American attitude to guns


With reference to the horrendous tragedy in Sandy Hook, the question is when willl the USA turn its back on guns. This is another in a long line of dreadful tragedies, but will America mourn and then allow the issue to simply slip out of view as other news replaces it.
Or will Obama and his administration really try to do something to reign in the gun culture, in fact can he actually do anything, even if he wants to? I have heard the killer described as evil, but when we allow this type of description to be used we allow society, of which he was a product, to skip its responsibilty for what it spawned.

I have visited America on a number of occassions aand found the people wonderful. I sincerely hope there is someone, or some organisation that can begin to really eradicate this self-destructive gun culture.
