Gun control: It's on all of us

Less people will die!!!!

How can we solve it?

We can start by educating ourselves. Know what these weapons of mass destruction do, know who is trying to stop research on gun safety, know what organizations are pushing for more comprehensive bans. Once we're educated, we can educate our friends and families and build a groundswell, home by home, street by street and block by block.

FIND OUT HOW THIS TEXAS LAWMAKER IS TRYING TO SHIELD HIS STATE

Any future federal laws passed by Congress or executive orders imposed by President Barack Obama aimed at restricting the ownership of semi-automatic guns or limiting the size of magazines will be considered illegal in Texas — that is, if a newly proposed bill makes it through the Texas legislature.

GOP Rep. Steve Toth said he plans to introduce the “Firearms Protection Act,” which calls for felony criminal charges to be filed against any federal official who tries to enforce new gun-restricting regulations in the Lone Star State.


Will this solve the problem?

SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE NOW!!!

24. How can gun deaths be prevented?

    Gun safety is one of the most important methods for reducing the number of gun deaths. Families that own guns have a responsibility to keep them safely stored, so that only the intended users can actually use them. Also, proper education about firearms makes gun ownership significantly safer. Even many of the original supporters of the 2nd Amendment, such as Richard Henry Lee, stated the importance of teaching children about firearms.

    Also, having higher rates of gun ownership is likely to reduce the rate of violent crime. When guns are banned, there is low gun ownership amongst law-abiding citizens. Thus, the criminals know that they are the only ones who are armed. Time and again, when places have banned guns, rates of violent crime and burglary have skyrocketed. When law-abiding citizens are disarmed, the criminals are free to terrorize the public with no threat of consequence.
