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?
Why not should be answered in light of the truth. It is not true that almost everyday there are mass shootings in the USA. There are indeed far too many, and the issues need to be addressed, but only in light of truth about surrounding facts.
Unfortunately it's true, take a look at https://www.massshootingtracker.org/data for the facts.
The majority listed there are unknown shooters related to gang/crime activity with drugs/alcohol being prime factors, not what most typically consider mass-shooters. However, respecting drugs/alcohol/gun laws is never on any of their the agendas.
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.
You just don't get it.
I guess not. Why is it that in Europe there are far less mass shootings? Simple, it's harder to buy fire arms.
Criminals will always get there hands on guns, but you should not encourage them to buy guns legally.
Europe is where they use gas, and explosives.
France has the strongest gun control and yet it is plagued with terrorists.
Europe has too many problems to discuss here.
Plagued with terrorists ! Are you trying to tell me there is everyday a terorist atack in France.
Anyway, the subject is mass shootings, not terrorists. And mass shootings are committed by psychopaths not terrorists in most of the cases.
Are you denying the fact that the Muslim Terrorists are not the ones we are talking about. France has more terrorist attacks than the US, and it is 1/5 the population.
Muslim Terrorists may be psychopaths, but they are also Muslims,&they are the
Brad , Im talking about mass shootings not terrorist attacks. most mass shootings aren't terrorist attacks but Lunatics in the possession of a firearm.
Then why did you reference Orlando in your ? And all the mass shootings in the world are a very small % of gun owners. But terrorist attacks no matter how small is an attack on the country, and Muslims are the most common of these terrorists.
