I wonder if the people of Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Palestine, etc, etc, just shrug their shoulders and utter those callous words, 'collateral damage'.

Children are children, innocent victims, wherever they may be.

We had the shock of this in Dunblane, Scotland, it's awful, worst nightmares come true.
We have also, always had pretty strict gun laws, laws that were tightened up after Dunblane.
There was no mad rush here to buy guns.

Exactly the opposite is happening in the USA, people are going out and buying more of the type of weapon used in this latest 'kiddie carnage' in case there is a clamp down/ban on them.

Madness, the more guns out there, the more chance of these tragic events occuring.

Work in a china shop, you will break cups. Carry guns, someone will get shot.
