yeah, i agree with that, but the quote was alittle...harsh
right, the problem is, everyone wants to tell another country what theyre doing wrong, but doesnt look at itself....yes, America has a gun problem, but its not like we dont do anything about it....we have many programs and restrictions pertaining to guns, but you only hear about the bad events....
the problem is, the majority of the european's(general, im just saying anyone who isnt american or canadian commenting) views in this thread are incredibly one sided...and unless you have lived in america, you really dont know our problems and have no right to tell us how we should solve it.....yes, getting rid of guns would be amazing, but if you look at previous posts, we discussed it already, and its not gonna happen
So stop diagnosing our problems, and look at yourself....more importantly, if your post doesnt pertain to the actual event, then piss off and post somewhere else plx
I've looked at Australias crime problems very thoroughly thanks. I've also looked at alot of gun-related incidents in America.
right, the problem is, everyone wants to tell another country what theyre doing wrong
I don't look at Americas gun problem, and crime rates because I want my country to look all high and mighty, I express my opinions because I feel they're correct, and should be given some notification, and not ignored. Simply because I don't live under the constitution of America, does not make my opinion any less notable.
we have many programs and restrictions pertaining to guns
and so do alot of nations around the world, and yet yours still allow weapons to be sold and bought with very little identification in some states.
I suggest you look at Virginias gun laws, in buying and selling guns and how easy it is to obtain one, LEGALLY.
unless you have lived in america, you really dont know our problems and have no right to tell us how we should solve it...
I haven't lived in America, one day I do plan on moving to the United States in law-enforcement.
Let me ask why... why do you have this notion, this idea, that if somone does not live under your constitution, follow the same laws, have the same restrictions and obligations as a citizen, have any less of a right to expressing their opinion to you.
I hope you realise, you are the one being quite one-sided, have you lived in another country before with tighter gun laws? Have you experienced a nation which does not have 12,000 + Gun related deaths per year? and don't you dare
tell me America has more citizens, therefor more gun-related deaths. Statisticly, you have more gun related deaths then any other country, do the fucking maths.
(don't even dare mention Africa.. it's a 3rd world country.. America is NOT)
Australia still holds the record for gun related mass murders though.
35 dead, 1996 Port Arthur Shooting
He used rifles though, AR-15's and an AR-10 and a shotgun by memory, I was a little young.. so I don't know.. but it lead to a nation wide banning of all Automatic, semi-automatic rifles in Australia, as well as many hand guns.
Statistically, gun-related deaths in Australia have been at an all-time low since then.
If America woke the fuck up, and offered a large rebate on gun-disposel, stopped selling guns altogether, eventually the gun problem would go down.
obviously some things like hunters rifles etc would still be readily available.
but really, in the end, it would lead to less deaths in America due to gun related crimes, not more.
Don't use the excuse that people have a right to protect themselfs, if they feel the need to protect themselfs, there's obviously a problem in the first place.
which starts with the gun laws in place, at the moment.
they NEED a looking into, I don't care how-far the restrictions go, but if just one more restriction was inplaced on guns in America after this weeks incidents, more lifes will have been saved.
and some good may have come out of this..
