The problem is more complex than a simple agree, disagree, neutral question. For starters: https://www.unodc.org/documents/gsh/pdfs/2014_GLOBAL_HOMICIDE_BOOK_web.pdf

Inanimate objects objects are not the reason for any form of violence as they are only tool of the person or weapon using them. Almost anything can be used as a tool to do harm to others and I am including spit wads, straight pins and paperclips in this.

It's people who decide to pull the trigger, swing the blade, or poison someone.

Reasons To Agree
The question has no mention of any specific weapon type, therefore you cannot argue that guns dont kill people people kill people. However, the prevalence, ease of access and lack of proper background checking certainly does not help the statistics of death using firearms. It has been proven in serveal countries that when certain laws are enforced (not making firearms illegal but making is harder to get them) the death rate involving firearms decrease immensely.

Reasons for Remain Neutral
It really depends on who has them, and how they are used.
