"“Be Aware & Armed, CARRY YOUR GUN.” She later threatened to fly to Paris and shoot Syrian refugees “in the head”."

If it was a Moslem that was saying that, we'd say that they were radicalised...

"She later threatened to fly to Paris and shoot Syrian refugees “in the head”."

When was the last time an American went to France and shot someone. I don't have the answer to that, but I suspect, plenty of American's were in Europe, and elsewhere, during WW2, doing exactly that.

"....plenty of American's were in Europe, and elsewhere, during WW2, doing exactly that."

And a good job too. We would have been in very dire trouble without help from American troops in World War II.

criminals carry guns households carry guns to protect themselves from the criminals with guns.America is awash with guns. NRA all powerful lobby group love their guns.If several mass murders are not enough to change that attitude the vicious circle will just revolve seems strange to us but not Americans.who are we to judge

You only need to do a simple Google search, to see how many homicides take place in any major city, in the USA on a daily basis. So the odd massacre here or there isn't going to make much difference to the way some American's think.

Just fancy that happening here in the UK, and how the public would react, that the government was not doing enough, in protecting its people!.

The problem is, like I said earlier, its a knee jerk reaction based on speed, with very little consultation.

My last paragraph at 10.24AM applied to the UK.
