Right, cuz your little "pop guns" will be so effective against body or vehicle armour.
Although I find it difficult to believe you'd find many in the military that would act against their own people cuz the gummint ordered 'em to.

Not trying to bust your balls as I'm not from the US but I find the whole thing fascinating, in the same way as a train wreck.
The utter rejection of even the most reasonable of gun controls makes no sense to me. Every time there's a mass shooting the answer from a particluar demographic seems to be "we need more guns". Of course the other side usually wants to go too far in the other direction by wanting to go on banning sprees.

From where I can see it, it's too late to start with bans. Pandora's box has been opened and a 2nd Amendment mentality is deeply entrenched in American culture. Not to mention the NUMEROUS firearms manufacturers and fabricators in the US producing 3 million "recreational" firearms every year. Although I'm betting that number has gone up in the last 3-4 years.

ON the other side of it, after the Newton shootings someone elsewhere brought up swimming pools(and water features). When children die en masse in one location, it's a tragedy. When they die in large numbers but individually, in separate parts of the city/state/country, it's "just" news.
More kids drown in backyard swimming pools and water features every year in the US than are killed by firearms, yet I hear calls for neither the banning of all backyard pools and water features, nor anyone saying more pools and water features will solve the problem.

I mean no offense in this post. It's purely an observation from an interested and friendly outsider.

I actually feel safer in the wild vs. in the big city, where carrying concealed is a good idea.

And lawn darts and Kinder Chocolate Eggs apparently. Two more items banned in the US. One because of a very small handful of freak accidents, and the other because something "might" happen.
