What recently happened at the Lone Star College in Houston proved again that people with guns kill, people with knives mostly injure.

Imagine the murders the person could have committed if he had an assault weapon with a 30-round magazine like one the killer at Newtown, Conn., had, a legal weapon that was capable of shooting 154 bullets in just five minutes.

In a perfect world, we would be able to perfectly predict and stop insane and evil behavior, but we live in an imperfect world; we realize that we cannot control or predict someone intent on committing murder. However, we can minimize the damage by restricting the type of guns available.

Congress should be reminded that gun control should be a human issue, not a political one.
