The solution is for us to decide also Skeptic, and not for foreigners to make policy in America.<quoted text>
Quoting your own quote doesn't make it more valid. Gun crime in the US is miles above any other country, the solution is the remove guns.
Its a pity the spoilt toddler that is the the US, won't let mommy reason take the toy away after they killed someone with it.
Perhaps the problem is that basic moral education was substituted with religious cr*p and that's what makes you folk so f*cking stupid when it comes to guns.
But it's not religion that makes policy either.
It was the ratification of the bill of rights in our constitution.
I suggest you read this carefully.
"In September 1789, the first Congress of the United States approved 12 amendments to the U.S. Constitution and sent them to the states for ratification. The amendments were designed to protect the basic rights of U.S. citizens, guaranteeing the freedom of speech, press, assembly, and exercise of religion; the right to fair legal procedure
and to bear arms;
and that powers not delegated to the federal government would be reserved for the states and the people."
