We have all heard that little saying time and again... but what if we actually got rid of the bullets?
I have always said (I know you probably don't know all that much about me, but trust me when I say 'I have always said') In my perfect world we would get rid of all the guns and start over with training classes and thorough background checks, and reoccurring background checks to ensure sustained ability to own a gun. And the world would be a safer place. But that is not the world we live in, it will never be.
Well, we can't get rid of guns, and my perfect world isn't anybody else's perfect world -don't I just know that all too well- so my solution is to get rid of the bullets, or make them harder to get a hold of, or make them outrageously expensive, or at least show some form with proof of training and certification to purchase them (the last is the most feasible I know, though still not probable). If you had to spend $500 a bullet you would be less likely to keep them anywhere near where kids could get a hold of them and then accidentally (or on purpose... or accidentally on purpose) shoot themselves or someone else. There would be less 'innocent bystander' killings, people would aim better and actually hit what they were aiming for - because of the training and certification, you can see how that works.
It isn't a perfect world and my solution isn't a perfect solution... but it might make a dent in the number of murders where guns were the weapon of choice. Besides, I prefer knives anyway... they are just so much more personal. (that was a joke, like I said, you don't know me yet)
