Another seventeen people dead and no nearer to a solution...

This isn’t Trump’s fault, it wasn’t Obama’s fault, it’s not the founding fathers fault. The second amendment was written into the constitution, giving Americans the right to defend themselves.

Trump has reportedly said that teachers should be armed. Teachers say “I want to teach, I don’t want to shoot someone.” But there was an armed deputy at the school in Florida, who “bottled it”.

Not everyone is capable of doing the right thing in this scenario... clearly the deputy, clearly the teachers don’t want to be responsible.

In an interview with the BBC, an ex military officer asked how you can train a civilian to handle an event. You can’t. It’s not the actual shooting of the gun you deal with, it’s the confrontation. Guns are easy to shoot. Shooting at people isn’t.. and shooting at people whilst they’re shooting back, isn’t. It’s a mentality that the deputy didn’t possess and sadly, kids died..

There’s no point in raging against the NRA machine, it’s a tough brick wall, supported by billions of dollars and low people in high places..

Companies are starting to cut ties with the NRA so hopefully more will follow and reduce its power and influence.

The government should have the balls to bring in legislation. Who the hell needs a semi automatic weapon? When the second ammendment was made, I believe guns were muskets and hardly capable of mass killings in a few mins.

And donations to political parties should be made illegal. It's bribery and corruption.

You need to listen to Emma Gonzalez, a student at the Parkland, Florida high school.




John Oliver sum this up. When people said this is not the right time to discuss gun control, he said "yes it fcuking is".

The companies only cut ties, following social media campaigns against them. Discounted rooms and car rental for NRA members.. it’s whats called “paying lip service”.. it would be interesting to see if shareholders of those companies are indeed NRA members themselves..

Your misjudging the mood in America right now.
Parents are taking time off work to "protect" schools, armed to the teeth. Its only a matter of time before incidental killing due to the ethnic tensions.

Its not less guns, its more guns. Its "soccer mums" who see Harley Quinn from suicide squads as a role model.

Harley Quinn is from Batman..

.. but I digress... I’m not misjudging the mood of anyone.. “soccer mums” are taking a separate line from other mums. This is nothing new, you’ve just read about it again..

Delta and United Airlines have now ended their association with the NRA. I hope the momentum continues and this is the start of change that will make a real difference. Those surviving students seem a pretty determined bunch so all the best to them.
