Ryan Simon Posted over 2 years ago Solving gun violence in the US in today's insane political climate requires a solution that makes it painless for everyone. I like where you heads at on trying to reduce these shootings. I don't think gun locks will really help though. Plus how are you going to defend yourself from a home intruder when your fumbling to enter your gun lock code? I really don't think there's any public policies we can put into place that will significantly reduce these shootings. I thinks a more of just our society and how we work and think. Canada and other countries have guns but there just not used for mass shootings. If someone wants to commit a mass shooting, there going to do it. A gun lock or gun ban may slow them down but it won't stop them. The only truly way to stop these shootings is to address the issues of why are people getting pushed to this point to they snap? Are there warning signs we can see before people commit these crimes? How can we prevent these from a mental stand point. After all its not the gun who's actually killing anyone, it's who's pulling the trigger.
