In Your Opinion: God the best cure for crime, violence

How can we stop crime and violence? I have a few ideas. 

1. We can have the NRA come into our towns and cities and supply the good guys with tactical semi-automatic weapons so they can shoot or chase off all the bad guys.

2. We can have all the good guys stay inside for a week or two and bring in even more gang members, mobsters, rapists and add some terrorists and some armed psychotic people into our towns and cities and have them kill each other.

3. We could remove a few hundred people from the welfare system and hire more police to walk the beat with the money saved. 

4. We could make all sorts of laws like the SAFE Act banning rifles, shotguns, hand guns, ammo, bows, knives, screwdrivers, glass bottles and martial arts training and ultimately remove our rights and freedoms as U.S. citizens and end up assisting the bad guys to be even more dangerous.

Or 5, we could get some pastors together and hold some old-time tent or camp meetings. We can have a few Christian revivals held at various public parks in all our U.S. towns and cities and share the love of Jesus. We could change our country for the better one soul at a time and stop the violence by allowing God to change the human heart.
