The guns of the world, are they really necessary?

According to an article from cbc news by the associated press that was written December 14th 2012, at Sandy Hook elementary school in Connecticut there was a shooting where 27 were killed. While 20 of those killed were children. The shooter had then killed himself at the end of the massacre.

Although this article is a month old, it's something very important to think about as many young children can be affected from events such as these. Just a few years ago, there was a shooting at a college in Montreal, Dawson, meaning that these kinds of events can happen anywhere, even near us. 

Just the fact that I am a college student is what worries me, that these sorts of massacres can happen to anyone including myself. Guns being the major problem here is something that needs to be thought out. Should they actually be a part of society for any human to use just to cause more of these unwanted and cruel deaths? More control should be sought out over these weapons that only bring destruction and pain.
