It's not the guns, it's the society that we live in....in Europe personal guns are illegal except for a hunting rifle...what prevents some nutcase from taking his hunting rifle into a school and start killing in Lisbon? Madrid? London?...... The culture of the society...that's what, it's not how they think....as a society, America has become violent and cold....shooting and killing is glorified in rap songs, movies, video games,tv shows, etc...
It's not the guns, it's our culture that is bad.
Isn’t people attitudes to guns a part of US culture?
What stops our nutcase’s? no lop holes in background checks because of gun shows and you can't kill 20 people as efficiently with a hunting rifle compared to an assault rifle, that’s what stops our nutcase’s year being as bad as yours.

Did they catch the guy?
Was he a Muslim?
Was it terrorism?
Why isn't the shooter even mentioned?
He/she was.
"A 15-year-old girl who performed in Barack Obama's inauguration festivities has been killed in a Chicago park as she talked with friends by a gunman who apparently was not even aiming at her."
They mention in the last part see or if you want a name wait in till he/she is arrested and judged guilty because until then we don't know who did it.

Another example of the "caring and loving" Marxist. Advocating violence against his fellow man as he bleats incessantly about "gun violence." A case study in the liberal Marxist mind set. The scary thing is, these nut jobs truly believe they're as sanctimonious as they think they are! Did you ever try to argue with a 5 year old? Same difference.

Jolly good, old chap. But. I consider it a sport to keep Marxist's in check. You just use the truth, and they'll eventually hang themselves on their own lies. Cheerio.

The scary thing is, trolling loons like you have access to computers. And yes, I'm arguing with a 5-year-old now. Not a very smart one, either...:)
