I read something that struck a chord with me, even if it’s just a effectist phrase: Sandy Hook was a key moment in US history, when American society accepted by default that dozens of dead children is still a fair price to pay for ‘gun freedom.’
Unfortunately, Sandy Hook wasn't transformative.It was revelatory

The US apparently has problems other countries don't have to deal with: Feral hogs invading the backyards of families with children, and bears roaming around school districts looking for pyramids of grain.

Iceland number 10!? wtf, surprising, I would have thought they'd have the same regulations about guns as we do, here it's impossible to get a gun.

We're less than 5% of the world's population and we own over 40% of the guns (statistically)....more as we don't track them. Carry on! Nothing to see here :eyes:

They probably do but there's only one city and like a few hundred thousand people total, so it's probably just one guy with like 50 guns in a collection.

“If a weapon is so dangerous that a squad of police officers are too afraid to confront a single person wielding it, that weapon should be banned.”

one of my FB friends posted this. She's in the USA.
So here are my thoughts on this situation we know we're never going to fix the mental health issues in this country OK let's be honest. I'm tired of hearing your bullshit on let's just fix the mh issues. Yes good luck that will take decades Because unfortunately the majority of people in this country do not give 2 shits about people with mental health issues. as a social worker that makes me angry. so let's start by not allowing anyone who is under 25 years old to have guns. 18 year olds should be going to college or getting a job not carrying ar 15s. 2nd of all every person applying for a weapon Has to have a full psychological examination, yes, full, and a thorough and I mean thorough background check all the way back to kindergarten. I know it sounds crazy but i mean it. You were killing animals in the back yard no gun for you. 3rd , all gun owners are in a data base. You commit a crime guess whose losing their gun? Then all the holy, innocent, angels who carry ar 15s because it's their "right" have nothing to worry about right?
