Comment from a reader on the post: Maguindanao massacre was caused in part by poor gun control in Mindanao
Huh? Poor gun control caused the Maguindanao massacre? Heavily armed victims would have been the only thing that would have prevented that massacre. Indiscriminate shooting in malls. Is that political? Shooting a bus load of Chinese tourists. Political also? Gun control didn't seem to work very well in those cases did it? The only reason more crooks don't have guns in the Philippines is economics, not because of gun control. They just can't afford to buy one. The USA has a population of 312 million people. Some of them murder each other too. A society that breeds nut cases that hurt children is the real issue that needs to be addressed.
