Please please please re think this “constitutional right” about guns.
We went to bed last night with the breaking news of yet another horrific massacre in the US by a lone gun man. Over 20 innocent people in Newtown murdered in a matter of minutes.
This has to stop.
Why do Americans need to carry a gun? Don’t give me a speech about it being a right. Why do you feel the need to be permitted to carry a deadly weapon? Why do you need that?
Innocent children have been gunned down at school. Teachers murdered. Why? Over the summer innocent people murdered at the cinema. Because your country has a constitutional right to allow people to carry a gun. What about those people’s constitutional right to go about their daily lives without the threat of being massacred.
Please make it stop.

I saw a Tweet last night that summed it up even more succinctly:
Only in America is gun ownership a right but healthcare a privilege.
And they call that the Land of the Free?
