Do You Believe Gun Control Will Stop Mass Killings?

Let's face it: if you think gun control will stop mass killings, you are naive. Take away guns and there will be an escalation in violence. Not only will violence escalate but the means of creating that violence will rise to the next level. A few mouse clicks around the internet plus a simple trip to Wal-Mart or the local grocery or handware store will provide enough ingredients to create all the destruction anyone set on killing a lot of people will need.
Anyone who is deadset on committing suicide and taking as many others with them as possible, won't stop or think twice about not being able to get their hands on a gun. All they have to do is pack a suicide vest with enough explosives to take out a mall, a building or a city block. There are enough examples of how effective this can be. The question is: do we really want to bring this level of violence to our own country?
If we want to stop the violence, we are not going to do it by taking away guns. The only path to stopping violence is to teach our children how to live peaceful, calm lives. We accomplish that by teaching children discipline, self-respect and self-esteem. We make them a priority in our lives and show an interested by including them in our lives instead of sending a message that we are too busy to pay attention to their problems, their fears and their anxieties. Make them feel as though they are wanted instead of shut out.
