    People will find another way to kill. Murderers intent is not to use a gun, but to kill. Murderers, police and military included, will use their hands or any object they can find to accomplish their goal, which is to kill. Banning guns won’t eliminate violence but it will reduce the extent to which others can defend themselves from murderous forces.

    I truly believe with a Democratic/Liberal victory in November we can turn this violence into peace. The President can use executive order to ban all guns and conceal and murder licences. A mandatory turn over your weapons program can be implemented by the federal government along with door to door checks for any who haven’t cooperated with the man date. The solution is so simple if there are no guns there are no killings. The more guns on the streets the more crime will be committed.. The people of this country do not need to possess firearms as they serve no purpose but to encourage crimes and killing. The government needs to put an end to guns in America. Australia’s crime rate has plummeted to almost nothing since the gun ban and confiscation in that country. It works people it just works.
