Too late, they’ve already been renamed Marco Rubio because they’re so easy to buy.

Rethuglicans, always late to the party.

Weapons sales for self protection naturally on the rise. Shoot first. What is note worthy is the number of women coming toward reality in USA. Thanks to the media and the hysterical pathological left Trump will win a second term. He might die during this long office. Pence should be ok,

You've identified the absolutely sheer blind stupidity of the so-called 'resistance.'

In the unlikely event they impeach or assassinate (either is equally possible with these people) President Trump they'll get in his place President Pence.

They might find him very difficult to handle.

March 13, 1996 - Thomas Hamilton enters Dunblane School and murders 16 children and one teacher.

27 February 1997 - Firearms (Amendment) Act 1997 comes in to force banning all handguns except .22 calibre rimfire.

27 November 1997 - Firearms (Amendment) (No. 2) Act 1997 banned the remaining handguns.

25 May 2015 - US still sending thoughts and prayers, banning doors in schools and blaming video games. Meanwhile, the UK has had no further school shootings.

And guess what David there's still handgun crime in the UK, and its increasing. In fact you can rent firearms by the hour. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/knife-gun-crime-stats-latest-england-wales-rise-increase-a8177161.html

Laws banning stuff work so well - for the gangs.

If the police had done their job enforcing the laws at the time, Dunblane wouldn't have happened.

UK 6.5 guns per 100 people USA 101 guns per 100 people.

UK 59 gun homicides USA 8,124 gun homicides.

Seems to be a bit of a difference. Why do you think that is? Movies? Video games? God?

Oh well, let's not have any laws then, after all people keep breaking them. Laws cannot prevent crime, they are a society's way of defining what is not acceptable and spelling out penalties for transgressors.

If the police had done their job enforcing the laws at the time, Dunblane wouldn't have happened.

Ah yes, a policeman in every house.

David if the police had done their job and listened to the complaints against the Dunblane shooter, he would have had his guns taken off him.

I also like the way you compare app,es with oranges without any understanding of the differences between the two countries.

The Police did listen, but found insufficient evidence to lay any charges. Can't blame the police for not prosecuting something that isn't there.

As for the differences between the two countries. that's easy to spot. One has a relatively tight control on weapons of murder, the other has had 101 mass shootings 2018 to date.
