Good Lord. All I can say is that I hope you don't live in the US & if you do I hope you don't vote. If more people were responsible citizens, as was intended and expected by those that founded this country, (ie meaning that everyone owned and knew how to properly use a firearm) then this sort of occurence would be far fewer. If the woman that had this happened to her had been armed she might still be alive. If the two main, cited, witnesses had been armed the woman might be alive. The same thing is true in the post that Gemini made - had that poor woman at the school armed herself she might be breathing now. She thought she had done what she should - she had a restraining order, the authorities knew about the guy that did it, her friends knew - she sent them all pics of the guy - the only thing she didn't do was make sure she could take care of herself if the nut showed up at her doorstep with a gun/knife/bat/pair of fists. Now she's dead. I'm sorry, unless you have a magic wand & can wave it & make every gun in the world disappear then "banning guns" does NOTHING except remove the possiblity of law abiding men & women of protecting themselves & others from non law abiding people. Not to mention that without the right to keep & bear a citizenry has zero chance of protecting itself from an opressive government. I feel sorry for anyone that doesn't believe that everyone should have guns because that's not the world we live in & it never will be. But don't worry because we can (in the USA) all have guns (ok, mostly - insane & felons can't) and I do and I am responsible enough so that if I ever see someone dragging you by the hair through a building, beating the shit out of you, trying to mug you in an alley, or steal your child I'll step up & do what I have to to help. I pray I never have to, but rest assured I will.
