Another shooting in Colorado
 
Haven't seen sth about this in the forum. Another shooting!

http://m.news-gazette.com/news/court...-townhome.html

Guns shall not be available legally! I think the US should change that law! There are crazy people out there all over te world. But if guns are not available legally, not so many people get killed in massacres. Sure, people get killed all over the world. But if the guy from Newton had not been able to get that gun, the kids would still be alive. Also, the kind of guns you can buy, machine guns, is a bad thing. But I am thinking that the weapons lobby is so big that it is impossible for the President to stop it

How old are you? Is this post a joke? Is it sarcasm? And you're from Germany?

If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns.

I am 37 and this post is not a joke. I am from Germany. Sure, criminals buy guns from illegal sources. But the example in Newton, it was a young guy. If there had not been guns in the house, he would not have the chance to shoot somebody

Wow, just wow. I don't know how to answer that without insulting you.

How can you insult me? We are just discussing the subject. ;)

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

I work for the US military on Ramstein Air Base. Also, I spend my vacation in the States every year. Both since 10 years now. So I am pretty much familiar with the American mentality, the laws and the American way of life. For that reason I do not blame any American about how you think about weapons. Just tried to make you think about that point of view from other countries.

We a free country, too. I feel pretty safe because not everybody carries a gun.

With all due respect, if you're looking at gun control in America through the filter of Newtown, then you know next to nothing about the American way of life.

Per Capita, you're more likely to be murdered in Germany than you are in the United States. ;-)

I just tool Newton as an example, because i just happened. During the last decades, there was only ine shootout in a German school. I do not say people are better here, by far not! It is just hard to buy a gun and kill so many people at once.

What makes you think it is easier to get killed in Germany?
