The killing of nine people in an Oregon college is the 294th “mass shooting” in the US this year, according to one definition of such tragedies.
American legislators trust their citizens to carry guns, but don’t believe that they are smart enough to avoid choking on a plastic toy found inside a chocolate egg that sells so well for the very reason it contains . . . er . . . a plastic toy! That is really not at all funny.
To the rest of the civilized world, the USA is a very bad, very sick joke of a nation. Their President speaks great sense on gun law, but they choose to ignore him.
It is easier to buy a gun in a High Street store than it is to buy a chocolate egg. A friend of mine even got fined $25 for bringing an apple into the country in his suitcase.
Any crazy American citizen can own as many guns and bullets as they can afford.
The US government spends hundreds of billions on nuclear armament programmes in the name of defense, yet they are blind to the fact that all the nuclear weapons in the world will not deter any vicious terrorist attack or college shoot-up perpetrated by one of their own citizens.
Wake up America and impose gun controls!
It won’t stop attacks completely, ‘cos if some bad person wants a gun they’ll get one, but why don’t you just make it more difficult?
The State of the Nation?
My verdict: Absolutely nuts!
