Do you know why people shoot up schools? No one there can defend themselves.
I am not advocating weapons in schools. I do think that you should think with logic and not emotion though which is not how this thread was started.
The USA leads all industrialized nations in deaths via firearms.
The USA leads all industrialized nations in number of firearms.
Therefore the solution to reducing firearm deaths is more firearms/less restrictions.
That kind of thinking (if you can call it that) sounds precisely like the opposite of logic.
Washington, DC—States with low gun ownership rates and strong gun laws have the lowest rates of gun death according to a new analysis by the Violence Policy Center (VPC) of 2009 national data (the most recent available) from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control.
The analysis reveals that the five states with the lowest per capita gun death rates were Massachusetts, Hawaii, New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut. Each of these states had a per capita gun death rate far below the national per capita gun death rate of 10.19 per 100,000 for 2009. Each state has strong gun laws and low gun ownership rates. By contrast, states with weak gun laws and higher rates of gun ownership had far higher rates of firearm-related death. Ranking first in the nation for gun death was Louisiana, followed by Wyoming, Alabama, Montana, and Mississippi.
