Definitely not. People say guns equal death and destruction, but apparently they fail to realize that death and destruction have been around long
before firearms. It is not the firearms that are the cause, and someone who wants to kill will find a way to do it. Most countries only exist because
of firearms. Without them the world would be different, but it would definitely not be a better place.
Many apparently fail to realize that guns can mean peace. There are many bad ways guns can be put to use, but good ways as well, or rather, with good
intentions, for a good cause. It is exactly because it's within human nature for some people to do bad things that the good guys need firearms. Our
2nd amendment right here in the US is strictly about preserving freedom, as that is precisely why the Founding Fathers claimed they included the
right. And it makes sense. When there are people who are willing to take advantage of other people, especially rulers over the common people, firearms
serve as an "equalizer" for justice. If human nature were different, guns wouldn't be needed, but this isn't the case.
