Disarming America is not the solution to gun violence. It would be virtually impossible to confiscate every weapon in our country, and criminals will get guns no matter what.

What we are doing, with all of the talk and action about gun control, is disarming the good guys. This is a mistake.

We should be going in the opposite direction — making it easier for law-abiding citizens to obtain and carry weapons.

There would be fewer mass shootings if deranged individuals believe there is a possibility that someone would be shooting back.
