The presentation was interesting, good to be inform!
The girls were beautiful with their twins dresses lol .
In my opinion and as Patricia said, American people are crazy so i'm not agree with the fact they own weapons.
Moreover there is too much conditions to own weapons. American people should realize that's not a good idea. I think it's like a temptation and the fact is that humans give in to temptation and even more American people lol
Seriously it will have less people killed if they have no weapons. It's about logic, if they have no weapons, killing people become more dificult, they have to be more innovative, which is not simple when you're psychologically unbalanced (i'm joking, I know it's not a generality)

Hi everyone !

Mass killers and serial killers is a real problem in America, land of "freedom and opportunities".
The gunfire of Columbine is very famous for bad reasons and it shakes the USA when it happens.
There are few reasons who can explained why it is so easy to butcher tens of people in one moment.

The fact that almost everyone could buy a gun increase the chance of gunfire.
If you can't buy a gun, you can only kill with others weapons who do less damages, like knife.
Try to kill 10 people in one hour with a knife, not so easy to realize.
In France, the law is very strict and it's a good thing because we only have few gunfire in our history and these gunfires are mostly in the name of terrorism and not one guy who goes insane in his head.

The banalization of violence is also a reason of this kind of drama.
People and especially kid today see violence everywhere in medias (Movies, Video-games, TV, ...).
And it changes the behaviour of people who are accustomed to this.

At least, I hope that Trump will not liberalize more the sell of guns, because it will cause a lot of damages, especially with the ethnic stress in some states.

Bye !

Good presentation Very Happy , but i think that they have read too much so topic interesting.
Personally , I don't appreciate guns, neither in video games nor in real. If it depended on me would eliminate guns.
For example for war game players (online) i think that is influenced some psychological faculties of these players. To the point of coming to kill really whithout remorse.
This phenomen is frequently in USA so no that there and it is a society problem really to threat.

Interesting topic and Great Presentation. The animation was entertaining (it is always fun with Strawberry Tagada !!!)

The main difference between France and the US is culturally I think. US history has always been around guns which is not the case with France. In the US possessing a gun is for the majority of people to protect themselves. But since anyone can easily have accessed to guns, it can easy lead to a massacre (e.g. Columbine...), which do scare people, who are buying guns to prevent this kind of events... It is a vicious spiral amplified with terrorism.

Topical subject because more and more people question the system of armament of the American population. Quiz allowing to enrich our culture, good one interaction.

Girls have done an intersting presentation. The powerpoint was clear and synthetic. This a very current subject. I think with the american election this point will be even more current.
The massacre of Columbine was tragic. Unfortunetly, It was not an exception, and an recurrent problem. I think this is a difference of culture with the other continents. And it will be difficile to change because weapons and guns are in the daily of Americans.

Hi John,

The girls presented their subject very interesting. The slide show was very well done, there were many informations on a difficult topic. I didn't eat breakfast but I had many Strawberry Tagada, it's perfect ahahahaha !!

For me, the bearing arms must be prohibited in all United States. In this country, there are too many murders especially in school. In some states it's forbidden so there is trafficking in arms and the underground economy. But in other states, it's allowed, it's that the big problem of the United States. But we see that in countries where it's forbidden like France, there are many problems and the traffic is very important. So I don't see solutions... It's very complicated to prohibit hunting in France to avoid weapons because it's cultural and in the history of this country.

US and guns what a story. For them it's like eating, sleeping or breathing. For us it's just terrifing to see pictures of children handling guns or rifles that many of us won't never ever touch. In France we are counscious that living without gun doesn't mean living in the fear.
In USA, to make them give up this right it'll be difficult. First of all cause of the new president who's a kind of fan of guns. But maybe one day a future candidate will be against it and his others ideas will be stronger thant this position to be elected. And after this with the number of guns which will stay, it's gonna be long to make them disappear from the houses. But we must not give up this hope.

Very good presentation girls and an interesting topic. I think that the Americans consider the port of weapons as a necessary asset for their security. It is in their culture, in view of their everyday life, I think it is justified. But only as everywhere in the world where there is delinquency, State justice must punish severely to limit the Slips. In the United States, there is what is called street justice, because for many people to be imprisoned is like passing a driver's license, it is a stage in life.

Maybe the return of the death sentence with Donald Trump To stop the influx of weapons study

Well done!
But i stay on my position: the problems is not the Gun, it is the asccess to health care.

If you have a gun, you have to be crasy to kill somebody!
If you are crasy, your place is at hospital!

thans for your presentation because, your subject is a reality around the world.

Gun control has always been a difficult subject to discuss in the US even though the issue is a concern but still does not make that much fuss in other countries for obvious reasons (common sense). In the US, it is a totally different conversation. There are a lot of aspects to discuss about that like the place of guns in the history of the country, the strenght and power of organizations like the NRA or the importance of the first amendment that can still be used as an excuse to legitimate the use and possession of guns. It is noteworthy that the pressure and influence of the National Riffle Association was at his highest under President Obama who was anti-guns and also that the soon to be invested president Trump has a strong relationship with officials of the weapons lobby.
This topic was well found and developped. There will always be conversations about that and the issue is still to be debated. Thank you guys!

Hi,
Mass killers and serial killers is a real problem in America,
I think that carrying weapons is not really a problem but it is the person who have it that can be dangerous.In the united states we sell weapons to anyone.
The sale could be authorized but it would require a reason for the purchase of a weapon: for example if we are a hunter.It should be checked that the criminal records is empty so that it can avoid some problems and killings.
Some weapons should also not be sold at all (the most dangerous weapons such as submachine guns).
However, even if these rules are applied, it will not prevent some mental deviants from killing many people.
Concerning the presentation, I was sick, but But I imagine the professionalism of girls.

Interesting presentation, the problem is any people can have guns easily and i guess shootings are hardly avoidable if it can come from nowhere or any random guy.
Anyhow, i'm not sure forbidding guns will stop or prevent all the shooting, it won't stop a mad guy if he is determined, as we can see with Anders Breivik in Norway in 2011.

hi everyone

So difficult subject but your presentation was very good, congratulations!!
In my opinion the difference between france and US it's cultural differences. In fact, in columbia for example the export of firearms and ammunition isn't limited by the legal control of transfers, but in france there isn't any transfers!!
In addition it is a vicious spiral amplified with terrorism.

Very interesting subject. In my opinion, that in the United States, makes it that weapons is authorized, and especially that weapons are easily sold is a really serious problem. I does not understand how we can offer a weapon when a person opens a bank account. I think that the regulations should be more important not to allow to put in the hands of everybody, a weapon able to killing.

REALLY GOOD PRESENTATION, of course because they're my friends (and I need them in class because they're smart :p)
Serously, it was a hard job to present this subject because it can be "touchy" to speak about murderer in university especially when you do your prensentation on a university with (crazy) studients.
Thanks girls for your presentation and your really good organisation to wear the same clothes. Even if it wasn't calculated. Great minds think alike.

Very good presentation girls. In addition you were too beautiful. Wink Wink
About the weapon carrying, I am against it, just look at what is happening in the United States to realize how bad the idea is, almost every day there is heard about serious homicide, Hostage-taking, shootings in schools.

I am not interested in seeing the crime rate in countries increase.
