Reader Input: Australia solved killing problem

-A +A

What do you mean there are no easy answers to the gun problems, gun violence, sporadic shooting sprees in America?
Show the American public graphic images of the latest carnage of 6- and 7-year-old children in their classroom, riddled by high-caliber bullets.
This is certainly not a picture the gun industry, gun lobbies and NRA want Americans to see as they seek to perpetuate and portray guns in an antiseptic light.
Or you could do as the Australian government did in 1996 to stem the tide of mass killings with guns. They totally banned all semi-automatic weapons. And guess what, there hasn’t been a shooting rampage in 15 years down under.
