Is it really because the Government,..those in Power,..care so much about you,..or your Children?
Then what about all the things which are killing our Children much much more often than maniacs,...MAD People,....with guns?
And in any case,..banning Guns won't stop mad People,..CRAZY People from murdering Children.
Ask yourself this. Even if you had a house full of guns and ammunition, would you then murder a close relative, shoot your way into a nearby primary school and massacre as many children as you could?
Of course you wouldn’t.
You would have to be mad to do such a thing, and mad in a rather special way.
And if you were mad in that way, and had no gun, you might use other weapons. There are recent instances in various parts of the world of what appear to be attempted mass murder by car, or by knife.
Take what happened just over a week ago in Chenpeng village school, Henan province, in China. Min Yongjun stabbed an elderly woman before hurting 22 children (many very badly) with a kitchen knife.
So shall we ban kitchen knives? Or cars? Actually, most mass attacks in China – which like almost all despotism's has very tight gun laws – are done with either knives or explosives. The important thing is that these attacks still happen even with gun laws.
And THAT,..is my point.
I am from the U.K. so feel free to tell me to mind my own business, but before you do, please pay me the courtesy of finishing reading my question, you might just understand why I ask it.
What I am asking you to do here is to think. Don’t be herded into the standard liberal opinion, that the Sandy Hook School tragedy is the fault of America’s allegedly crazy gun laws.
Actually, Connecticut’s gun laws are a good deal tighter than Britain’s were before 1920. British gun law before then was so relaxed it made Texas look effeminate. Did the streets of Edwardian London echo to gunfire? Were school massacres common? No.
Were guns restricted here because of crime? No, they were restricted because the panicky British government thought there might be a revolution.
And that, is a FACT.
In Switzerland, to this day, most homes contain powerful military weapons and ammunition. But gun crime is extremely rare there (unless you count suicide). Yet these massacres are a feature of modern life. They happen in countries such as Britain and Germany that already have severe gun laws.
So,...is it absolutely not possible there is another,..valid,...reason for people in power wishing to disarm the American People?
There is no other possible reason, other than to protect our Children?
Eh? Hot Summer Sidewalk
Points 1 and 2,...you are wrong on both.
Point 3,..well you may have a point, one which warrants further inquiry, a deeper debate which cannot be dealt with here however.
Fair answer nevertheless.
John obviously can't handle the question, or the facts contained within it and has resorted rather quickly it has to be said,..to silliness,...maybe he will start calling me names next.
