10. I don't consider 21 to be a child.


I think the whole system needs to be changed, although I am one that does not believe that a ban on guns is the only solution. If someone wants to get a gun, they will find a way, regardless of how many laws are on the books. And even if guns are banned, if someone wants to kill someone, they will find a way, with or without a gun. I know a lot of folks are being killed by gun violence, but there's a lot of folks that own a gun responsibly. I really don't know what the solutions are. It seems like folks that commit these mass killings are intent on killing, and that, to me, is the biggest issue. Guns are certainly the weapon of choice with a high kill rate. If one uses a gun, the chances are high it will strike its intended target. I'm not sold on the idea that if guns are banned, the violence will stop. I think in many cases, those folks intent on killing will just find another weapon to use.
