...another school shooting, will the US change gun laws this time? (no)

That's never going to happen. The US is just a completely different country. We love our guns. Parents need to just learn to be more responsible. Besides, it's not a problem with the guns, it's a problem with humanity. There's a reason UK has the highest stab victim rate; they don't have guns. People will find a way to kill each other.

I don't think anyone is going to argue this because it always turns into an all out brawl. But the truth remains: whenever shit like that happens in the US our news is always jumping on it, shaking their heads and asking "what will it take for the US to change their gun laws?". Instead you guys always seem to bring out laws for more guns which to the outside world, you must admit, looks absolutely bananas and makes for a good headline.

I agree that "people kill people" and "people can kill people without guns" but you must admit that guns make it a heap easier

I was going to hop in here, but after the gun thread that popped up earlier I think it's all been said here. I own well over a dozen guns and am just a bit biased, anyway (I always feel the need to add that I'm not a gun nut, though).

Ah, yes. I remember you and I were two of the very few people favoring less gun control. And that's why I was hesitant to leave the first comment, but I felt it necessary. i pray it doesn't heat up as rapidly as the "do you own a gun" thread.

@Locke Cole: I highlighted "Scottish" because I live in Scotland (and I'm also a supporter -- though not a member -- of the SNP) and yes, we have our own political issues which are separate from the rest of the UK; which would be true even without devolution.

@grenworthshero: Whilst we may have some stabbings over here, unlike the United States violence is not the leading cause of death amongst young men (car accidents and suicide rate higher), so you can keep the guns, thanks.

Gunshots attract zombies. Give me a good old blunt weapon to smash their heads open.
