The imprisonment approach is fine and helps tremendously, but the huge disadvantage is that is takes effect after the crime has been done. Prevention is better than reaction, surviving victims and their families can confirm that. We must act if we do not want to be guilty by association.

Constitutional right to bear arm

Never compare guns with anything else simply because nothing else, beside guns, is made solely to kill

Marco Rubio 2015: My position on guns is pretty clear. I believe law-abiding people have a fundamental constitutional right to bear arms. And I believe criminals and dangerous people should not have access to guns. There are laws that protect those two things--but many of these [additional] gun laws are ineffective. They don't do those things. They either infringe on the rights of law-abiding people and do nothing to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. And I'm troubled this debate is about guns. It should be about violence. Violence is the problem, guns are what they're using. We are missing a golden opportunity to have an open, honest and serious conversation about these horrific violent acts, because everyone's focused on passing these laws that have proven ineffective.

We can give numbers and statistics all day long.
Statistics from the The National Center for Victims of Crime
These statistics help us a lot, now the goal is not to count but to act with morality.
One person hurt: is one too many. That's all.
We have to achieve perfection in innocent people safety, and the first step is effective prevention with morality.

"Despite the tragic lessons we have learned, it is still far too easy for a convicted felon to buy firearms at a gun show.  I believe law-abiding citizens have the right to own guns, and I have steadfastly fought for those rights for many years. But with rights come responsibilities." Senator John McCain (Tuesday, May 15, 2001)

"Reaching accord on how to reduce gun crimes has divided Congress for far too long, unfortunately, at the expense of so many good citizens who have found themselves at the wrong end of a gun," Senator Joe Lieberman (Tuesday, May 15, 2001)

To get something done, we must all use morality and prevention. Too many issues are controlled by bribery, corruption, misconduct, and financial interests.

The inmate population in state, federal prisons, and local jails in the USA is projected to raise even more.
One more reason to act fast, to be involved in your local community, and to contact your legislators to determine local and national preventive policies.
