The problem that I see, is that uninformed and uneducated people assume if you get your hands on a gun, you will find a way to use it on someone else or yourself.
I once told my mother she would be safer if she bought a gun and was armed and her response: "the next thing you know, I'm going to go kill my neighbor, I don't want to do that!" This is the problem we are currently facing in this country and something that will have to be overcome through education.
Until then, media sensationalism will rule the day.
