  • "The murder of children certainly matters to ME and Aussies with any kind of human decency and compassion", typical of this jerk, me me me me me in his mind he only thinks that he is the only one here with a compassionate bone. No Australians or no one here have have lacked human decency or compassion. Typical of a controlling idiot Andy just can't help yourself can you. You are the only obnoxious moron here.

  • Perhaps if the adults slaughtered in this crazyness had been packing thier own defence then maybe instead of being a hopeless victim and unable to protect the children, they may have been in a better position to be able to stop the killing before it started.

  • A little known statistic is that the US ranks 18th in the world gun related homicides but number 1 in gun related suicides.

  • The murder of children certainly matters to ME and Aussies with any kind of human decency and compassion, doesn't matter where it happens. Only a totally obnoxious moron would think otherwise... Let's hope the US finally bans the possession of assault rifles etc. Surely only the army and police need that kind of firepower.

  • The ONLY solution is truth. Gillard recently attacked the tobacco companies and was commended. Shortly after it was revealed she had billions of Australian public dollars invested in tobacco. That may not be criminal misrepresentation but it is certainly pushing the boundaries. How many media companies and representatives have publically declared who the primary shareholders of the gun companies are. Or the tobacco companies. The psychological influence of Hollywood and the media has a profound ability to change public sentiment. That is scientifically proven and beyond debate. That is the basis by which interrogation and advertising works. Keep telling anyone the sky is purple long enough and it penetrated their subconscious and they believe it. No other media facility reaches more people than Hollywood. America has its entire economy and future tied up in military assets. The only way to stay financially afloat is to utilise that asset. A worldwide sentiment of doom and gloom accompanied with a dramatically increased collective propensity and acceptance of violence is a little too convenient. The primary shareholders of the arms companies are the same party that is the primary shareholders of the tobacco companies and Hollywood and the media. We all know it is the banks yet not a single word is ever published in THEIR media facilities. In their home country of Switzerland where they store trillions in gold underground servicemen and ex servicemen take home fully automatic weapons and bulk ammunition as part of the national defence plan to protect their primary industry. Switzerland also has one of the most severe levels of control over media and movie violence. The problem can be solved but only with truth. Follow the money. Expose the party making the most money and exerting the most influence.
