Dumb Americans And Their Guns

The Daily Show Once again those crazy Americans and their love for guns has made for good cannon fodder (excuse the pun) for The Daily Show team when one gun nut and his idiotic logic made for hilarious viewing. Gun control is once again a hot topic in the United States, after 2012 seemed to be rife with mass shootings. Very recently, a bill failed to pass in the U.S. senate, which would have allowed for mandatory ‘deeper’ background checks. Correspondent John Oliver made a trip down under to interview former Prime Minister, John Howard and to find out how Australia managed to bring in laws to combat their history of mass shootings and gun related crime…..because of course, gun control as a concept would NEVER work…..at least not in America. It never ceases to amaze me why Americans are so attached to need, this right, to own and brandish a gun. Rather than setting about laws to prevent people owning a gun, why not attack it from a different angle and regulate the sale of ammunition. In the US, ammunition can be bought over the counter in grocery stores for fucksake! It might be the same deal in Canada, I don’t know. But you don’t hear Canadians going on and on about how their founding fathers made the country what it is with the help of a gun, not do you hear them spouting off about rights enshrined in a constitutional amendment!
