The prevalence of guns on our society causes this. Make then harder to get and the gun crimes decline.
2- Its the bill of RIGHTS not responsibilities. Infringements. absolutely not.
4- yes and not half az it
6- is this serious?
7- allow/ encourage conceal carry of firearms in those areas. You are only restricting good guys from carrying there. bad guys will and already do break the law there anyways
probably one of the best examples of reasonable gun control anyone has put on here so far...attacking the source not the inanimate object
Personally I believe gun violence could be substantially reduced if we as a nation began to take a good long look at the real root of the problem: Our current drug laws. The "War on Drugs" will eventually bankrupt this country, morally and economically.

I'm not against decriminalizing/legalizing MJ but I'm not sure it will make much of a difference in violent crime. If I sling weed for a living and then my customers can start buying weed at walmart I'm not likely to change careers but rather change the products I provide.
No matter how peaceful, humanitarian and tolerant you are, no matter how well-meaning and honorable your goals - if you ask for a new government law, program or plan, ultimately that program will be paid for with property taken by force from others and the law will be enforced at the point of a gun.
"Make them (guns) harder to get and the gun crimes decline."
Specious statement. Burglary and black market importation will go up as criminal demand will be unaffected by the laws imposed. In fact, if 50% of legal gun owners destroyed their guns today those burglars seeking firearms may need to double the number of homes they hit to satiate their desire.
