SOME NUMBERS

300 million+

11 million made in 2013

People in America: approx. 300 million

31% of households reported having a firearm in 2014

22.4% of adults owned guns in 2014

23 million FBI background checks in 2015

372 mass shootings in 2015

80% of guns in mass shootings were obtained legally

CONCEALED CARRY

Basically get rid of gun free zones

Allow a responsible adult with a gun license and training to have guns

Shootings are less likely to occur where other people have guns

When faced with resistance most deranged shooters give up

PLO (Palestine Liberal Organization)

Kidnapped Israel students and eventually massacred them

As a response the Israeli raised security at schools

Armed guards or armed teachers

Israel has not experienced such an attack ever since

ISRAEL

CONCLUSION

Gun bans have certainly reduced crimes in other places around the world

America is not likely to join that list

A lot of guns in America

I think the concealed carry law might help if only a little
