No austrailias gun ban didn't reduce violent crime.
It only changed the medium.
A person is more likely to get stabbed( 3 times MORE LIKELY) than shot(STILL).

A quarter of the already extremely minor rate of 4.9/100,000 ?
That's not even a blip on the radar. Check out other causes of death, and get back to me once you solve those.
Or as I said before, as soon as movie stars and politicians feel secure enough here to give up their armed security, my guns won't be going anywhere. And that is a promise.

We’re actually in the process of making cars even safer (self driving). We’ve also passed many measures and regulations (seatbelts, car seats, strict DWI laws), to make cars safer.
So since you brought up cars, should we go the same way with guns? Passing regulations and safety measures to make guns (or ownership) “safer”.
