But gun violence is only worsened by the number of people carrying firearmsâ€“legally or illegally.
The Temple News encourages students to consider a holistic approach to safety, rather than equipping themselves with weapons that could lead to more bloodshed. This includes choosing where to live and recognizing times when sitting outside isnâ€™t necessarily the safest bet.
Armed robbers getting their asses shot is the kind of “gun violence” I don’t have any problem with, and I consider it no tragedy that a Temple student was able to successfully defend himself rather than become another murder statistic in the City of Brotherly Love. To think otherwise is entirely to have a warped sense of morals.
