A couple of years ago on April twentieth two teenagers no more than sixteen years of age decided to wreak havoc on their school By the end of their fifteen minutes of terror they had killed thirteen people twelve students and one teacher before taking their own lives And so we have the birth of the Columbine tragedy Could better weapons control have prevented the Columbine tragedy I say weapons control because a lot more weapons than just guns are used in crimes In fact more often than not a knife is used to threaten people rather than a gun Whether a knife or a gun all are weapons of mass destruction I say mass destruction because any weapon used to kill someone causes a mass destruction A person doesnt even need a sharp object to take another ones life What are we to do ban all potentially dangerous objects That isnt even construed as a possible resolution simply because it is improbable So we move on to the weapons that cause the bigger bang guns If we ban use of all guns to civilians then we have no guns to shoot each other with Not quite that simple because 1 it conflicts with a constitutional right every American is born with and 2 only two people will have guns law enforcement officials and the bad guys Drugs are 100 percent illegal but many people still find a way to smoke a joint after they get home from work So over the past years weve had laws passed to restrict who can own weapons and requiring specials permits for special uses ie Concealed handgun Despite these efforts people are still getting murdered everyday for motives mostly related to money The people using these guns arent by any means law-abiding citizens so what makes you think they are going to have permits for their guns Theyre not plus every gun has a unique mark it
