I will agree that killing with guns is easier, however I personally am not put off on the idea of killing with any number of things. Being that I believe I am a sane reasonable person I have to assume that there are any number of individuals out there who feel the same, sane or otherwise.

I'm sure most other murderous nut jobs think they're sane, and its the rest of the world that's crazy.

Looks like you'll need to start arming firemen too, can't just give guns to teachers.

The shooter; a 61 year old mentally disturbed ex con who couldn't legally own a firearm.

The firearm he used; and 20 year old revolver owned by his sister (who lived with him). It was a .38 caliber that holds five rounds.

He also used bushmaster, I thought?



It is well-established statistics, that, rather than increase your safety, owning a gun makes you and/or your family members more likely to die or get injured in a gun-related incident.

Case in point-- Adam Lonza's mother (who owned her guns completely legally), was killed from the gun that she owned, her son, and 26 innocent people died in the bargain.

The link above also fits the same pattern.

I agree. I can't know how much it would have helped but it's too bad that people don't seem to lock up their firearms anymore.

Edit to add:

I know it's being nit picky but that data you're referring to says that owning a handgun makes you and/or your family members more likely to die or get injured in a gun-related incident.
