So in the sad aftermath of the latest mass shooting in America, it is time to discuss gun control again. I am very anti guns, as is to be expected from the resident leftie I suppose I am so glad it is something we mostly seem to get right in this country. Armed police are not everyday sights in most places (although this is more common than it was) and you don't have every man and his dog having the right to own a firearm. It is one of the reasons I have never wanted to live in America, guns are so prevalent, they are accidents waiting to happen let alone if someone loses it or has a bad day and decides to take out their coworkers on their way out. It's terrifying.
I was interested to read about the Australian gun control and how strict it became and how they changed their laws after their last mass shooting in 1996 and they've not had one since. https://thinkprogress.org/australia-reacts-las-vegas-shooting-1110c7cf0af2/ This recent article asks why America hasn't acted to prevent these horrible incidents.
Do you think that America should change the constitution? As their right to bear arms seems to me to be an outdated and frankly dangerous idea. It will certainly never happen with Trump in charge!
Peace and Love
