Mass shootings are happening more and more frequently, and we need to do something to put a stop to it. I think it's absolutely crazy to say that this is the price of freedom. Whenever anything like this happens, politicians always say, oh well this is the price of living in a free society. I think that's absolutely ridiculous. There are plenty of free societies in this world that allow people to be free, and at the same time don't allow them easy access to these kinds of weapons. They don't allow easy access to these kind of weapons in European countries, and these kind of shootings happen far less frequently in those countries than in the US. There is simply no reason for people to have these types of weapons. Their only purpose is to kill large numbers of people. There are other types of rifles that can be used for hunting, and one certainly doesn't need a weapon capable of killing a huge number of people to defend one's home. That's absolutely ridiculous. When was the last time someone's home was attacked by 49 people? Never! To the people who say that they need this for their hobby, I say, find another hobby! There are plenty of productive things that someone can do with their life other than killing other living creatures! If you need to kill living beings in order to be happy, then you need to be in a mental hospital! The people who want sensible gun laws are the majority of the people, and we need to keep pushing and pushing until we can get enough people to see reason! I know that eventually we will have sensible gun laws, but before that happens probably thousands of more people will die, and that makes me very sad. Living in a free society should not mean that you have the right to do whatever you want to do. There has to be some limits on human behavior or else our society will descend into chaos!
