America, America !
What's more traditional than fireworks on the Fourth of July!
It's early yet today:
"This doesn't happen here" said an uninformed source.
It's July (7) 11. Seems like a good day to emphasize the benefits of a well regulated militia. Any reason will do.
"We also have removed the sound of children screaming as the gunman enters the classroom. We consider this too graphic.”
... and not just a billion dollars, also a billion Thoughts and Prayers!
How can anyone place the blame of gun violence upon an inanimate object? Our problem is the growing rate of mental illness in the United States. We need to face this problem and work to resolve it should we truly desire to end gun violence.
More attention being paid to mental illness would help but it's wrong to blame the mentally ill or even the guns, The blame lies squarely on gun manufacturers who have been glorifying, promoting these weapons all over the world for ages. Hey ... we're dumping these killing machines everywhere as fast as possible, don't know who gets them, so you better arm yourself with ever increasing fire power Justin Case! We give a macho man, or a weak confused nutcase ... most are men ... a way to even the score with rapid fire!
If those lethal tools weren't around so much the crazies wouldn't have access to them so much either.
but that's s another world ...
Apparently, your bias is impeding your logic. Your next arguenent will be to outlaw knives using the same reasoning.
Yeah ... that's one of the inane arguments the pro gun lobby uses ... or what about cars killing all those people. Knifes do a lot less damage than a machine gun, they are not meant to kill people in normal use ... excepting switch blades maybe and they're usually illegal already, strangely more so than MR-15s which are meant to kill people, or a herd of wild boars a lot of people seem to be afraid of for some reason?
