"The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." - Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776
Even our trained military and police aren't that proficient in a stressful situation. Why make Americans less able to defend themselves because bad people break the law.

When I was 15 in Kirkwood,mom friend sitting next to me was shot close range in the head by his best friend . The gun was left there by an adult who said it wasn't loaded. The victims brains and blood covered my face and head. I have suffered with panic attacks my whole life. There are Far too many guns floating around unsecured. It is insane and Medieval. We can be a better country.
We need to protect children and other citizens from domestic terrorists!
Too many innocent lives have been lost and will continue to be lost without stricter gun laws. Gun incidents to date don't just represent a slap in the face to grieving relatives but much worse; we live among evil humans who value money over human life.
