Have your say

So another wild west shoot- out in the good old US of A results in another nine deaths, plus God knows how many injured who may never walk or return back to normal.

What do we get in response? A president whose hands are tied by their “constitution”, another candle-lit vigil and more Americans blubbering on our TVs.

Give it a rest, get back home to your cupboard packed with shooters, even buy another on the way home for reassurance and continue in the great American tradition of Wild Bill Hickok, Gunfight at the OK Corral.

That’s 46 mass killings in the last 12 months, pathetic.
