That's great. If only everyone could be as responsible as you. The fact is, that's not possible, as the most recent shooting has shown. Again, I ask: But why can't tighter laws be enacted? Why does a civilian need an assault weapon? How does it make sense that bullets are apparently sold alongside other household items in supermarkets? If a driver of a car needs to be licenced, why shouldn't a holder of a gun be similarly licenced?

This Denver guy isn't just one lunatic. Like I posted earlier today, the US is known for such incidents. Surely you know them better than me: Columbine, Virginia Tech, and a host of others. Doesn't this worry you? I'm not even American and it worries me greatly.
