Yes it is.

Really? That seems both very strange and stupid. However if it is as you say it would still be a huge step in the right direction.
PrimalScream91 wrote: however, even if they ban them, the ones that are already in circulation will not be removed from the system, the law cannot be retroactive. Those guns built before the ban will still be legal to own.
PrimalScream91 wrote: That being said, there needs to be more restrictions placed on who owns guns.
And how do you think that would be able to change? Since they haven't been able to learn/control the people in the last 300 years...

American history? What history shows that countries with guns have less violence and deaths than countries "without"?

PrimalScream91 wrote: Look at Switzerlands gun laws. When they outlawed firearms in DC, violence went up.
Weird, thats exactly how the media here in Sweden and probably most other countries handles it too. But still there has been over 140 school shootings in USA, and only 1 in Sweden.

American's feed of violence in the media, which proves to be a breeding ground for people like the gunman, because those sick, deranged, people know that they will be remembered for doing that. We will remember the name of the gunman but not those poor innocent children as sad as that it.

of course you have that "but you will grab a gun and kill somebody faster if you have some" issue, but i dunno...

I'm more for learning how to handle these things and make them something normal, than let them be monsters nobody has any idea of how to use them...

michael moore would love to talk with you.
