    This has been suggested by some people for the last decade or so.

    A link to this "Lipstick, iPhone and a gun" ad showed up while reading about primary results in the US.

    Oh Saturday Night Live was already on this in the 1970's- America! Show us your guns! (not all that far from the truth) Apologize for crappy video quality- it's pretty short:

    After the Port Arthur murder that left 23 dead it took the Australian government 12 days to change their gun laws - 12 days!

    In the UK it was Dunblane. For most countries it is once ever, for the USA once a day is tolerable.

    So, yeah, time to once again trot out the Jim Jefferies gun control routine for anyone who hasn't yet seen it:

    Hungerford was bad enough, but didn’t involve kids (apart from being made orphans)

    For Dunblane, my daughter was the age of those little red-headed kids who all looked like her...her Scottish-born teacher was pretty freaked-out after it happened...

    On CNN they were saying AR15 bullets were uaed which will have totally destroyed the little bodies leaving them unidentifiable. Poor, poor parents I just can't imagine their grief upon grief. Sold legally to an 18 year old. A very sick society. Managed 30 seconds of FOX news before "gun laws would not stop this"
