What better way to show your appreciation for something that's only purpose is to kill than trying to kill with it.

Personally I would have gone pheasant hunting but to each his own

Only purpose? You ever heard of gun ranges? People shoot for sport and as a hobby, you know. And not just hunting.

Longhornfan and IamRambo should be here soon with a convincing pro-gun argument on this one.

Probably to say that liberals organized the shootings to support their anti-gun arguments

England, a country that has banned guns for 15 years, has both a higher crime rate, and higher violent crime rate per capita than the United States... which has the most guns per capita in the entire World.

Apparently taking guns from UK citizens didn't stop them from robbing, raping, and killing each other... considering the UK is also ranked as the most violent country in the EU.

What does placing more restrictions on law abiding citizens have to do with criminals shooting people with guns? I think a distinction between policy and reality needs to be drawn. If the government wants to limit my ability to own a firearm, then they need to eliminate the ability of criminals to obtain firearms. In the United States, a country whom barely polices its own border, and produces more guns than any other nation (we are also the leading importer I think), the idea that placing more regulations on law abiding citizens will reduce the number of gun related crimes in any significant way, is laughable at best.



To be honest, I'm not even a gun advocate. I just don't believe these new restrictions will have a significant impact on the amount of crimes committed with guns. If someone wants to purchase/steal/obtain a gun to commit a crime, they will. Also, if the U.S. is serious about improving gun control, perhaps they should start with placing restrictions on the import/export of weapons, and by properly protecting our borders.


In the end, the United States "war on guns" would, or will, turn out exactly likes its "wear on drugs; a complete and utter failure.

So you're going to ignore the question?
