I’m sure that we are all horrified by the latest in a long line of massacres within schools within the USA.
I also find it incredulous the level of vitriol, whenever anyone suggests that the US gun control should be reviewed.
From my own experience, here in Birmingham in the UK, I commented on a friends Facebook status “… and still they won’t ban guns” and got a very ANGRY reply from someone who I don’t know.
I decided not to follow this conversation up as this may be a guy who, erm, actually own guns and from his demeanour I doubt if I could sit down with him to actually have a reasoned debate.
It’s worth taking a moment out of your day to read these:
