Charleston shooting shows why Gun Control is needed. Forcefully, if need be, America needs to remove the guns!

Only causes crime and murder

NRA and Americans are responsible for the deaths today! Keep fighting gun control, keep killing people!

All of you trivializing the issue, NRA plants, you are the SAME SHILLS! You are complicit in murder!

The NRA is a piece of shit, who only cares about gun manufactures and not gun owners... 

But guns aren't the problem.   The problem, in this country, is how mental illness is demonized, along with the lack of affordable health care to deal with it.  

I've come to see in the Land of the Free,  there's only a future for the chosen few.

You want the biggest producer and dealer of weapons to remove the guns from the people?

It's a little like wrestling a gorilla. You don't quit when you're tired - you quit when the gorilla is tired.

Guns are the problem. Mental people with knives can't cause mass killings as easily

Agreed, there is a lot of nonsense surrounding the issue. The fact is that poverty and health care are linked when it comes to violent crime and gun deaths. If we weren't getting royally screwed economically things would be better.

I agree with Corvus, but I do think guns themselves are a problem. Guns are designed to kill efficiently and quickly, allowing for the crazy people to kill more people and faster because of their access to guns.

America should look to emulate Britain or Canada in their gun regulation laws. It's hard to imagine a situation where the US government is able to round up every gun of course, but they should offer incentive like... 200% money back for the gun's retail value whether it is legally or illegally owned. No repercussions for people who bring in illegally owned guns. It would be a lot of money but ultimately worth it. Tax the fuck out of gun manufacturers and the NRA to make up for it.

And of course US society needs to get rid of the stigma on mental health as well as put more effort into universal health care so people can afford to get help. It has been a long time since America was a great country but I'd love for us to get back to that.

"In my opinion, there is a more scientific approach we can take to all hot-button issues. We do this when we stop demonizing the opposing viewpoints or victimizing ourselves, and we acknowledge and account for our own biases and emotions to the best of our ability."

"Gun control" will do nothing. For every "mass shooting" there are 100 other people being killed in the streets by gangs. Taking peoples guns is a step in the WRONG direction.

In Britain we don't have guns. You hear about people getting stabbed to death fairly often and if you really wanted a gun its not impossible to get one. The knife is not evil, the scumbag holding it is, the knife is just a tool. You are supposed to use a knife to cut materials, you are supposed to use a gun to hunt or defend yourself. I thought the whole point of regular people having guns in America was to stop the government from screwing you over...

Guns are not evil. People are.
