Strict gun control, or abolish them completely, is the only answer.
It worked for Canada. It worked for Australia. It worked for many other countries.
Unfortunately I don't think it will work for the United States, because the threat of taking guns away will cause the people to revolt and kill even more people. Nobody wants that.
The United States is too far gone. You're in a situation where there is no winning outcome. Eventually everyone will kill eachother. Seems to be the American way, I guess.
With all of that said, my point still stands. The solution is never more guns. When someone decides to shoot up a place, the second they have killed 1 person, they have accomplished their mission. They have struck fear into peoples lives and taken a life. It is exactly the same as a terrorist's mission. They've already won the game, before anyone has a chance to retaliate.
It is funny you bring up freedom and jail at the end of your post. Last I checked the United States incarcerates more people over petty things than any other country. Are you really free? Can you walk around a college campus with your head held high, knowing you are safe? Probably not. I certainly would not in the United States. Living in fear is not freedom, despite what your politicians would like you to believe.
I hear the phrase "America is the greatest Country in the world" touted a lot by Americans. Americans who are completelt ignorant to what life is like in other countries. Believe it or jo
