I don't think it's as simple as they need their fix
Another way, say we in the u.k. get a spate of mentally disturbed young teenagers/young men who then get in cars and run down people killing 10, 20 at a time. Would we ban cars?
What would the rest of the car owners say if there was a suggested ban? The same as any majority who play by the rules and one or two try and break them. No majority should be punished for the law breaking of the few.Lets be honest more die in the u.k. in cars than from guns but guess which one is banned
Most gun owners do use them legally and safely but in todays media everything is not only reported but sensationalized.
I'm sure there are as many gun owners angry about what this kid did as non gun owners, owning a gun doesn't mean you have an emotion bypass
I do hope they ban anything over a 9 clip capacity and they ban military type weapons to civilians but this will be a slow change and as long as we are understanding of that then I am sure change will happen for the better
Don't agree at all. For the most part a car is for getting from a to b and is not designed to cause damage. A gun's only job is to shoot things. To compare them is stupid.
I don't think all guns should be banned but all, except the rozzers, should be kept locked up at gun clubs. No one 'needs' to shoot a gun but if you like doing it go to the club.
Also, I'm no fan of the media but to class the reporting of 20 children being killed as 'sensationalized' because you like guns is bonkers.
