    Again, something so tragic raises the issue of gun laws. This doesn't happen anywhere else in the world.

    Basically 17 people are dead, because of a cowardly, no hoper Nikolas Cruz.

    I understand that some people have a romanticised version that they are John Wayne and could outshoot a rogue gunman. The answer is limit gun laws surely?

    Why do you need automatic, military grade weapons? I just don't get it, I just now a lot of parents and siblings will go on without their children.


...in todays world with access to the knowledge to make incendiaries...wouldn't the whackos just switch to this? Or get their guns illegally? The issue is more I think...how has the mentality that has led to things like this come about.

How do we treat the disease and not the symptoms?

One of the reasons I think guns are part of the problem is because we can't even have a discussion about them. You'd be hard pressed to find someone not willing to talk about the state of mental health in the US. Switch the topic to guns and the "From my cold dead hands" crowd immediately shuts the discussion down. We've somehow allowed self defense and public safety to morph into toxically politicized gun rights/control.
