Guns are not the problem, people are the problem. Take away the guns, which is never going to happen, but imagine if all guns were removed those problematic people would still be killing other people. I would even be willing to suggest that the death rates wouldn't be that much different. People who wish to kill themselves will find a way. People who wish to kill others will find a way. We really should quit distracting ourselves with these silly pro-gun/anti-gun arguments and start looking at the cause and not the symptom. Values. Some cultures and subcultures lack sustaining values and naturally blame others for their problems. Change the values and guns become insignificant.
