Here's a situation: I have users that use a list. They're allowed (and encouraged) to create personal views. With this, I wanted to see if there was a way to keep these users from being able to modify existing public views? There are a couple of users that make things difficult for the rest of the team, because they're constantly changing the default public view.

Probably Users have set Edit Permissions, so change it to Contribute or create your own Permission level:

  • Go to Site Settings > Site Permissions > Permission Levels (in ribbon) > Click on Edit, in the end click on "Copy this permissions" - remove Manage Lists, save as new Permissions Level, use this permission Level for users

Don't edit original permission levels, always create new one.
