    At a time like this we must put aside our feelings of shock and horror. Instead, we should rejoice in the realization every American has a right to die by gunshot wound, writhing and screaming in a pool of his own blood.

    Except no one died in this shooting. Next time you might want to read the story before making ignorant comments.

    As to the point. Only about 10000 people a year die to gunshot wounds that are classified as murder. Lets do the math shall we? Over 300 million people in the US, or if you prefer about 300 million guns in private hands. Now do the math as to what percentage of people die due to illegal use of a fire arm. Then compare that to the 40000 that die each year in car accidents.

    Or blowing things up. Or running people down with his car. Or stabbing people. Or hitting people in the head with a baseball bat.

    Just to be safe, we should probably ban fertilizer, automobiles, kitchen cutlery and all sports. Thank goodness we have smart people like you to tell everyone else what to do...

    If I was in that mall, and the mall was in Florida, that guy would have been D.R.T. (Dead Right There)
