This Reuter’s article says it all, except…….
“Mass shootings have become a feature of life in the United States.”
“In one of the worst recent incidents, a gunman dressed as Santa Claus killed nine guests at a Christmas Eve party, before taking his own life in Covina, California, a suburb of Los Angeles.” “On April 16, 2007, Virginia Tech, a university in Blacksburg, Virginia, became the site of the deadliest rampage in modern U.S. history when a student gunman killed 32 people and himself.”
“Guns are widely available for purchase in the United States, a country that prides itself on the right to own weapons for self defense and hunting.”
Medicynical Note: We have almost 1 gun/person in the U.S. (90 guns for every 100 people) That includes the very young, very old, the infirm and the crazies. It’s just too damn easy.
It can happen in other places as well–Germany today, 16 dead in early reports. The common factor is the gun!
