As long as we keep on teaching by deed or word that violence is an adequate means for conflict solution, while at the same time having guns available or uncontrolled, this will be the every few weeks headline until we get tired of it.

Where are guns uncontrolled in the United States?

Mostly in the homes of the owners.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Point is: why is it a gun fight?  Can't they be men and actually meet face to face?  Guns are pulled too easily, obviously, and that is really scary IMO.

I agree. The situation should have been avoided. But some times dumb situations happen.

And your proposed solution for this?

What about other items improperly stored in the home?

Regulation, and making the failure to comply a punishable offense... with notable penalties.
