How would they know which person shouldn't own a gun? It's hard to tell which is insane with certain people.
Don't let everyone have guns... less people will be shot. It really is THAT f*ckING SIMPLE.
and more people will die slower, drawn out deaths as without the gun; all of these socially engineered sociopaths become forced to invent more elaborate 'gruesome' means to kill those they desire dead.
Exactly. Ban guns, psychopaths will find other ways to kill or hurt people. Also, banning firearms won't get rid of street dealers and the black market. So I guess criminals can always get firearms illegaly, because they are not going to obey some stupid law.
So what's the solution? Give EVERYONE a gun and let natural selection take it's course?
Here in the UK, where guns are tightly controlled, there are far, far fewer shooting deaths than in the US. Not just because there's less people, but because there's less guns.
Yes, it's that simple. We don't have as many bombings, either. Or other forms of domestic terrorism.
Bryce Williams had hands and feet. Do you think, if he didn't have a gun, he would have gone out there and tried to kick and punch three people to death?

So if there hadn't been a hundred years or so of complete failure to control guns, this would still be a problem? If America didn't think they were still in the f*cking wild west and needed a gun for protection...
Look at it this way. If, for the last 100 years, people had not had the opportunity to buy a gun from a local store, there would be many, many less people in the US with guns. Which would mean less people would have been able to pick up a gun and shoot people. But because the constitution and US law says people can own guns, people have guns, and therefore shoot people. Sure, crazy people do most of the shooting, but can we be sure they were crazy when they bought the gun? Or were they buying a gun initially to protect themselves from the several million other gun owners?
If the US hadn't enabled it's people to arm themselves, they would not be killing each other EVERY SINGLE DAY.
