I believe that outlawing guns might be the first step to removing them from everyone's hands, including those of criminals. More importantly, I believe that arguing for more guns as a solution to violent crime is absurd; this man was clearly not right in the head, and the possibility of dying would not have stopped him from committing this crime. You have a point when it comes to property crime, but in this cowboy nation of ours, more guns means more killings, not less. We already see guns as power, and the more we advocate them as a solution to our problems, the more power they gain in our eyes, and that power will not always be used to keep the peace.
Right, and every other day, when the teacher says, "Pop quiz!" they all pull out their guns and say . . . not so much.Quote by: underbear1
Or, on a less facetious note, every time a kid starts a fight, he can do it with lead instead of his fists. I had one of my students turn to another during class yesterday and say out loud, "Why don't you go f#ck your sister?" I have no doubt that those two kids got into a fistfight at some point later in the day, or if they haven't yet, they will; what are the chances that a situation like that could lead to gunplay, if every student was locked and loaded?
