Thanks for those posts Alfie. Great cartoon.

Maybe arming teachers makes sense if you think about it for 2 seconds  :(

But, surely, any crazy shooter will just 'take out' the teacher as first target.

It's all carp ! Some sensible moves to gun control would be a better idea IMO.

A classic scene from Woody Allen's second full-length film: "Bananas" (1971). Relevant to this topic from 00:12 to 00:15.

The Newsreader announces . . . ''and the National Rifle Association calls 'death' a good thing''.  ;)  Well it's Woody Allen and quite a funny clip in his style.

What a shame that such brilliant film makers such as Woody Allen and Harvey Weinstein appear to be in disgrace in various ways

Thanks Anton.

"Point blank madness: Shockingly, there are more guns in the U.S. than people. And as a new book illustrates, some firearms enthusiasts have entire arsenals, writes TOM LEONARD
America's baffling - but lethal - love affair with guns continues to go from strength to strength
Figures show people are buying guns in record numbers with 2020 deadliest gun violence year in decades
British police report growing number of firearms bought legally in US are finding their way illegally to the UK
By TOM LEONARD FOR THE DAILY MAIL

America's baffling but lethal love affair with guns goes from strength to strength. New figures show 2020 was the deadliest gun violence year in decades. At the same time, Americans are buying guns in record numbers, while Texas lawmakers this week became the latest to vote to allow people to carry handguns without either a licence, background check or any training.

The British response is traditionally to sigh in weary bewilderment and just be glad that such a terrifying arms race doesn't exist in the UK. And yet there's reason to be alarmed. British police report that a growing number of firearms bought legally in U.S. gun shops are finding their way illegally to the UK, where they are being used by criminals who remove their serial numbers to make tracing them far harder. Between 2017 and 2020 nearly 900 illegal weapons seized in Britain originated in the U.S., and officials fear that gangs can increasingly turn from knives to guns
