My views haven't changed since I basically agree with the author. I agree that guns should be harder to get.

I'm only half-way through the book, thus far my views have not changed. I have always been fairly open-minded on the issue; though I feel that they are hazardous when in the wrong hands.

This book did not change my views on guns. I already agreed with what the author was saying, but it brought up new issues for me to think about. For example, the idea that police have to assume that everyone they come into contact with has a gun which makes them more likely to make rash decisions is something I hadn’t considered. I feel like someone who is strongly pro gun might start to consider new issues while reading this book, but they probably won’t change their overall belief. At the end of the day, this is fiction, and it is dramatized to some extent.

My views remained the same. I still think that there's no way the ownership and use of guns is gonna be stopped any time in the next century, quite possibly until something more advanced and destructive comes along. I'm still of the opinion that certain changes need to be made to the licensing system and laws refined to keep up with these changes, and the selection process for those who are allowed to carry guns more thorough.

My opinion on gun control didnt change but it did make it stronger. Reading stories of shootings, even though they were fictional, made me more aware of what people are capable of and how putting guns in their hands is probably not the best idea.

Actually what I always believe is guns are harmful. So there was nothing left in my mind to be changed regarding the guns. I never dream to own a gun for myself and would like to ask the gun owners to use the guns just for the sake of self defence, but not to kill others.
