    If only there were more people with guns perhaps some lives would have been saved.

    It's a sad state of affairs here in the US when enough people aren't armed when there is an attack.

    If someone simply had a gun or was wearing a suicide vest to take the perpetrators out, other lives could have been saved.

    Lot of xenophobic attitudes towards Americans on this board. Saying every American is a gun nut makes you some kind of anti-gun hero, say Islam is a religion of violence and you are a racist. I get the sarcasm but I think it's distasteful and disrespectful to those who died. They were celebrating one moment and murdered the next. It's a tragedy.

    What is better? Terrorists killing because of religion who are 150% army-ish and a country that is 10-30% army-ish, or terrorists that are 150% army-ish and a country that is 0% army-ish?

    Part of the think is mutual assured destruction. A group of terrorist running into a Christmas party where 10% may be carrying guns - may think twice about starting to shoot. Of course there is the suicide part, but may only a few would have been killed before the terrorist were killed.

    It is a practical measure. Give the option, I would rather be standing next to the guy that was armed.

    The reality is if it even were possible to ban guns altogether in America this will equate to less gun deaths. In the case of terrorism and deranged rampage killers would it relate to less deaths in general? No one could say. There is no guarantee. It could be less deaths the same or more. Why more? Think of two of the most deadly attacks in America Oklahoma City 168 dead rental van and fertilizer, 9/11 2977 dead because of box cutters. Taking guns doesn't remove the nut jobs or their blood lust. Just a tool. Consider Paris as well, all their gun laws did little to stop them from coming over the boarder. If guns were banned in California does anyone realize how close San Bernardino is to mexico? They could have got them either way. Gun availability in America which is already in the 100's of thousands is an open Pandora's box. California is one of the leaders in America for gun restrictions. Contray to what was said here they don't come in cereal boxes. Please respect those who died at the hand of terrorists. Paris is attacked and everyone changes their pictures to French flags. America is attacked and everyone starts complaining about the country attacked. Get the priorities straight.

    freemindfade, you are correct on this. Unfortunately, Western Europeans are looking into USA through left-wing liberal opinion where they think that banning guns will suddenly make crime goes away and it will decrease violence. At the same time they will fail to see own problems like Breivik in Norway, Paris, etc. Even if the guns are banned, there are millions of guns in the country which will take decades to remove from the society.

    Considering the most nationalistic and xenophobic country on this planet is the USofA, that's a bit ironic, if it's true.
