    It kind of is - they're insane gun addicts. Might stem from their utter inability to trust their government for whatever reason.

    Until they stop selling guns and rifles along side the fruit and veg while you're out doing a big shop in Walmart, it's never going to stop .

    President Trump has said the gunmen are "very seriously mentally ill".

    That's an unusual take, perhaps the guy they arrested can use that as his defence.

    Trump also said: "Hate has no place in our country", do you think he's being coached?

    251 mass shootings in the USA this year so far, it absolutely beggars belief.

    It's been said time and time again over the last few years, but when things didn't change after the Sandy Hook incident it showed that they never would.

    Their Constitution gives their citizens the right to guns (bear arms?).
    Can't see that ever changing, unless someone with balls starts a campaign to change that part of the Constitution.
    There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief

    The right to bear arms...but as Michael Moore asked in Bowling for Columbine: "Does that include nuclear arms?"!

    President Trump looked utterly impotent talking to the media today.

    "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

    That's the actual wording of the 2nd amendment in the US constitution. That was over 200 years ago when the framers of the constitution had no conception of what the world would look like today, so applying their words to what Americans can lay their hands on in 2019 is quite frankly ridiculous.

    And, by the way, this is the text of the 18th amendment to the constitution:

    "Section 1. After one year from the ratification of this article the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors within, the importation thereof into, or the exportation thereof from the United States and all the territory subject to the jurisdiction thereof for beverage purposes is hereby prohibited.

    Section 2. The Congress and the several States shall have concurrent power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

    Section 3. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of the several States, as provided in the Constitution, within seven years from the date of the submission hereof to the States by the Congress."


    That one lasted from 1920 to 1933, so the argument that the constitution can't be changed is utter bullshit, it's only money that talks over there.

    I'm watching some live local news reporting from Philadelphia where 6 police officers have been shot during a narcotics raid.

    Trump is trying to buy Greenland now

    BBC News - Greenland: Trump warned that island cannot be bought from Denmark
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-49367792

    Will that be the 51st state, or is that already taken?

    The UK is the 51st state, or didn't you see the film?
    Maybe the USA should try buying The Falklands, or Gibraltar
