If you make it harder to murder people, less people will be murdered.
You can't escape the bleeding obvious.
Such as the "bleeding obvious" that there are places in the US with very restrictive gun laws and yet which have very high murder rates - by guns.
Or the "bleeding obvious" that although your statement might seem to be generally there is in fact no evidence that the law under discussion will in fact lead to your statement. Actually, as per the previous statement, it is at least somewhat reasonable to suppose that it will have not impact.
We don't have it this often. We have more people died in car crashs after speeding than killed by weapons. However, you can always discuss "Is it the weapon which kills people or the one who shoot the weapon is who kills people". Difficult thing...
However, if you want to kill someone you can do it with a gun... or with your bare hands. Doesn't matter, the other guy is dead anyways.
Have you seen that Gun in the Photo of the article you linked too. Are you seriously bemoaning the fact that a State want's to outlaw it?
I will sleep better in my Bed tonight knowing that if a Burglar crept into my house he wouldn't be armed with that, as he won't have access to it. My Missus will sleep easier in my Bed knowing that I can get up and Beat the Sh*t out of any Intruders, without having to rely on trying to get access to a Gun Cabinet in the middle of the night.
At the end of the day I guarantee you my Missus feels more safer with me to protect her in a gun-free society than yours does in a gun-prevalent society, no matter how many guns of varying type you own.
(Good Point on the NYE photos though, although I haven't seen them this Year I can imagine. Link will be appreciated.)
What part of banning a gun, will stop a criminal from possessing or using one?
In a county where these guns are already illegal, a criminal was caught with a fully auto high capacity accepting gun (by my future sister in law). I'll point out a fully auto tec9 has been illegal on the federal level since the 80's.
