I repeat; that horse left the barn decades ago. I'm not a gun grabber per-se as I think any effort mean't to remove all those firearms from licensed owners would result in out and out war in your streets.

That's the very ethic I've been addressing from the beginning. The thought process that has inundated your thinking to the extent your guns are more important to you than your other civil liberties.

I do not understand what we should have done differently (related to firearms....there are many other things that America could/should have done differently, but that is another discussion)

Better background check programs?? Yes, I'll give you that...

You need to accept that America is a more violent society than Canada, legal firearms or not and its real ills are outside of the gun ownership realm.
