Same old anti-gun formula, different location. Mad-Dog cowardly Killer rampages, Gun-Haters seize the opportunity to dance in the blood of the dead by blaming the tool instead of the criminal; create a false panic to the public (in this case, demonizing "evil semi-automatics") then "save" the same public by vainly attempting to ban a 100+ year old technology in a fit of misguided mass-punishment affecting thousands of sane peaceable individuals defacto blamed for the depredations of one isolated madman. A country that once stood off invasion due to the bravery of their tough, hardy Riflemen now seem to be embracing the ideas of spineless Do-gooding Fools, apparently without a shred of protest. Are there no heroes left there to fight back against tyrants as they did in the 1940's?..(S9)
