  1. Some incredibly ill-thought out and offensive comments made by Boris Johnson after the Dunblane school shooting to a Canadian magazine have been found. https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/18086052.boris-johnson-compared-post-dunblane-gun-crackdown-nanny-confiscating-toys/?ref=fbshr&fbclid=IwAR2LGjsSPhUlkYzvmc3m6hDLWTYZYas5a5dEifnbSRAX6jHdqr0xKdipo34 Honestly, this is horrible. The complete lack of empathy he has shown here, he seems completely unconcerned that 16 kids had just been shot with their teacher. For background: the primary school in Dunblane is the site of the UK's only school shooting ever to occur. A man from the local community who had owned guns legally drove up to the primary school and deliberately severed the phone lines that connected the houses nearby. He then made his way into the school and began shooting the class that was using the gym. 16 children and one adult were killed, other people were also injured. After this incident handguns were banned in the UK. You can still own a rifle or shotgun if it is for a gun club or for pest control but you have to register it and keep it under certain conditions. Honestly, what kind of twatwaffle would make these comments? It's like he has absolutely no idea that these guns were banned because they have no use or application other than killing. It's not like you could use a revolver to get rid of rabbits on a farm or go clay pigeon shooting. The reason there have only ever been two shooter incidents in the UK is because we have strict gun laws, the other incident was a man in Cumbria who shot 12 people in his town with his legally owned rifle. There was an argument made that he should have had his license to own the guns taken away because he had engaged in dangerous behaviour in the past so this is treated more as an example of why the law should be upheld. I really hope he gets voted out of office next week, otherwise what might become of us when he holds views like this?
  2. Last monday the CDC published a report according to which guns are the third leading cause of death for US children. If it were an illness with the same level of preventability as gun violence we would be talking about an horrifying epidemic and demanding vaccines. As a foreigner I'll never ever understand this aspect of US culture. As a mom I am shocked. I can imagine that many look at the stats and think that it won't happen to their own children because they are white, their family isn't violent or abusive and they stay away from dangerous neighbourhoods and from the wrong friends. But the callousness of this reasoning is breathtakingly frightening. https://www.google.it/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/opinions/children-are-dying-because-of-americas-lax-gun-policies/2017/06/20/21935b94-55c2-11e7-b38e-35fd8e0c288f_story.html And here you can find a link to the study by the CDC. I thought of bumping the old thread about gun control but it was inactive for more than a year and already 21 pages long. Feel free to merge though.

    Get to Them Early

    Why is it that we can teach our kids simple, basic things when they are very young and it sticks with them forever, stuff like, "Don't suck your thumb," and "Don't run with scissors," and "Don't go in the swimming pool untiil 30 minutes after you've eaten," but we can't seem to get the message through that they should not play with guns. A woman who promotes guns and gun safety, gets shot in the back by her 4-year old son while driving in her truck. Another woman gets shot by her 2-year old in a Walmart after the kid pulled the loaded gun out of her purse. My point is, you don't see grown men and women sucking their thumbs, running with scissors, and mostly careful about swimming after eating, but we've still got too many people running around with weapons, both legal and not, which end up in lives being ruined. It's just senseless. Perhaps if we are more careful with how we are around kids, they will learn a more positive message from us. Peace, love and rock 'n roll! Just sayin...
