In the past week, two horrible mass shootings took place. One in Ohio and another in El Paso, Texas and shortly after the internet, as expected, with anti-gun posts on all the social media platforms but one tweet went against the trend and it was from a decorated well-known scientist, Neil deGrasse Tyson.  



Of course, he was lashed at by the media and he was even trending on Twitter. But let's step back for a minute and analyze what he wrote. He is absolutely right, guns used in mass shootings aren't as much of a threat as you might think them to be and we shouldn't be emotional about making decisions after a horrible incident. We should be logical in our approaches to solve the problem. And I would like to add to his statement that banning guns will never solve the problems caused by them. simply because guns are a tool like any other tool; They can be used for good or for bad. when someone decides to shoot themselves and commit suicide the problem isn't the gun they had, the problem was their mental state the lead them to do that. Same thing when someone decides to kill innocent people in a mass shooting.
