I don't believe there should be a gun inside one's house because if it falls under the wrong hands, it could be lethal.
I agree with you 100 percent
Me too, a gun must be under control of someone who can manage well. Sad to say, today almost everyone who likes gun can have it.

Guns are not the only answer, but they are also not the only problem. I believe that the human heart is where violence starts. Regardless of what laws are passed, our society will be plagued with violence until we learn to address the pain and hopelessness that is behind it.

I remain close-minded on this one. I imagine if everyone thinks a gun could be the answer; any slight misunderstanding could get the wildly tempered shooting everyone. But if it was out of sight, it would have been out of mind as well. Let's always remember the most peaceful ways of solving anything.

I don’t think guns are the only answer, but they are sometimes necessary for protection. Obviously owning a gun is a huge responsibility and should be taken on accordingly.

I don't think that guns is the only answer to defend yourself. There are a lot of ways to defend or protect ourselves. Learning martial arts, boxing, jujitsu and other self defense lessons. There's also weapon that can be used instead of a gun. By being prepared, alert, vigilant and self awareness can be useful in critical time.

I feel like a gun in many situations just causes more problems. Just like in the book at the NRA meeting, it creates a domino effect and in the end, more people end up hurt.
