GUNS DONíT KEEP US SAFE.
The shooterís mother had a stockpile of guns and no one of them keep her from being killed by one of them and 20 others. If she had not had guns in her home she and the other would be alive.
If a shooter get to a classroom with a gun a teacher or a principal could not get to him before he kills some of the children. And a student with a gun can do the same thing. Secure the school and the classrooms. When was the last time some one broke into a prison and killed an inmate or an employee? We do whatever is necessary to keep our children safe but stupidity is not one of them. More children are killed in home by a family member or by accident than by strangers.
GUN CONROL SAVE LIVES.
Your gun is more likely to kill you or someone you love than an intruder.
Myth: A gun in the home increases personal safety.
Fact: A gun in the home make homicide 2.7 times more likely.
Keeping a gun in the home carries a murder risk 2.7 times greater than not keeping one, according to a study by Arthur Kellermann. The study found that people are 21 times more likely to be killed by someone they know than a stranger breaking into the house.
In an attempt to answer this question, a team led by Dr. Arthur Kellermann of Emory University conducted a survey of 388 homes that had experienced homicides.(1) They found that 76.7 percent of the victims were killed by a spouse, family member or someone they knew, and there was no forced entry into the home 84.3 percent of the time. Strangers comprised only 3.6 percent of the killers. However, the killer was never identified in 17.4 percent of the cases
