There is outrage now on the ability and/or NEED for assault weapons and the like other than law enforcement or the military. But for how long will this last or will it slowly fade away as it has in the past.
Maybe someone can explain to me why American's kill each other at a rate of 15,000 per year, while to the north, a step over an imaginary line, gun deaths are around 600 per year. Please don't use mass population, because the UK has a massive population, and their gun deaths are even lower than Canada, and Australia even lower with stricter laws. The killing must end. The assault weapons now slaughtering babies must be rounded up, destroyed, and never sold again. If you believe this will go away, and there is no hope to change the laws, think again. The time has come for change.
