    @Sandra O’Fucáif: The problem is that there are too many triggers around for poeple to pull so Fucáif with that logic (sorry, couldn’t help myself).

    @cormac o neill: if having guns makes people safer then why doesn’t having more nuclear weapons also make the world safer?

    Its the same logic after all.
    Why is America so against North Korea having nuclear weapons, surely having its own nuke will make North Korea and the world safer?

    Big flaws in the American logic of more guns = safer

    @Sandra O’Fucáif: Impossible to defend yourself or run against someone who is intent on killing using a gun. Any other weapon and you have a chance. Take away the guns and these lunatics lose the means to mass murder.This argument that guns don’t kill, people do, is becoming more shallow with each passing gun related tragedy.Take away the guns and yes people will still be murdered. But in far fewer numbers.

    @neilo: You never heard of MAD? Stephen is quite correct despite the paradoxical ring to his statement.

    @Barry Somers:

    A bit like politics, I guess!

    Guns only impact locally, whereas nuclear weapons have wider implications for mankind, if in the wrong hands, especially with deluded head of isolated rogue state.

    Whilst Trumph – not to upset NRA – doesn’t seem overly bothered with lax Gun laws at home, he is right to open tough talks with NK to try and bring rocket man to heel.
