How is it that Americans cannot see that more guns can only bring more deaths?


This year alone, there were at least 352 mass shootings. 995 within the last 3 years. From the beginning of 2013, there were 1260 persons killed and 3606 injured. Bad begets bad. Everyone carries a gun, and anyone is likely to use it. The more it is used, the more it becomes "the norm". The shoot first and ask questions later becomes commonplace. What a frightening place to live and laugh and love in!

    You are correct Alan, and we can never eliminate any chance of gun killings. Maybe a more careful check of gun-ownership would minimize the deaths, just as control of cars, sharp tools and poisons minimize abuse of these. Thank you for joining us.

    We have trigger-happy cops in this part of the world as well, down to the nature of crime here. In London, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Bristol there are gangs as in US cities. Drugs, people-smuggling and robbery etc thrive on unemployment.

    Thank you for commenting, Kathleen Cochran. It is my fear that familiarity of guns will breed contempt of the danger they could generate for criminals and also for those innocent.

    Yeah, gun bans won't do anything, which is why Japan is a smoking crater due to all of its criminals running wild shooting people! Oh, wait...
