Guns should not be allowed in the hands of convicted felons, nor those at risk for mental disorders like schizophrenia and depression. I believe with the proper regulations, the not only will the number of gun-related homicides be reduced, but also the number of gun-related suicides (the vast majority of gun deaths). This will not work as legislation alone, however; we must try to change the culture of death that plagues our communities. If we do not try to change this culture, any regulations or legislation, even if rigorously enforced, will be effective. It’s not enough to just change the supply: we must also change the demand.
