It seems that in the present day a person cannot look through a newspaper without reading some tragic article involving children and firearms Such as seen in the Columbine School shooting on April the 20th 1999 where two seniors gunned down 16 fellow students and injured many more What I propose is for the United States to ban the right to own all types of firearms which should in theory end all firearm related deaths There are only between 65 and 80 million Americans that own weapons and between them there is a total of more than 200 million firearms in the Untied States Taking all of these guns off the street should not be a problem because the government agencies have already shown that they can control the use of illegal things such as narcotics If the Government can control something that is produced outside of the country and must be shipped to within our borders they should be able to easily enforce the ban on all weapons The fact that armed citizens prevent crimes in over 2 million cases is not important as long as the murderers rapist robbers and all other criminals have no access to firearms or any other weapons such as knives Knives are being used much more often now days to commit murders than ever before After all of these weapons have been banned the average American will not be in danger therefore there will be no need for weapons in order to defend oneself Also the fact that cities that have perhaps the most repressive laws regarding firearm ownership and possession by citizens has among the highest murder rates anywhere does not mean anything those criminals could have gotten their weapons from anywhere The politicians will not hurt anyone with a ban on all weapons because things such as gun collecting are not important they are simply hobbies that have no purpose Just like bird watching
