I am neither pro or anti gun. People want to blame a tool for how people use it. The problem is not the tool, but the poor attitude and lack of respect and empathy for someone else's life, liberty and property. That said, if you remove guns from the equation then the people without the will power and respect for life, liberty and property would have a more difficult time performing their cowardly acts. Several other countries in the world have large percentages of their populations that own guns, but a fraction of the gun violence. So again, it's not the tool. It's the fool with the tool.
