Does Gun Control Work?

More guns, more problems. Right? Take away guns, all it does is remove a medium. For example, in Soviet Russia a nation-wide ban on guns was issued. It was successful by removing gun violence and ownership. However, violent crimes still came close or equaled to the gun-saturated United States at the time because people simply used other weapons. In the United States, Chicago is also a prime example. Since the implementation of gun control laws, the city hasn't drastically changed gun ownership and still remains one of the most dangerous cities in America. Another point I felt is worth mentioning are the Columbine and Virginia Tech shooters. The teenagers at Columbine managed to get weapons from a woman who bought it for them, and Seung-Hui Cho passed a mental background check when he bought his guns even though he had been labeled mentally unstable beforehand. So what do you say, Flood? Does gun control work?
