I am old enough to have been alive when President Kennedy was murdered, when Martin Luther King was murdered, when MalcolmX was murdered and when Robert Kennedy was murdered. These killings aroused anger and call for legislation to curb guns. Famous last words. Fast forward nearly fifty years and guns are available to any nut case, any disgruntled person, and, certainly, to any terrorist in search of a killing. So,how come there are over THREE HUNDRED MILLION GUNS in America?
New poll by the Associated Press reveal that two thirds of Americans want a ban on assault weapons, they want a ban on high speed magazine for rifles, but there is no prospect any such laws will be passed. The REAL problem is the US Supreme Court which has over turned rulings by Supreme Courts for generations that allow regulation of guns.
Oh, and the other reason is Americans vote the wrong way!
