So gang bangers will stop gang banging? Terrorists will stop terrorizing? look at the logic in your statement. The Columbine kids had money, but they were made fun of, how would you stop people making fun of each other?
Yet we still teach our kids about WW1 and WW2. How many people died and how evil this nation was and how evil this nation is. A horrible mess of fear? Yes but you can't be calm and stable when someone is threatening to blow up a few schools, if your child is in that school would you not be angry? or would you just say Oh well.
Gang bangers will be gang bangers, no matter where you put them. I do not want a gun, but if I had a kid I do not want a gun stuck in their face. Guns can be purchased easily and illegally, or it can be purchased easily and legally. Either way a ban on guns would mean the people who owned legal guns would disown them, yet the people who own the guns illegally would keep them.
Yes that is much safer for us.
