Damn, I don't want to get into another gun debate. Nor another rural vs. city, red vs. blue, one side vs. the other side, whatever vs. whatever debate.

Something would be better than nothing, and would be a place to start. Anything would help.

One more note....

No one has ever said that guns kill people all by themselves. Obviously, people kill people. Sometimes, some guns make it easy for them to kill more.
