Guns get out of the hands of the citizens and then they can't defend themselves when the criminal gets their hands on the weapon. However, let the citizens free roam with the weapons, and it'll deter the criminal from performing criminal action (unless they're actually batshit insane). Even then, the batshit insane criminal will still be cut short of causing major casualties. Anyone else agree or wish to expand on this topic? *I do believe that gun owners should be registered. I wouldn't want every single citizen to be carrying a weapon.
All gun control will do is make it harder for law abiding citizens to acquire a gun, however criminals will not follow the laws and will get it, hence the name, criminals. Look at the shootings, done in 'gun free' zones. What would happen if they were to try a shooting in a gun show? Or even a place that not only allowed, but promoted conceal and open carry? I will answer it for you, the police would arrive but not to kill the sick -blam!-, but to identify the body. All of you who don't know about guns, look up pussified reporter 'shoots' ar15, and laugh your ass off, because that guy is wimpier than 5 year old girls that i know shoot ar15's. Then look up someone like IraqVeteran8888 cuz he knows his shit, or someone like Jerry Miculek. Not just so you can see the coolest guns, or world records, but to learn about something that not many people will take the time to learn about, but will try to have it banned in a heart beat.
