Tyler Burt: Guns not needed

Guns not needed

Every day on the news there are lurid stories of the carnage guns do, either in close relationships or at public events of mass mayhem.

I have seldom, indeed never, had a need for a gun. A flashlight? Yes. A car? Yes. But a gun? Never.

I have, however, heard of instances where I really needed someone else to not have a gun.
