But what about our love affair with guns in this country?
I know guns don't kill people, people do but guns make it a hell of a lot easier. Jared Lee Loughner was not going to stab 20 people to death or bludgeon 20 people with a baseball bat unless they all stood still and waited their turn to die.
We have to blame Arizona's almost non existent guns law for this lunatics rampage. In Arizona it seems that the only thing needed to buy a gun is the ability to fog up a mirror.
No permit or license is needed to own a gun in Arizona. No permit is needed to carry a concealed weapon either?????
It took all of 15 minutes for Jared Lee Loughner to buy the pistol and 31 round clip he used to shoot 20 people. It took less than 8 seconds to fire the entire clip.
8 seconds! Why the @@#$ does a civilian need to be able to fire 31 rounds in 8 seconds?!?!
I don't want to hear the bs about if someone at the event had a gun this massacre would not have happened either. All that would have happened is that instead of one person shooting people you would have had two and then when the cops got there they would have had no idea what the hell was going on.
When are we as a people going to grow up and realize the damage that guns do? The answer it appears is no time soon. God HELP America.
