    I think America really needs to focus on reviewing and managing it's gun laws.....

    Rather than Trump's ban on immigration from 7 Muslim countries.

    Hey, it's the toddlers who don't have guns that are the problem. We need to arm all toddlers so that people can protect themselves from the bad ones.

    Can't see the gun laws changing with a mad man like Trump as president.

    Guns don't kill people. Toddlers kill people. Is it time for a ban on toddlers? IMO, yes. Not all toddlers are going to shoot people, but we can't really take chances.

    The fact is Islamic terrorism in the US isn't a problem. Shouting "Allahu-Akbar" after you've killed someone is equal to a white American shooting another white American in some backwater town. For the latter, it's explained away as senseless violence, but the former is treated as if it's some massive religious death cult movement looking to destroy Western civilisation. The media has a way of inflating issues, and people are gullible and will believe anything that will support their world-view.

    Obama already tried and failed. Trump isn't going to make a difference.

    Guns will never be removed from the USA. Far too entrenched in their culture, enshrined in the constitution, with the NRA being one of the most powerful lobbyists.

    If there wasn't much change after the death of 20 kids following the Sandy Hook shooting, then I can't exactly see much changing at all now.

    They'll never get rid of guns.

    America will never ban guns, but it doesn't matter. With Trump at its helm, America is hurtling down to the scrapheap and picking up speed!!

    There's also the fact that there's over 300 million guns in the country.

    Even if you banned the sale of them, getting all of them would be impossible.

    Right but the toddlers are only killing because of america's *****y gun laws, not because toddlers alone are dangerous for being toddlers. Americans have developed a reasonable worry with Islam and some of those who practice it.

    Banning guns doesn't reduce the murder rate it didn't in the uk, Ireland or Australia why would it work in the USA?

    Very true.
    On average, a small handful of people are murdered in the US every year by Islamist terrorism.
    On average, around 10,000 people are murdered in the US every year by guns.

    Perhaps America needs to re-evaluate its priorities?

    Do you think banning guns reduces the murder rate?
