The fact is, your country seems to have more mass murders with firearms than other countries have with other weapon types. We don't have people going out and beating a dozen people to death with a golf club.

I've heard said that the Sandy Bay shooter could have done as much damage with a baseball as he did with a gun. I'm calling bullsh!t on that one. Killing two dozen people with a club would take the staying power of an Olympic athlete. Most people wouldn't have the physical stamina to do it, especially when people started fighting back.
