It’s people who hurt each other

When will people understand that it’s people who hurt each other- not the things they use to do it with.  We have laws that people are not allowed to hurt others.  This is enough for laws. Weapons cannot be outlawed because people who are intent to hurt others will just use something else or not obey the laws anyways.  Criminals don’t obey laws or bans. These laws would only be for people who are civil and law abiding in the first place.  These people are the majority of us who just want to live in peace and would not be able to defend themselves against those with stronger weapons- the criminals and the State.  A civilized and free society is one with people who can and will protect themselves.  We must not allow any bans on guns or other weapons.  Our freedom and safety is at stake.
