America.
These are the fears of the international community when incidents happen that have the potential to effect us all in terms of policy changes. If the
US decides to go overboard and ban ALL guns... guess what will eventually trickle over to the rest of us ?
That's the way it works in a globally connected world.
