We don't need more gun control laws. We need to change the way people view guns. One of the reasons why people are against guns and want more gun control laws is because of their lack of information about guns. The media demonizes guns and makes them seem like they are objects of mass murder, when in reality they are no more lethal than a drunken driver.
The truth is guns are not going to go anywhere. There are millions of guns in the United States and banning them will not make a difference. If a ban on any specific type of weapon is implemented, it will only affect the purchase of new guns not the ones that are in circulation.
The gun control battles are yet to begin, but I hope people can see that these are essential to maintain our freedom against an oppressive government or anyone who wants to take our rights from us.
