Outlawing guns ownership this late in the game would merely mean a huge increase of gun violence and most other forms of violence. Can you imagine all those gang-bangers and other criminals in this country if they were the only ones that had guns? And you can bet they would have them. And what about all the druggies breaking into homes. All of sudden they would not have to worry about meeting head on with 44 magnum. They would have a field day.
I read some time back that there was more guns in private ownership in America then in all of the armies of the world combined. Same paper went on and said that it is the number one deterrent to being invaded because any would be attacker sees the potential citizen army in the U.S. at about 75% of the adult population.
I don't know what the new stats are but back a few years ago, 58% of the gun deaths in this country were suicides. I doubt many of those would have been prevented for lack of a gun. Lot of other ways to kill one’s self if they are determined. Not only that, as horrible as this may sound, some suicides are not all as tragic as they seem to be on the surface.
