ABSTRACT
This editorial argues the need to eliminate semiautomatic firearms from private homes. A discussion is presented about how the shootings at the Westside Middle School in Jonesboro, Arkansas, committed by children with semiautomatic weapons, underscores the need to take notice of the consequences of keeping weapons in the home. The author emphasizes the need to overlook the myth that keeping firearms in the home protects people.
