Ron Q writes:

How much more awareness do we need after this being talked at relentlessly for years. The big problem which is rarely addressed directly is illegal guns in impoverished areas. Please come with a solution for that, for that is what causes the most gun crimes.

This is apart of the propaganda campaign to blame inanimate objects for crime, in order to push denying rights from law abiding citizens. This is inappropriate and shouldn't even be a proposal.
