    Hardly a week goes by without a new report of ANOTHER mass gun shooting by some lunatic in the USA.
    ONCE AGAIN…Americans are still trying to figure out the solution to
    these gun shootings:. Is it “more guns”, “less guns” , “more mental
    heath care”, “more religion”,

    “less bullying” , “more armed guards” etc.

    Hey, Americans!! Just Look around you at the rest of the civilized world.
    Every other developed country in the world has ALREADY figured out how NOT make mass gun shootings a monthly news event.

    England, Sweden,
    Spain, Italy, Japan, New Zealand. Spain , Sweden, Finland, Denmark,
    Greece, Austria ,Canada, Australia, South Korea, Taiwan, China, France,
    Germany…all the other ADVANCED DEVELOPED countries of the world DON’T
    have these monthly shooting MASSACRES.

    Only in the USA have gun mass gun shootings become a WEEKLY ritual.


    It’s simple. Because other countries take gun ownership SERIOUSLY.
    in other countries can’t just walk into Guns Galore (the store near Ft
    Hood that has the distinction of having sold guns to TWO mass gun killers…so far) and buy an assault
    rifle… like a 6 pack of beer.

    Meanwhile….owning a lethal weapon in the US is a JOKE.
    can own a gun….”raging racists”. the mentally insane, the blind, drug
    addicts, alcoholics, suspected terrorists, people with uncontrollable
    rage, 4 year old toddlers, even people who don’t know which end of the
    gun is front…ANYONE..can own a deadly weapon that can cause mass

    Yet Americans are still scratching their heads trying to figure out
    why THEY are the only DEVELOPED country on earth with monthly gun mass
    shootings and massacres?

    When all the other ADVANCED countries around the world have already
    solved a problem that Americans still keep having month after
    month…year after year…and Americans STILL can’t figure out why they
    are the only one left with the problem.– It’s probably because

    Americans don’t have enough common sense to learn from other people.

    They have to keep making the same mistake over and over again.

    It’s called STUPIDITY.
