Don’t take away guns

I am writing on behalf of a project that I am doing where I have to write my local paper on an issue of my choice. I choose gun control. The thing about gun control is that there certainly are a lot of pros and cons to the issue, like personal safety. But at what cost? Having a concealed weapon may not put you at risk, but it does put the others around you in more danger. Gun control has made many questions arise since the fatal shooting in Connecticut, and most of the debates have been on semi-automatic weapons and if we should ban them because that was the supposed gun that killed those 20 kids and seven adults. The truth is that we think it’s guns that kill people, but it is really people that kill people. The gun is just what they used. Why punish everyone by taking away their guns because of the act of one person? It does not make sense to me.
