More than 40 postal workers have been gunned down in this way.  So the thing to remember here is that, " Going postal", has nothing to do with going to the post office to mail a letter.

As many of you know, America is a gun culture.  There are at least 310 million "registered" guns in the United States.  This means there are more guns than people.  These are legal weapons (firearms).  However, some experts blieve that there are three times that number of unregistered pistols, rifles, shotguns, or semi-automatic weapons, such as the type used to shoot down the schoolkids in Conneticut last December.                                  (V.C)
