10. Guns are not the problem

 

The guns aren't the problem, it's that bad people use them. Bad people who intend on killing will accomplish their goal by any means necessary. A gun is typically the first thing that is thought of when you intend to kill, but lots of things can be used including vehicles. Banning guns or types of guns isn't going to solve anything. Having good people like us with guns is a better idea. I guarantee you if one of the teachers had a concealed weapon while at that school shooting, they could of either completely prevented killings or greatly reduced the number of innocent deaths. The more good people that are armed, the better. There is no 100% way to prevent criminals from using weapons or other methods of killing, but increasing the number of good people with a gun and some basic training on how to defend themselves and others will help the most.
