By having a gun present, it makes a conflict more likely to become violent!

In 2013, the FBI found that arguments such as romantic triangles, brawls started by the use of alcohol or drugs, and arguments over money resulted in 1,962 gun deaths. This can be also caused by mental disorders as well, because that can be dangerous.

It will also reduce the societal costs associated with gun violence!
