The US government can't even properly complete a census survey, what makes you think they could even pretend to begin removing all guns from
civilians. That said... no one, anywhere, has suggested a total gun ban, that's a phantom spread by nuts like AJ. Stricter control and regulation
of certain weapons is what I'm reading about, and seeing on the news...
but a total ban?
Well, you've just disarmed the public, and told every gun carrying criminal "have at them". As well, if you raise the penalties to something equal
to life in prison, you will cause more deaths.
As I explained to a coworker:
Lets say they ban guns, well, the criminals aren't going to just hand them over, and they'll know you are disarmed, so robbing you is a crime with
very little risk.
Lets say EVERYONE has a gun and a CC permit. Now that stoned kid who is still gonna mug you has gone from a quick painless mugging, to a potentially
life and death situation.
how do you think that will play out?
A total ban will be an epic fail. Doing nothing at all will be as well.
It's time, sorry gun lovers, it's time t re-asses some of this, i personally don't think you have the right to walk into a walmart and purchase an
assault rifle, I just can't comprehend how that's a "right"
