BBC Radio Scotland - Thought for the Day
by Dr. Amanullah De Sondy
Assistant Professor in Islamic Studies, University of Miami, FL.
Scotland’s tennis hero, Andy Murray, has sent a message to the families of the 26 people shot dead in the Sandy Hook school atrocity in the USA. The US open champion had been reflecting and sympathising given his own experiences in his hometown of Dunblane and the tragedy there. Americans have been united in grief and condemnation of this incident that has left many seeking further gun control. The way in which Americans are able to acquire guns has always puzzled me.
