When will it ever stop?

"How many kids have to die before you say less guns not more?"

For the first time, almost ever I think, I have found some respect for Piers Morgan.

This is an argument worth watching:

How many parents are looking at their children today thinking "There but for the Grace of God go I?"

The Dunblane School Massacre was horrific.  How familiar though do these words sound today:

"After gaining entry to the school, Hamilton made his way to the gymnasium and opened fire on a Primary One class of five and six-year-olds, killing or wounding all but one person. Fifteen children died together with their class teacher."

I am so very grateful now to those that started the snowdrop campaign and helped to start the control of guns here in the UK.  I know we have a problem still with illegal weapons, but imagine where we could have been if the Government hadn't have acted.

Australia also clamped down after the Port Arthur massacre which happened about the same time as Dunblane.

The list of countries by firearm-related death rate by per 100,000 of populations makes for interesting reading.  Sort it by the homicide column.   If you are interested in the laws by country then this appears to be a good website http://www.gunpolicy.org/firearms/region/

Those poor families today in Newtown.  One man, one day, a life time of pain and hurt.

I just keep looking at my Cog and can't imagine how horrendous it was and is for those parents.

When will it ever stop?
