Does anyone else think guns should be outlawed?
Before jumping the gun (pun intended) and saying no, keep in mind that:
a) the Sandy Hook massacre probably wouldn’t have been commited if guns were outlawed. (The shooter stole the gun from his mom who owned them legally, therefore giving him easy access to it) and
b) you hardly ever (if ever) hear about a good Samaritan stopping a mass murder (use Sandy Hook for example). The murderer usually kills themselves (Columbine, V-Tech, Sandy Hook, all of which wouldn’t have had access to guns if they were illegal) or the police stops or kills the killer and
c) while owning a gun could make you feel more safe, it could also make you more of a target by a criminal who wants a gun.
While most peopl say, “If you outlaw guns only outlaws will have guns,” I like to think of it more like this; “If you oultaw guns, less outlaws will have guns.”
