I am going to use some simple "Pro-gun" logic here. "Taking guns away," would work... except that crooks don't buy them legally in the first
place. If you naively expect a killer to politely register his gun, then you are incredibly ingenuous. (that is a REAL word, look it up
I know for a fact that in countries that don't have guns crime has gone up. My mother lived in Papua New Guinea for 17 years, and guns were outlawed
over there. So, all the kind, obedient citizens didn't buy guns, and now, when they go down the mountains to sell their coffee beans, and come back
with the money, they are beaten or killed, and their money is taken by criminals, who DO have guns.
The police force can't stop them, and crime has skyrocketed.
"But, oh! America has a good, efficient police force. We don't need guns!"
Bull. The police can't instantly teleport to your house, and nothing, repeat NOTHING scares a robber more that a loaded gun pointed at his snozzola,
being held by and angry guy in pjs
