Two views of USA gun deaths - one from England and one from Canada

The shocking deaths of college students and one college professor in Oregon has touched off a spate of commentaries. I found that these, one from England, and one from Canada, wrestled deeply with the main issues involved.

President Obama refuses to go along with the "normality" of it all and we could all see the visible anger showing through, on his face and in his demeanour. He has stated that since 2001, more than 150,000 persons died from gun shots, compared to the slightly more than 3,000 caused by Islamic extremism, or terrorism in the same period of time.

In 2015 alone, more than 250 school / college / university incidents have taken place in which guns caused unnecessary deaths.
