"People don't ban baseball bats, wire or knives so why ban guns?"
Well these items and knives have other uses. Trying slicing onions with a gun and then we'll talk about proper comparisons.

People need to understand that a gun was designed to hurt/kill people. People should be screened for mental health and guns should be kept in reach away from children/teens. People just need to be more responsible about where killing machines end up.

Clubs (baseball bats) and knifes are well known and efficient weapons. And guns have other uses beside killing people, such as hunting, sport, and collecting. So it's not a terrible comparison. Where I will agree with you is that people need to be WAY more responsible with ALL weapons, bans and screenings will do nothing to stop someone who is already willing to break the law; the ultimate fixer is to stop people from wanting to break the law and do terrible things in the first place.

that's not the point, that bat could be a tree branch someone just broke off while going to kill someone. one could use a rock but then we would have to ban every item in the work because if i hit you with a wooden chair in the head, you'll probably die. people don't go on killing sprees with baseball bats.

I realize that. I'm not against gun control; In fact i'm mostly for it, but people shouldn't think it's the only thing between us and another killing spree. The only point I was trying to make was that we pay too much attention to the weapons. I think people get so caught up with banning weapons that they forget to take care of psychopaths thereafter. It's definitely important to disarm a would be killer, but it's far more efficient not to have a killer in the first place. Again, just my opinion. thumb for you.
