The Economist has called for “drastic gun control” in the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy, saying that the Constitution should be amended to ban all guns on a national scale.

In a brazen editorial published on its website this past weekend, the Bilderberg endorsed outlet notes “If America is ever to confront its obsession with guns, that time is now.”

The piece compares Adam Lanza’s rampage in Newtown to an incident in China, where a deranged maniac recently attacked a classroom of children with a knife. Because firearms are banned in the Communist state, none of the children were killed. ” Every country has its madmen” argues the editorial, intimating that living under a tyrannical government regime is preferable because your children are safer.

The article also compares US murder rates to those of Britain and Germany, contending that more guns equates to more homicides. ” America’s murder rate is four times higher than Britain’s” the editorial suggests, without noting that the population of the US is approximately six times larger than that of Britain, and that when firearms were banned in the UK, gun crime exploded.

The piece then calls for the reinstatement of the assault rifle ban and an end to “gun-show exemption” from background checks, before outright calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment.

“If you want to be safer, change the constitution” the editorial suggests, in a remark that would have Benjamin Franklin spinning. “The great bulk of America’s murders are committed with ‘ordinary’ handguns,” the piece adds, arguing that gun control legislation needs to become all encompassing.

“Handgun bans, such as those that operated in Chicago and Washington, DC, before the Supreme Court struck them down, would be needed on a national scale.” the piece continues.

“Gun licences, obtainable only after extensive police and medical review as in most other civilised countries, would be needed for hunting and sporting weapons.” the editorial adds, outlining a plan for full scale disarmament of the American people.

“Tough police action, coupled with an extensive “buy-back” programme, would be needed to mop up the hundreds of millions of guns that are already held.” the piece adds, ridiculously comparing taking guns away from Americans to sweeping some sort of unsightly mess under the rug.
