Yes, Brains. But like others have said, there are so many guns in America now, that families have to protect themselves against the criminals who have guns as well. It's a vicious cycle, yes, but there is no way they could ban guns now. There's way too many. And in the possibility that they WOULD ban firearms, (which will NEVER happen anyway), criminals and others would be able to purchase them on the black market (like drugs), and that would create an even BIGGER problem, for sure.
