Yeah right! But we are just dreaming because it will never happen to halter the use of guns. NO GUNS-REMAINS "WHAT IF."
I am not sure exactly what you mean. Are you saying you do not think that we could ever be gun free in this country?

We cannot halter the use of guns in our country because it was already been used long, long time ago. So, gun free country remains "what if. "

I have always been anti-gun. I think people rely too heavily on the second amendment and it needs to be changed. I hate the argument that criminals will still get guns because DUH criminals will always keep doing what they are doing. I do not think that means we need to arm more people. Even in this book, it talks about how a good person with a gun can harm others while trying to help.
The reality is that America is a place built on the use of guns, hence why the second amendment was created. The use of guns and other weapons have been used over hundreds of years to conquer other peoples. Until we become an evolved species that understands power and control isn't everything in a society, guns will not be so coveted and protected. With society conditioned in fear of guns and not having a gun, for many generations, has caused this problem we now face. I would agree with you, but our family uses guns for hunting or we have since the trade days when we acquired guns. Hunting can even be done without guns, and I wouldn't mind that. They are too loud and cause lead pollution in our water and animals. Thanks for your comment!

Guns also helps the country for defense, but if it is used for the wrong reasons, it seems sad.

No, my views on guns did not change. I did feel empathy for the characters who had to use guns, but I still do not believe in them.

The book provided amazing insights. It hasn't changed my opinions but has helped me develop a deeper understanding regarding guns. The world will never change but it's constantly evolving. The laws regarding the handling of guns should also evolve and ensure to do their best in getting guns on the right hands. The basic issue being violence... awareness and positivity should be something people should be talking about.

I never liked guns being in a household, especially when the owner has not undergone psychiatric evaluation and there are children in the house. In my opinion, whenever a person owns one, and he is not a responsible and mentally fit person, his hands itch to use it if there is an opportunity, even just to shoot a rodent.

I agree with you. The characters are the best way to ponder the advantages and the disadvantages.

Yeah, your point is so sad. I agree to that. My uncle kills himself by just a simple problem he can't manage.

My views did not change at all. If anything, they were reinforced. I am not against the second Amendment, but I do think there should be a certain level of gun control. Maybe be more strict on determining who should and should not be allowed to carry a gun.

You have the point. Gun must be in the right hands, specifically those who are physically fit to carry.

My views haven't changed. I'm anti-gun and always will be. Only the trained and disciplined should be allowed access to this device.

Yeah, only the disciplined person must carry a gun. If not , it might bring them to court like my cousin. He picked up my uncle's gun just to show to his friends. He was arrested in the check point because the country implemented gun banned.

My views haven’t changed. If anything, my views were further confirmed. However, I hadn’t considered the danger of armed senior citizens, especially when they realize that they are nearing the end of their lives. The most dangerous people can be the people who feel that they have nothing left to lose.
Yes, I agree that the most dangerous ones are those who are not afraid to die knowing they will die anyway.

Guns should only be used by those in authority. Sadly, so many people today can easily acquire guns.
