Orlando. Isn't it time for banning fire arms in the US ?


Almost every day there is a mass shooting in the US. A mass shooting is 4 or more people shot. (http://www.shootingtracker.com/) Australia banned guns. Result - no more mass shootings. It's so simple. Less guns on the street, less mass shootings. Isn't it time to act and ban guns ?

    I agree, I think the legislation should be more strict. I can understand that farmers want a gun, or sportsman. But I can not understand why somebody living in the city needs an automatic rifle. I think it's time to look at the laws again.

    A bombing is not a mass shooting.

    Most of the mass shootings aren't done by Muslims.

    A tighter assault rifle law will stop children shooting there parents or fellow class mates.

    Thanks for the article. I can understand hunting lisences, but to me it seems dangerous to give people in cities a license.To many people cramped up, accidents happen too easily. Restricting licenses does have an effect on mass shootings. So why not?

    True, compared with 18 years ago, but so it is in the US. Fact is, there are no more mass shootings in Australia since 18 years.

    And tell me how would you recognise a terrorist? How would you ban an American born and bread in the US?

    Most mass shooting gunman aren't terrorists but psychopaths. It would help a lot if they couldn't get their hands on a gun that easy.

    Don't compare alcohol with firearms. One bullet is deadly one beer isn't.
