That’s it! You really grabbed that one out of the bag with some excellent deduction.

VillageIdiot takes the laurels. You can now start a new game if you wish.

Re: More American children murdered by gun-toting lunatic

Those are "real dead people", rather than the potential dead people you are speculating about. They really died, thanks to America's gun love.

Re: More American children murdered by gun-toting lunatic

Because otherwise, how about explaining, to the relatives of the over 150 children shot and killed in American schools since 2010, about how America's gun culture made their dead children safer?

Re: More American children murdered by gun-toting lunatic

Yes, but "it would be difficult and take time" is not a great argument for inaction, when the problem you're trying to solve is the mass murder of innocent people . It depends on the the difficulties are and how long the time will be. If we are looking at many years during which you have disarmed t...

Re: Twenty Questions - Character Edition - Game #2

Oh, this is a long shot, but is it Clyde Shelton, as played by Gerard Butler in the film "Law Abiding Citizen". He's a white American man, a fictional character, portrayed as something of an anti-hero, who kills people and then dies a violent death, and who is not involved in organised crime, and th...

Re: More American children murdered by gun-toting lunatic

Why did you decide to obtain a gun in the first place? Why do you need one? What do you use it for? Grew up with guns and in high school I did competitive sporting clays (think skeet shooting or trap shooting - flying clay targets), plus I was into history and own several historical rifles from the...

Re: More American children murdered by gun-toting lunatic

Random fact:

In Texas there are laws regulating how many sex toys it's legal to own.
But you can have as many assault rifles as you want.

Re: More American children murdered by gun-toting lunatic

Thank you for that input Chaqa. It's interesting to see your perspectives as a resident of that strange land. I do have a few questions / queries / comments: I'm always torn on this because I'm both very sympathetic to the people who want to change the gun laws (and I think there's miles of progress...

I should probably clarify at this point that I think American gun laws are ridiculous.
I think this is the key point.

Re: More American children murdered by gun-toting lunatic

26 years ago a gunman entered Dunblane Primary school in Scotland and shot 16 children. The UK responded by massively tightening its gun laws (which were already stronger than in the USA). In the 26 years that have followed, 0 further school shootings have taken place, resulting in a total of 0 deat...
