The big picture

Take in the message here:

"In the past four months, 29 Israelis have been killed in a wave of stabbing, shooting or car-ramming attacks by Palestinians or Israeli Arabs," according to a report by the BBC.

If guns are unavailable, those bent on violence adapt to another means. Sometimes, they may even embrace alternatives to do violence even if a gun is available.

Bottom line, banning guns won't stop violence. But banning guns would make it more difficult for an ambushed person, be it a government official or private citizen, to have the means to fight back against superior numbers of attackers.
