No, the shooting is because of the lack of gun laws in the US. Other countries, even the atheist ones, don't have that problem.

P.S. I have no god to lie for and have a total intolerance of liars, I do not lie. But hey, you are free to imagine whatever makes you feel good about your scrounging lifestyle.

Sweden, Norway, and Switzerland are good examples. Most of Europe regards the religious fervor in the US with something akin to amusement mixed with terror. But they have very little gun crime.

Lack of gun laws certainly encourages the use and availability of guns. Without reasonable gun laws to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the insane (background checks, for example), we get the rash of killings we see in the US today.

Strong gun laws minimise shootings but no one is going to stop the blithering idiot with a grudge and an illegally held gun.

Of course a pro gun zealot would say the statistics are BS and have no relevance to them because they are perfectly normal, law abiding gun owners and they know perfectly normal law abiding gun owners.

Or they may introduce irrelevancies like the car kills more people than the gun

I have even seen some fools saying a gun is not designed to kill or even a gun is not a weapon, it is a tool.

Yes it’s all fun until someone gets shot in the head, right?

Dumbazz.

In fact, the state religions of Norway and Sweden were only recently removed as their "state" religion, with the state religion of Switzerland being vacated (as the state religion) 30 years ago.

NEXT!

I consider the inability to admit you are wrong in the face of overwhelming proof a deformity.

E.G.(of many) House of Lords are (you insist) elected.

Obviously, your dyslexia- if I wanted to pretend to believe your narrative- hinders your ability to read and write and... it appears... to think.

Better to be acting like it than to be on the dole, and taking medication for it.

Not successfully, according to the neighbors downwind from you.

There are 275 million guns, minimally. Probably 300 million. Lack of gun laws do not encourage gun ownership.

Religion has not the remotest thing to do with gun ownership save for a minority who would not own them because of their religious beliefs.

Total cr&p. There are no "Church of Atheists" which shows up on disaster sites as a "collective" anymore than do "English Women with Mustaches" (such as ChristineM).

It doesn't mean they aren't there or not volunteering.

Only a blithering idiot would presume the owner of a gun is holding it illegally.

Why not stick to English topics that you know nothing about- like the UK Parliament.
