looked on them and people simply say that American were a violent nation and thats the truth is.

hunting and other purposes and some people had a power and its okay for them to use guns.

are killed and died. Its not only once happened the gun shooting in America and this was a
level of violence compare to the level of violence in different country. I think that the violence in
America will never stop as long as theres guns in the public and its wisely accessible by
anywhere and anytime. People in America are they get use it using guns and its too hard to stop

those crazy people.
