      OMG!! When will you Americans learn! Guns are the problem!!
      You have the worst gun murder rate of any first world country by a massive multiple. You have over 300 million guns in your country. Until you do something about guns these mass shootings will continue to happen every few months.

      Guns influence people more than violent games/movies ever could. The NRA knows this but they're in partner with the gun manufactures. Guns are a multi-billion dollar business and no company w More..

      You completely missed it. Guns actually used to be in more places with no background checks, but there was less of this happening. This is 100% Social decay.

    • @MrRaptur3 If the guns exist to stop a corrupted government then why do you all sit on your asses? Do something about it or they are proved right and if the guns arent used for intended purpose they may aswell be removed.

    • @schutz Because there are better ways at changing government than getting violent and playing war. Guns at the last resort. There is a reason why the "Don't tread on me" flag has a rattlesnake on.

      Personally I think it is dumb to challenge government with violence. They're better at it.

    • So...here comes a bit logic!
      Guns are in the US for "hunting" and protecting yourself from a corrupt government?! So take your stupid weapons in your hand and use them against the government that wants to take your beloved guns. If you wouldn't use them because you think something like "it is dumb to challenge government with violence", so why do you still have guns if you don't want to use them?!

      Use your f**king guns and make a rebellion or else shut up and stop crying More..

      your iq: im gonna say about 90... hows racism going? douchebag

      iq doesnt mean very much

      tests were done on remote islands... the initial average iq was around 50... but after schooling it raised dramatically over years....

      iq is generally relative to how developed a society is, not how intellectually capable a person is

      and how the fuck did someone thumb you up?? racist neanderthals

      You first state "He is not smart. He is an asian", then you state "i'm an asian person". This alone shows that your IQ is below 0.

      I loved being on the rifle team. I remember the first day we shot a can full of water with a .22 as a lesson on what even a small round can do and that you only point at what you intend to shoot. I really think that we could fix a lot of our problems with education, not regulation. Our schools are really becoming a joke. Like Chris Rock said...Disco with books.

      Right wingers everywhere agree with you.
      I have no problem with immigrants. I have a HUGE problem with ILLEGAL immigrants.
      Just as I have no problem with legal belt-fed full auto machine guns (want M2HB so badly), I have a big problem with a felon having a Jennings .25 pistol.

      Immigrants can flood here, providing they do so legally. The illegal ones should be rounded up and sent home.

  • Guns were never the problem, the problem is a society that idealizes failure and rewards ignorance. Get rid of negative societal values and instill respect and honor back into the youth, gun violence and crime rates will plummet.
