But you are making one more step away from scarcity by saying that sellers want to meet demand because the price is so high, by taking more guns. No! The scarcity is scarcity. The sellers compensate their loss of profit exactly by increasing the price. That's the end of the cycle. It is risky to steal it from cops, and it will again drive the price up. But people won't be having dozens of weapons at home, just waiting for a kid to play, or when the mood strikes the owner to kill, pursue a revenge, or commit shooting out of depression. Many instances wouldn't have even started, because the threshold of getting money together, buying an expensive gun from a unknown source (potentially a cop) will just be too hard for him. So he/she will suck it up, or kill herself, or use other less effective means. Like killing only the person that caused it. But it will still make a huge difference. To kill many people without a gun it takes real effort, and much fewer people will be willing to do it, if guns are not available, or they are harder to obtain.
The wisdom is to see things truthfully.
