The Northern Illinois Shootings, And The Guns

Among the news stories about the mass murderer's arsenal used to mow down students at Northern Illinois University was this troubling line:

"All four guns were bought legally from a federally licensed firearms dealer, said Thomas Ahern, an agency spokesman."

I'd say that's clear and convincing evidence that guns are just too damn available - - which is the main reason we have an annual murder-by-gun total in the US each year in the thousands, whereas in most countries around the world, similar murders are rare.
