Did Parliament Shooting Change Canada’s Gun Control Debate?
[The same is true in the U.S.
So why do some people still advocate for more gun control? I can only think of the following possible reasons:
- Evil intent
- Power (this could be considered a special case of evil intent)
- Attention and/or fame
- Peer acceptance
- Mental issues
Or some combination of the above.—Joe]
