My country, a unique example, is the only nation to experience periodic massacres of people by killers armed with automatic weapons. When relatives of massacre victims gather to plead with legislatures to prohibit sales of such weapons, other citizens irately rise up to defend “our second Amendment rights.” The Amendment states: “
mso-bidi-font-family:Georgia;mso-bidi-language:EN-US”> proposed background checks on all gun sales, and bans on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>Timothy McVeigh, a Christian and army veteran, would have qualified for gun purchases, but he didn’t use guns to blow up the Oklahoma City federal building. The gun issue goes beyond US law-making capacity. It goes to reforming an old and established culture of guns and killing, one that the President helps shape every time he sends out a murderous drone on a “target” to kill an un-indicted person in another country. Obama might honestly admit: ”I’m not one to change US culture, and truthfully guns r’us.”
