Guns don't kill people. Evil people kill people

American students are walking out of school to protest gun violence. They are not angry about a person who killed 17 people, but instead they are upset about inanimate objects — guns.

Not one gun has ever pulled its own trigger and killed someone. There are no evil guns. There are evil people. Those people will obtain whatever device they want in order to carry out their evil intent.

Guns are not violent. Evil people who use them are violent. Good, honest people follow gun control laws that are already in place. Regardless of how many more gun control laws are passed, either federally or by individual states, criminals and evil people will not adhere to them.

More gun control cannot control a person. Only you can control a person and that person is yourself.

These days, many people are without natural affection, despisers of those who choose right. If each of us had a goal to improve ourselves, perhaps we might have more opportunity to influence others for good.
