I've only just heard about the shooting involving the US congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, in which a number of people have been killed. I'm shocked and saddened.
You Americans have too many guns! The more guns that are owned by private citizens, the less safe everyone is. I hope that one day my friends in the US will have a leader who is able to take decisive action to reduce gun ownership, as was done in Australia in the 1996, in response to a massacre in Tasmania.
