    Perhaps Mark here below should do a little research himself. Indeed, gun control laws in the UK are among the tightest in the world, and low and behold, gun deaths are also among the lowest.
    As to whether the real problem lies with the media or in lack of gun control, clearly both play roles, but again, note that the UK media (the Sun, the Daily Mirror) love elaborating on horror stories such as Sandy Hook, but because gun laws are tighter, disturbed young men cannot go out and commit similar crimes on a regular basis as in the US because they have no access to weapons.
    I'm also curious that Mark below mentions Africa as a place to compare with the US when it comes to guns. Maybe he's right - maybe we should be comparing America more with the Congo than with Europe. Yet Africa is a huge place, like the US, and having lived in Ghana (West Africa) for some time, I can testify that downtown Accra felt much safer than may US cities.

    I notice that liberals on here call the site readers "gullible fools" for reading the fake Morgan Freeman statement. If you notice, this site acknowledges the statement as a fake and states that the topic is still worth discussion. Speaking of gullible fools, do a google search on racial hoaxes, fake hate crimes etc.. . and you will find a plethora of crimes committed by liberals staging fake crimes against themselves and then rallying, agitating and genrally stirring up trouble. Too bad the gullible fools get caught much of the time... Idiots.. Too many of them get smooth away with it however. If we want some new laws then we should set harsher penalties for liberals faking all these crimes against themselves then inciting riots and other civil/racial unrest.

    It is akways the same old story with gun controllers, a media sensation/firestorm to outlaw guns. The facts do not seem to matter to the left. Washington DC and Chicago both have long-standing gun bans in effect and they are both among the top of the list of murder capitals of the world. The assault weapon issue? I do not believe is an issue at all considering the guy had three weapons on him. Even if the 10 round limit were an issue 10 X 3 still equals 30 rounds. In light of this shooting I am more in line with improving school security as well as possibly arming school officials. Criminals do not obey laws so it does not matter what laws are passed unless we have the ability to defend ourselves and our children things like this will continue to happen. I wonder why no one worries about all the 5 year olds and up running the streets with AK47s in all over Africa? Why does the world always look at the US and bitch about the Americans and their guns? Before you all decide to promote taking everyone's weapons aways perhaps you all should do a little studying and research to see what difference gun bans have made around the world. I grieve for those children but gun control is not the answer. The left was recently screaming about US guns because all the deaths in Mexico.. Lo and behold if we didn't find out that it was the leftists in our own government sending US guns to Mexican drug lords to kill US Border Patrol agents... Create a problem and an uproar so that the left's agenda can be steamrolled over the American people is a recurring theme and has to stop right along with school shootings. As always, the best defense is a good offense... Arm the teachers and administrators.

    The real reason for this fake 'Morgan Freeman' post lies hidden in the last few lines "instead of pointing to gun control as the problem".

    This is a cynical and sinister pro gun lobby piece of propaganda, disguised under some blanket truths about media coverage.

    And why do you say that to him? Because you believe that the access to assault weapons should be protected by the 2nd amendment? I find that sad..

    The irony that the killer's name is present, with a link, is astounding.
