Change is needed

Pro-gun or Anti-gun doesn’t matter, this kind of tragedy should not be allowed to happen:

BBC News- Death at show fuels US gun debate

Boston Globe – Boy, 8, shot to death with Uzi at gun show

America doesn’t need a kneejerk reaction like Tony Blair’s gun restrictions but it really is time for a change across the US.  Does anybody really think that an 8 year old needs to be allowed to free-fire an automatic weapon?  IS there any valid reason to have an Uzi except in a paramilitary role?  It isn’t a hunting weapon, it is designed for the sole purpose of killing people in a fairly indiscriminate (short barrel, high rate of fire) way.
