Quoting Jennybananna:" My dad is from the UK so I do truly see both sides. There is a huge gun control issue in the US and its ... [snip!] ... away something that has been legal for so long vs. being in a country where people never had that right in the first place. "
I agree with you. It's very hard, but not impossible. It's just gradual and slow.
Glad we never had that right, though. I can't even call it a right, I would hate to have it.. It would be an anarchy. We haven't had one single shooting like this since the beginning of our history (our country), hundreds and hundreds of years ago. Do we have more sane people than the U.S.A? I don't think so. I think mentalities, are different, yes, education too.. But at least for me, having the power to own a gun changes everything..
