a yank who agrees

We don't all want to rehash the War of Independence, mate. I think polls will show that a majority of Americans support a lot more restrictions on personal firearms than we have now. Politicians either fear the National Rifle Association or they are beholden to major donations from arms manufacturers. Eventually, common sense will prevail.

Just another Brit

Why you Brits think you have the right or authority to tell Americans how to live is beyond me. You still have royalty, you don't have a constitution, and you beat each other to death of soccer games. We kicked you out of here over 200 years ago and then had to rescue you in 2 world wars. Stay on you little island and mind your own business. When you grow up and have a "written' constitution, maybe you can join the fee world.

Gun Control

Thousands of Americans have firearms and have had the right to have them for 266 years. In my humble opinion, blaming gun ownership is like blaming the food producers for people being too fat or blaming car manufacturers for vehicle deaths. I think we have to ask ourselves where are these mentally and evil possessed people coming from? What has happened to our society that these acts of malice can be perpetrated? I wish I knew the answers. Could it be that we live in a hedonistic society where if it feels okay with you, then it should be okay with me? Could it be that some years back we opened the mental institutions and put people on the streets that were not able to care for themselves? Many of them wound up being homeless or incarcerated. Could it be that we don't allow God to direct and guide us.
Pray brothers and sisters - pray.
