Americans want gun law reform, but their senators and congressmen, a lot of whom are in the pay of the gun lobby, choose to ignore what the vast majority of American citizens want.

    @Jonathan – Ireland has gun laws, but yet, all the criminals have guns. What happened at MIT has nothing to do with gun laws. Show some respect.

    Guns are big business in the United States There are corruptions protecting this business . Governors and senators can be bribed or gun pointed on ‘protections’. If there is an overload of guns in that State, they can sell it elsewhere around the globe to crazy people

    Americans will give up their guns as soon as criminals give up crime and deer start puttin’ themselves in the bed of their trucks. Guns are what make America great. Make no mistake, a few pressure cooker bombs have no relevance to gun laws.

    How is his comment disrespectful?

    Using feeling words will not make ur opinion that he was being disrespectful anymore valid.

    Sure isnt the main tenet of America the right of free speech?

    Typical pro American response.

    Also, pressure pot laws are due for a revision. Regulate pressure pot sales.
