It will because weapons are about to be taken by force, soon. And when you only have a few on the black market, then yes some shootings will occur, but not a weekly occurrence like we are witnessing here and now.

Banning guns will not stop people from obtaining guns. Criminals will all have guns and if you wanted a gun you could buy one from a criminal. Machine shops can manufacture guns. Arresting everyone who was caught with a gun would bankrupt us. There is no way to truly ban guns that would not have unintended consequences worse than legal gun ownership.
By the way OP, your remark on 1200 rounds? A responsible gun owner who actively goes out and shoots his guns at a firing range or on private property can easily go through that in less than a day depending on the guns he is shooting, responsibly.

Before someone mentions that small town where gun ownership is mandatory, its not actually. Read the law and it says if you dont want one you dont have to have one, in effect its no different than anywhere else in the US.
Yes the crime rate there is low but so is every other town with 30,000 or less residents.

I don't care if they did ban them. I'm keeping mine. I need to get some more. When martial law/zombie apocalypse/possible war on U.S. soil/terrorism, other country invasion unfolds, don't be asking me can you borrow one of mines after you turned yours in.
