That'll solve the issue... or so a lot of US citizens on ATS try to tell me.
Uh, no -- these are criminals. If you banned guns -- they'd still have them. What you need to do is bring money into the ghettos, bring honest jobs that pay well enough for people to afford to live there. What you need to do, is uplift the populations wallets so they don't have to turn to crime to save money.
Poverty = Crime. Guns have nothing to do with it.

Police tend to not want to deal with gang violence. After all, those bad guys are armed.
Funny how gang violence does not come up much as a problem much in the gun control debate. I don't think anyone wants to take on that beast.
