I agree with you 100 percent
Me too, a gun must be under control of someone who can manage well. Sad to say, today almost everyone who likes gun can have it.

Guns are not the only answer, but they are also not the only problem. I believe that the human heart is where violence starts. Regardless of what laws are passed, our society will be plagued with violence until we learn to address the pain and hopelessness that is behind it.

I remain close-minded on this one. I imagine if everyone thinks a gun could be the answer; any slight misunderstanding could get the wildly tempered shooting everyone. But if it was out of sight, it would have been out of mind as well. Let's always remember the most peaceful ways of solving anything.

I don’t think guns are the only answer, but they are sometimes necessary for protection. Obviously owning a gun is a huge responsibility and should be taken on accordingly.

I don't think that guns is the only answer to defend yourself. There are a lot of ways to defend or protect ourselves. Learning martial arts, boxing, jujitsu and other self defense lessons. There's also weapon that can be used instead of a gun. By being prepared, alert, vigilant and self awareness can be useful in critical time.

I feel like a gun in many situations just causes more problems. Just like in the book at the NRA meeting, it creates a domino effect and in the end, more people end up hurt.

Guns are not always the answer, but with appropriate restrictions and instruction for owners they should be fine to keep as protection.

For me, gun is the only answer when it comes to self defence and defending my family and friends. It is just ideal to think that we may have another way out.

I don't think guns are the answer and I think the author did a lot of good explaining that. He even had the police officer in the book explain that if you are going to own a gun, you need to be ready to shoot a person.

I believe a gun works in self-defense cases. But in the story, people were using guns to seek revenge before they died. In that case, that isn't self-defense and that was them taking the laws into their own hands knowing that there would be no consequences to them. I would protect my family by shooting an intruder. If someone doesn't belong in my home, they get whatever happens to them out of their own stupidity.

You can't bring a knife to a gun fight. The others have guns, so you must be able to defend against them if your life is in danger. There are some other ways they just are not always enough.

It is worth noting that guns are unidirectional can only inflict damage in the direction the barrel is pointed at the time of fire. A bladed weapon, however, is more versatile as you can damage by swiping side-to-side or up-and-down. If we're talking self-defense, a home is a little more close-quarters than say out on the street. If you have a gun, that means it's stored somewhere out of reach, and if someone breaks into your home, you may or may not have time to go and fish it out.

Guns are not for everyone. If you feel uncomfortable having a gun then you shouldn't run out and get one. There are several options for self-protection available for those who do not want to own or use a gun.

I think the first defense to defend ourselves is martial arts, not weapons, after that the government is serious about minimizing crime in the country, the more weapons in circulation the greater the occurrence of crime, the law must be upheld properly and discipline, law it must be fair, not to see who is the culprit.

I think that guns are not the only answer. The second amendment does allow the right to own them but there should be restrictions and checks for who can own them or else they will be used for illegal actions.
