    Angry Pandering To Americans Who Believe Their Constitutional Right To Bear Arms Should Be Absolute

    's 'Human Rights Watch' - including Amnesty International - so vocal in its criticism of the Philippines' anti-drugs campaign, while doing bugger all about the impact of ongoing laxity of US Gun Laws following the recent killing sprees:

    Even if a National Rifle Association meeting was machine-gunned Arthur, I can't see them changing their childish and selfish stance on the issue.

    Still think they're in the blinkin Wild West.

    ... lest it's ever forgotten, 100 victims massacred in these shootings over a 13 year spate were schoolchildren ... twenty as young as Elementary grade!

    While people are prepared to turn a blind eye to it...

    After the Dunblane massacre, most guns were banned in the UK.

    No such horrors here since... thank god.

    The US will not change, guns will remain prevalent throughout society. So many people in the US think the answer is to arm teachers etc. It's a bit like trying to argue with a Corybynista - they are wrong but refuse to see the light.

    I think the only answer in the U.S is to secure the schools with entry metal detectors and security guards.. It`ll cost big money but only option because if the politicians try to take away their second amendment rights there will be another civil war... Americans do not like the risk of big tyrannical government and that`s why they have the right to own guns!

    Very valid point Arthur. A classic case of pointing the finger rather than looking in the mirror.
