If guns are banned in a school, then the school should be legally obligated to protect those who they have made defenseless. The same is true of a church, a concert area, or a city. If people are banned from defending themselves, then those who have made that decision should be obligated to protect them. Rather than blaming the gun (which, in every case, is being used illegally anyhow), we should blame those who are not allowing people to have the means of defending themselves. As it is, however, the shooters have all the control, and the blame is placed on those who had nothing to do with it, that being the vast majority of gun owners who are not shooting up schools, churches, and concerts. When there is a school shooting, the anger should be directed at those within the school or state who chose not to protect the children who attend school there. In cities where citizens are banned from having the means of defending themselves, the police should be legally obligated to keep everyone in that city safe and held criminally responsible if they should fail to do so. Since this is impractical, then we should admit that it is also impractical and indefensible to not allow people the means to defend themselves.
