Guns are tools, it is not the gun's fault that someone wrongly uses it, it is the person's. Guns are good because they can be used for hunting, and the places that have anti-gun laws don't affect criminals, they're going to murder someone so does it matter if they get life + 10 years? or life in prison. so overall yes we should have guns, And it is not our fault for the things that criminals do.
