Why isn't dozens of our children being murdered with guns in their classrooms as important as murders in France?

@Rickoshay75,
It's not less important, it's just that France doesn't have the equivalent of the NRA. No one in France is arguing that if the Satirical Magazine cartoonists had been armed the terrorists would have not attacked.

If the heads of every country had to travel to the US for every senseless massacre perpetrated in the US, they would never get back to their own countries.

God you're an idiot. Do you not recall the horror and outrage at the school massacre? You really are about as stupid as a box of rocks.

That does not explain why we did not have 1o million people out marching the streets in solidarity and protest after Newton. The NRA does not have the power to prevent people from marching. To the extent that the NRA is able to convince people to not march speaks to the power of the ideas that they use, not the power of the NRA.

I am not shocked that this is too difficult of a concept for you.

Newton is not rare. Workplace and school shootings are common enough here that people just shake their heads and carry on. This website tracked 274 in 2014.

What? Huh? Wtf are you talking about? who says that "children being murdered with guns" isn't important or isn't considered important? Do you have even a tenuous grasp on reality?

@Rickoshay75,
I don't think it is the fact that one is more important or one is more tragic than the other -- it is the murder in France was a terrorist attack and an attack on the freedom of the press. The murder of the children was an attack by an insane person.

I think the walks and such are showing support of the fight against terrorism and the support of the freedom of the press/freedom of speach.

And there was alot of support for the children as well -- just shown differently.
