I have to speak up on this phrase because it is being overly used; “Guns dont kill people, people kill people” is like saying Drugs dont get people high, people using drugs get people high. The bottom line, the sole purpose for a guns existence is to hurt and harm another living being. Now, I’m not saying that guns dont serve a necessary purpose in our society for protection, police, service men….But John Doe, who’s angry about the smallest thing; a ticking time bomb, should not have access to these weapons. I honestly think mandatory mental health testing during high school should be started, but kept private so parents can start working with their children. When the privilege (not God given right) to bear arms hinders and/or threatens peace/humanity, then yes, Gun control should be reinforced. Mentally ill or not, many “sane” people snap, and their weapon of choice is a gun. Guns easily take out more people than knives. One at least has a fighting chance of survival in a knife fight.
