For the sake of peace, impose very strict gun rules

When will we open our eyes and realize that guns are instruments that bring misery, destruction and death to innocent people.

When will we open our eyes and realize that guns are instruments that bring misery, destruction and death to innocent people.

It is nothing but heart breaking to witness the services for the innocents who have paid the price.

Legalizing guns does not make it any less dangerous.

They should be banned, except for use by few individuals who have undergone thorough training and understand the consequences of using this horrible agent of death.

They should not be available under any circumstances.

Unless we see it and stop ignoring this fact with various excuses, we will continue to pay the price.

At least that is what I think, even at the risk of rubbing the backs of some people who assert that it is their right thus allowing it to be available in our stores at a price that anyone can afford.

Ban guns and you will live in peace.
