Banning Won’t Solve the Problem

When news spread about a shooting at Reynolds High School in Oregon, I first thought one thing.

We are going to hear about the idea of banning guns. Here we go again.

I have kept myself quiet on the matter for a long time now.

And I am tired of being quiet about it.

Banning guns from won’t solve the problem. Adding more security to schools, to airports, etc. won’t solve the problem.

Humans were violent before guns, swords, knives, etc. were invented. Humans, whether or not these weapons exist, will continue to express their violent thoughts. The only way things will change is if we humans learn to love and respect each other. The only way things will change is if we humans remember that life has value.

Until than there will always be violence.

Guns aren’t the problem.

Swords aren’t the problem.

Knives aren’t the problem.

Weapons aren’t the problem.

We are the problem.
