Violence is the problem, not the tools used. If gangs still used knives, chains and other make-shift weapons we wouldn't pass laws to ban those. Addressing the REAL, ROOT causes of violence in our culture/familes is the essential but difficult thing.
Research shows that pouring money into Early Intervention and Mental Health services EARLIER in a person's life/childhood can drastically reduce the causes of violence and crime.
As for guns, this woman feels better with Uncle Sam's Equalizer in the house. I would stand little to no chance defending my children in a hand-to-hand fight with a male intruder.
