CT shooting and political reactions: an Italian perspective

Hi there,

I'm an Italian guns owner, enthusiast and an administrator of the local shooting range.
Also here the newspaper shouted loud against guns after CT shooting, underlying how crazy Americans are. They also says that Obama "the Great" is now going to stop everything.
No one says about the mental illness of that guy and why he wasn't treated properly.
No one says Obama is going to take an absurd ban against assault rifles just to feed up newspapers, when people could be killed with a knife, a car or in many different ways. No one remembers the handguns ban in UK and the statistics about the crime and armed violence after that...
I'm spreading the truth against disinformation also here. You're not alone.

    Ciao Jabella

    I lived in San Vito dei Normanni for 2 years. Loved the countryside, the food and wine. Thanks for supporting our efforts in Italia.

    It's a source of great pride for me, that when my name is googled, one finds book titles and not mug shots. Daniel C. Chamberlain

    Ciao, paisano! From a 2nd generation Italian-American gun owner.

    Thanks for your support.
    There's no such thing as having too much ammo, unless you're on fire or trying to swim!

    Hi, and welcome! It's good to hear that a few voices of reason are still out there. You might want to remind the people who condemn us that thousands of "crazy Americans" traveled halfway around the world and bled and died to save them from great leaders like Benito Mussolini. I'm sure he would approve of Obama's tactics. How soon people forget!

    You're so right... The same people forget Berlusconi so now he's going to participate to elections again.
    I'm still convince you live in the land of the freedom (compared to here) and this privilege must be preserved.
    By the way, I didn't expect a so warm welcome from you all! Thank you! Grazie!
    Ciao

    Welcome to the forum! It is good to see other people who think like most of us do, but in other countries.

    Welcome jabella, and thanks for your support! Some of my fondest memories are of the time I spent in Italy in the '60's, courtesy of the USMC.
