How many more people have to die before the US wake up and ban AR-15 assault rifle. The fact that it may be in their constitution the right to bear arm does not mean that they cannot do something to stop the needless loss of life.

It is amazing that after all the deaths attributed to idiots with guns the American people seem to still continue to back the right to bear arms. I am sure the forefathers never meant for these senseless killing to go on when they agreed to allow citizens to be all to own guns.

This is the 21st century and as human beings, we cannot find any kind of compromise to take these lethal weapons out of the hands of idiotic people. It is time to be proactive rather than reactive. We should not be waiting for the loss of life and people severely injured before we started to want to care. Our communities are choking on these untimely deaths.

It would appear that individuals want to appoint themselves judge, jury and executioner against what they perceive the so-called intolerant behaviour, we do not have the right to judge others and the way they live their life.

There may be thousands of individuals that do not approve of certain behaviour that as human beings, we possess, but we are not moral police and as such we do not go around murdering people because we disagree with the way they run their lives.

The US needs to stop and really think about the ways in which they are going to contain the kind of guns that get in the hands of delusional individuals. They seem to forget the college students, the cinema attendees, and countless other innocent people who lost their lives because certain people could get their hands on weapons of mass destruction.

It did not take them long to go into Iraq because they perceive that Saddam Hussein was in possession of weapons of mass destruction, yet right in their back yard there are hundreds and thousands of weapons, in my opinion, are weapons of mass destruction and they are burying their heads in the sand rather than confront this modern day plague.

There are those that would argue that guns do not kill, people do. Well, in that case, let us curtail the kind of weapons that they can get their hands on and be able to legally purchase an AR-15 assault rifle should be one of the guns that they should never be allowed to have.

Wake up America your citizens are perishing needlessly because there seems to be a lackadaisical attitude toward the control of guns. How many more must die? How many more families must be destroyed? When will this end?

Every one of those individuals that died has family members who are mourning their loss, they may have a lifestyle that does not fit our narrow-minded so-called moral fibre, but they were human beings nevertheless and they will be missed. So get off your high horse and do something about controlling guns, an especially AR-15 assault rifle.
