    Obama's announced the gun control measures he wants to try to implement:

    *reintroduce an expired ban on "military-style" assault weapons, such as those used in several recent mass shootings
    *limit ammunition magazines to 10 rounds
    *introduce background checks on all gun sales; currently private sales and some sales at gun shows, constituting about 40% of the national total, are exempt
    *pass a ban on possession and sale of armour-piercing bullets
    *introduce harsher penalties for gun-traffickers, especially unlicensed dealers who buy arms for criminals
    *finally approve the appointment of the head of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
    And apparently a lift of a ban on federal gun violence research (why the hell there was a ban in the first place is baffling, but there we go).

    There was a ban because the NRA got some of its pocket politicians to defund any govt research into the topic. Going so far as to prohibit compiling and releasing numbers for others to study.

    As I'd there might be anything in those numbers which would harm the NRAs 'guns are great' argument.

    Off to Wiki and see how the US system of government is (supposed) to work.

    Ironically, the measures he's proposing on gun control have quite a few on the right bemoaning the new ear of tyrannical monarchy.

    I'd have said get out more / get a clue... but a blog would probably do just fine too.

    There were yellow school buses in the UK when I went to school some 20 years ago. Keep up.

    Given you've never actually tried the alternative... how exactly do you come to a conclusion like that?

    Unless you can travel to alternate universes? OMG, TAKE ME WITH YOU!

    Don't be retarded. How can you possibly state what the world would have ended up like without the US.

    Sure, remove it now and the shit would hit the fan (you could say the same about removing many countries)... but the world would be a very different place if America had never existed.

    John Birmingham wrote an entertaining and very pessimistic trilogy of thrillers about what would happen if you removed the US from the world. One of the more plausible events is that Israel immediately nukes all its nearby enemies so they could no longer be a threat, as they would have devoured an Israel that lacked US support.

    Amazon linky.
