I admit - I love America. I love the country, the people, the diversity, the food, the craziness. I know it has its faults but in general I love it. Except for one major thing. Guns. The country is a mess over this. If it wasn't so tragic it would be laughable. The whole thing has become a farce and I want to add my bit of nonsense to the subject.

Many have focused on how inaction of authorities in Oregon highlights racial biases and double standards in police use of force and counter-terrorism in the United States.

We Need to Challenge America About Guns

David Mooney | Posted 05.10.2015 | UK
David Mooney

It may sound trite, but it's a really simple equation. There will be fewer people shot if there are fewer firearms readily available. Just how many mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, or sisters must be told that a family member will not be coming home because a lunatic has put a bullet in them before the USA will actually do something about it?

Another day, another mass shooting spree. Surly by now, it's time for America to rethink its gun control laws and make the logical changes that other advanced countries have made.
