    What compels Americans to kill each others?

    Is there a philosophical, or religious basis for the laws of a country to let a random dude being able to shoot his own country folk about a school, theater, concert, etc., etc.?

    I understand the concept of death that drives us all in some way.

    I knew someone from Tahiti who wanted to get a gun a few of years ago, so he could shoot dead a random person - preferably one with immigrant background, even though he was an immigrant himself.

    He said he just wanted to have that sort of power, that sort of freedom.

    I disagreed, and tried to talk him out of it.

    Thankfully, being in France, the best he could do was playing Call Of Duty.

    But, to make a story short, he ended up throwing himself under a high speed train.

    I think it's sad that he killed himself, but I'm glad he never had the freedom to go postal on other innocent people.

    And precisely why would a country grant such an insane freedom to its citizens?
    Thanks from Tedminator

    No, people don't kill each others on such a scale in civilised countries.

    Why do you ask?

    Sometimes I hate my countrymen, too. For instance when I'm stuck in traffic, or packed in the subway.

    Maybe we would see more shooting sprees if we had easier access to guns?

    If this is some sort of natural selection, why the need to have an amendment?

    I thought Paris had their own mass shooting a little more than two years ago.

    Over a hundred killed as I recall.

    WELL over a hundred.

    But, maybe that was different because it was a bunch of radical Muslim terrorist murderers?

    France ain't "civilised"?

    Yes, we had. It was terrible. But you reckon it's not as common as in the US, yes?

    So the core problem is easy access to guns, correct?
