Gullible and stupid are those who just react emotionally, "feeling" that laws will regulate insanity. Tragic that people die each year as a direct result of teaching people that firearms are the problem.
Reading these articles reminded me that the .22LR is a dangerous little round. Lots of people who were just as dead from a .22 as if they had been shot by a .45ACP hollowpoint. I've been shopping for a BUG and a .22LR is on my list. High cap and fairly dangerous.
