    Guns do not fire themselves. People are the problem. People who cannot handle a gun should not be allowed to drive a car. Do we ban cars because the majority of people can’t drive?

    Well, that accounts for one handgun on the streets. Where are the thousands of others coming from? While walking in any major city, I have to assume that all blacks between the ages of 14 and 40 are carrying. Profile, stop and frisk! They are out of control.
