Why should anyone think of shooting rampages ? 9/11 led to the increase in airport security, and the 9/11 WTC attack was done without guns.

Of all causes of death, guns will cause the fewest deaths. More people (and kids) will die from sickness and disease, and then accidental death (mostly car crashes), and then homicide, and some of those will be caused by guns.

Most gun crime is due to the govt's failed war on drugs. Legalize street drugs, and most violence will stop.

Most kids are not killed by military style guns. Probably by handgun. Everyday, about twenty-six children will die from all causes of death (only a few will die from guns).

They love to use safety or children as excuses to destroy freedom.
