The problem is not the "gun"; it are the "humans" who use it when frustrated as well have a tool to get it their way in this world with their "animal" instinct. It shows clearly the "mental" health of an country. The "mental health" here is "downhill" here all the way, because of "incompetence" all around, which is created by the lack of proper education. In the education field there is much more attention on how the world "economy" is so much more important than "mental health". All the "modern tools" overload affects the brain in an huge way. In the "stone age" your only worry was getting your "food" on the "rock" with all the means you had at those times. No computers or cars or "politics" or "material greed" . Looking at all the "complications of "modern life" and the things which happen around you as well the constant stream of daily information drives people nuts. All the time you have to "do" things to stay afloat, which is detrimental to being "normal". You don't live yourself anymore; you are being "lived" by the (not normal) society around you nowadays.
No wonder that "humanity" with all its inventions and "war/killing" tools eventually will destroy itself. The "cavemen" at least could relax as they wished and were happy with an bearskin and meat and an camp fire only.
Well Dutch, it's a matter of self control, trying to keep one's sanity.
I once was thinking of writing a book, it would have been entitled "people I could have killed, one's I should have killed, but didn't.
Why? Because things in life have angered me. Beginning in my childhood, my father used to beat the hell out of my mom, he whipped both my brother and I with a wide belt nearly every day. He should have been my very first justifiable homicide. But, I let bygones be bygones, but never really deep down forgave him for the way he treated all of us. When he kicked my brother out, he stabbed him in his neck on the way out. Later, he grabbed me by my neck and held me against a wall and choked me until my lights almost went out, my mom stopped him from killing me. I ended up running away from home at the age of 15. He should have been killed for trying to kill us.
There are laws on the books nowadays that are supposed to protect spouses, girlfriends, and minors, but sometimes, those laws are useless.
My last and latest homicide would have been the property manager where we once lived, he tried blaming us for the sewer lateral blockage by accusing my wife and I of throwing baby wipes down the toilet and causing the problems. Well, I got over hating his guts and let it be. I never have killed or beat the hell out of anyone in my entire life, but that doesn't mean that I didn't want to.
p.s., don't tell anyone that I've told you about these things because they're kind of embarrassing.
