Personally I am anti guns. Maybe it's easy for me to say that. Living in the UK having not experienced gun culture. I understand that if someone has a violent mentality and wants to kill people then they could find a way with or without guns. However, logic dictates that a ban on guns should reduce shootings such as Charleston and other instances when some idiot has gone to a school and killed children. It should also put a stop to senseless killings where children have found a gun of a family member and accidentally killed someone.
I know this is a big difference between the UK and the USA. I think most most people in the UK find it crazy that so many households in America own a gun.

The problem is, how do you define a criminal? Someone who breaks the law, correct? So if someone is going to kill people, do you think a ban on guns is going to stop them from getting a gun? Absolutely not. They're a criminal. Breaking the law is what defines them.
All a gun ban does is keep guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens. People that would not have a gun if there was a law against having a gun. So now all the criminals have guns, and none of the innocent people do. Now all the criminals have guns AND all the criminals KNOW none of the innocent people do.
Do there need to be strict rules and regulations? Of course. But I'm from the country, and there have been several instances I can recall in which a criminal was stopped from committing a crime out here because the victim had a gun. I cannot think of one instance in which someone who was legally allowed to have a gun, broke the law with it, where I'm from.7
