Re: Just Another Night In America...
That is just 1/5 of the deaths resulting from guns in America in 1 day compared to Britain's 35 in an entire year. You can argue that guns are banned in Chicago and this somehow proves your point on why it's bad to have gun control, but compare it to Britain's gun related deaths and that proves my point. I don't really think this story is going to cause people to change their stance on gun laws in America, considering how 20 murdered children couldn't. It actually did the exact opposite. A lot of Americans went out of their way to purchase AR-15 assault rifles and ammunition. What does that tell you about America? I live in Canada where we have gun control which means the chances of someone opening fire on me or my family is slim. I am not against the 2nd amendment, I am against regular citizens going out and buying semi-automatic assault rifles, then some of them decide to go on a massive shooting spree killing a mass amount of innocent people. I just don't get some Americans who are against any kind of gun control even if it means saving the life of innocent victims. I guarantee you that if we had ban the AR-15 some victims would still be here today. Sad story though and my condolences go out to everyone who has been affected by this.
