EU should press US for gun law change

If the USA had stringent gun laws, and school massacres were happening here or in Europe because we had an American-style gun culture, the USA would now be bombarding the world’s airwaves lecturing us on how and why we should get our act together.

Now is the time for the EU to officially contact the US State Department and express great concern about their recurring school mass killings and its ludicrous gun legislation.

Gun worship is now so embedded in the American psyche that most of their films or TV are unable to produce a drama or even a comedy without this deadly weapon making an appearance as if it was the most natural thing in the world.

Legislation to massively curtail personal and multiple gun ownership could be President Obama’s great legacy to American children, their parents and the rest of the world appalled by these now all too familiar and heartbreaking events.
