Safe gun use good for all AmericansAll people (except criminals) should carry a concealed weapon with the appropriate gun safety class. I strongly believe that all people need to stop saying guns are dangerous; they aren’t if they are in the right hands.
Most people who say that guns kill people have never touched a gun. Carrying a gun will definitely lower crimes, such as muggings, because the criminal will know he/she can be shot.
Also, having a concealed weapon would make hunting more convenient. This is because hunters would be able to quickly have a gun at hand to shoot.
Lastly, guns are protected by the Second Amendment. Founders of our nation said that people have a right to bear arms.
Guns are safe in the right hands, if people are educated about them and use their common sense.
