I try not to talk too much on international issues, just because I dont realy understand it, but obviously everyone has heard of the school shooting that happened in Texas.
I know a lot of people are making comparrisons between the abortion laws that are going on and gun laws, why are some people so determined to make women have baby’s only to let them get shot in school. This doesnt make any sense to me.
Why do you need to own a gun, that can fire 500 shots a minutes as a private person, nothing to do with the army. Who are you going to use that against? Do they think the Canadian’s are going to invade? Maybe the Mexicans? Russia might pop over to Alaska I suppose, but then they would have to get through Canada to get to the rest of America, I just dont get it.
But I was wondering what made this school shooting different, was it because it was a school? Children involved? The fact the shooter was so young?
Or, is it possible, that people heard there had been a school shooting in the US and their response was oh again and they felt shocked at their lack of outrage, because it keeps happening and nothing changes, maybe someone could tell me if the laws have changed since Sandy Hock, where there are a lot of similarities, young shooter, young victims, lots of victims.
All I do know, is the first mass shooting in the UK and we changed our gun laws to make sure something like that could never happen again and contary to belief, we can own guns in the UK, we have to fill out paperwork, make sure we have a locked place to keep guns, just some common sense rules.
My heart goes out to the victims and their families,
I would love to think I wont be writing a post like this again in 6 months time, but I think I will be, nothing will have changed and the shock factor will be less again.
