    Might stop a few "heat of the moment" shootings, but so could further restrictions on knives, and vehicles.

    There is no way anyone will be able to do anything about guns so long as there are more guns than people in this country. It's a liberal pipe dream to get rid of guns, just like it's a Conservative racist pipe dream to get rid of 11,000,000 illegal immigrants. Neither is realistic and both will never happen.

    What we should do is mandate that any and all gun transactions should be subject to a background check, because that's just good sense. I don't think we should ban assault rifles or anything of the sort. If we were going to ban anything, I'd ban the handguns since those are the primary culprits of all gun deaths, be they homicides, suicides, and/or accidents. Handguns are the problem, not assault rifles. The right wing is correct in that big, scary looking guns aren't really responsible for a lot of deaths outside of these mass shootings, which are also rare. But handguns rack up the body count daily and are what should be banned or at least more strictly regulated - i.e. having fingerprint IDs on all guns manufactured moving forward, just like all cars had to be manufactured with seat belts following seat belt laws in the 1970s-80s...they put in seat belt laws, and deaths from car accidents dropped by 50% from 1980 - today. So if guns had safety mechanisms, they too would see fewer deaths. Why is that controversial?

    Well, this time the assault weapons racked up a very large kill number this time.

    The man was a madman. Without a gun, tell us how he could have wounded over four hundred and killed over fifty?

    17 people die every day in america from gun violence.

    4 people have died in the country of England in the past 4 YEARS. Australia's numbers are lower than that. What's the big difference...?
