Piers Morgan outrage about what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School is more than understandable. It caused a every parent in the country to wonder how safe their children are at school. But it’s hard to miss the the fact that instead of mentioning the over 400 kids shot in Chicago this year by criminals with illegal weapons- He goes after the right of every American to bear and keep arms.. In the process he ignores the fact that when the UK all but eliminated legal ownership of fire arms- Crimes committed by criminals with fire arms increased..
And People remembered that before guns were invented- the were other means of committing murder.

I have fired guns only once in my life, on a stag party to the Czech capital Prague a few years ago when part of the itinerary included a trip to an indoor shooting range. For three hours, our group were let loose on everything from Magnum 45 handguns and Glock pistols, to high-powered ‘sniper’ rifles and pump-action shotguns.
It was controlled, legal, safe and undeniably exciting. But it also showed me, quite demonstrably, that guns are killing machines.
Rarely has the hideous effect of a gun been more acutely laid bare than at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, two weeks ago – when a deranged young man called Adam Lanza murdered 20 schoolchildren aged six and seven, as well as six adults, in a sickening rampage.
