    Gun packer kills assailant in an Oklahoma restaurant after assailant shoots two people. Oh wow, one instance where a good guy with a gun kills a bad guy with a gun? Just think, if there weren't any guns, this wouldn't have even happened!

    I’m all for hand guns being totally banned and confiscated, including from the police. One one needs a hand gun. Every citizen should be allowed to own one single shot hunting rifle after demonstrating psychological stability, insurance and a clean record.

    Those who most want to be armed are the very ones who should never be allowed to own any kind of weapon.

    Hey, I can dream of a better world can’t it?

    Gun loving Iceland hasn't had a gun shooting murder in a decade. A third of all Icelanders own guns (about the same as the United States).

    The difference is that potential gun owners have to go through a rigorous process of testing for competence and ability, background checks and interview by the police, attending a gun safety seminar including shooting, and finally a doctor exam to see if you are mentally and physically competent. That's all. Oh and the process takes a few years.

    Schmidt, do you really think the US will follow that path; don't forget in Iceland you get well educated as well, which will help I guess. Also they don't have the same racial issues as here. It is an well run society part of the Scandinavian culture,which is absolutely not comparable to mess in this country. You should know such as you have a Finnish origin.

    The great thing about almost all other countries is that they have no evil organisations like the NRA. The Nazis were enough!

    I think we overlook that all other countries are more than 250 years old and share a more common heritage. There might be more of a familial interaction in other countries. Most other countries are more the size of one USA state and issues are handled locally . White teenage males??? I suspect the potentially most volatile segment of the population.

    With our current representation we will not see change. A wise man once said "you can't teach an old dog new tricks", we need new dogs. New politicians with open minds.

    "A president with a different approach" was the mind set of swing voters who voted for trump. They are the swing voters who voted for democrats a majority of the time, but were willing to take a chance on trump believing that once in office, he'd' transform into an impartial mediator between the two parties, forcing them to work together to get things done..... Man, trump not only proved them wrong, he has fucked everyone on both sides. The only winner has been trump.

    It seems to me that a serious attempt to get rid of the gerrymandering and give uncommitted voters a voice would do wonders.

    This is just one of thousands of good reasons why Americans must abolish that corrupt Oligarchy in Washington, DC.

    SYG, stand your ground Florida law allows a man to shoot another because he was assaulted and knocked to the ground, the assaulter is dead. Shot almost point black, all because he or his GF/wife parked in a handicap zone. Why didn't the guy with the gun pull his phone out and call the cops? Because pulling his gun out and killing someone was easier. Amerika is fucked up, and it's laws are even worse.

    In the 1960's, these two men would've had a fist fight, and nobody would have died, a possibility.
