    The leader of New Zealand, by banning firearms, is following a policy that has not worked in England or Australia. Violent death in England has gone up since firearms have been banned. Look at the stats. It does not work to target law abiding citizens; we must target criminals and hold them responsible. We must also target the pharmaceutical companies who have drugged so many of the shooters with anti-depressants and anti-psychotics that actually cause them to be violent killers. These are the same drugs that made Robin Williams commit a violent act on himself. The unspoken issue here is the lack of psychological treatment for desperate people, and the reason we drug people, including our children for their behavior, instead of helping them work through their problems.
