    Was it before or after the shooter started killing people?

    I remember a killing in a school… Is a teacher supposed to carry a weapon and be ready to use it at any time while teaching?

    A White man posts a racist paper yelling about the White Replacement Theory online then drives hours and kills several black people in a grocery store in a hate crime.

    And Asian man kills 1 person at a church in California and wounds 5.

    Guess which story is getting more air time on Fox News?

    This country has a huge issue with guns. I am not sure at all what the answer is. But it is hard to find that answer when the GOP wont even let people ask the question. And we have the gun nuts that go to court to stop anything even remotely seeming like gun restrictions.

    We have a group here in Ohio that are so upset at the Red Flag Law where guns are taken from a person arrested for Domestic Violence until the case plays out.

    I cant believe how easy it is to get a gun in this country. I am a convicted felon of a violent crime. I have severe mental health disorder. I should not at any point be near a fire arm. Yet I know 3 places that I can go to and have a gun with in the hour. The sick thing is one of those places is a legit gun store that does not come close to following back round check laws and despite being looked into several times they still are around. Sadly that is not an exaggeration on my part and I wish it was.

    You answered your question already.

    Forbid all firearms.

    Weapons are not allowed in my country, so deaths of firearms are very very rare. You can't even carry a knife with you. I feel more secure that way.

    If you have a weapon you are more likely to use deadly force. Its easy to shoot someone in your rage, than strangle or punch some to death.

    One thing sadly that is often over looked in the gun problem is when a person who is able to pass a back round check buying a gun for someone who cant.

    After the Dayton Mass shooting here in Ohio a friend of the shooter was convicted of giving him a gun. After that there was talk of toughening up the penalties for people who buy guns for people not able. Of course gun nuts went crazy. Threats of law suits if anything was passed. There was a bill drafted but it died in committee and never saw a vote. Hasnt been attempted ina serious way here since.

    The thing is banning guns would be an answer like in other countries. But how do we get rid of the thousand and thousands of guns already in the streets? Banning future sales and future production is one thing but what to do with what is out there.

    And sadly even passing a ban like this is decades from happening in America. Gun culture is too ingrained and that needs to change. We cant even decide in this country is assault riffles should be banned for the general public let alone all guns. Hell we cant even pass a ban on high capacity magazines.

    Quoted for truth. If people were forced to choose between the First Amendment and the Second, most of those people would be just fine with not having freedom of speech as long as they keep their previous guns. Too many people treat guns as sacred cows to be worshipped like deities, it’s a longtime sickness this country will NEVER overcome.
