This recent massacre at Virginia Tech reminds me of Australia's Port Arthur massacre.
That event was pivotal in reforming Australia's gun laws.
I wonder what it will take for similar action in the United States? One would argue it's a bigger deal, because Australia doesn't have a constitutional right to being armed, so presumably it's a bigger deal to override/amend in the US.
Still, at some point, something's got to change... This madness can't keep happening.
