Why do people think that better gun control will stop crime?

I mean, since when are criminals known for following the law?

Also the best way to stop crazy people is to get better mental health programs.

you will never stop gun crime or any crime but it can be lowerd or better controled with new and better laws and will take time to inforce them and for them to take afect

Because it has been proven that less guns in circulation lead to less gun deaths.

Also, I’d like to see your source for this information.

No, it’s been proven that areas with less guns have different crime rates than areas with more guns.

Typically they have more violent crime and more homicide, but less gun-based violent crime and gun-based homicide.

Discuss how we should take cars away from everyone because some people drink and drive.

A better and less satirical idea would be to get a better policy on drunk driving.

Gun laws need to be tighter, not restricted.
I mean it depends on the country, UK Gun laws are very strict but there are many happy gun owners. Gun laws in america are always a controversial topic becuase of the 2nd Amendment.

and @Exemplary Returns has a point, any law put in place to lwer gun crime is ignored by those who are lawless

A link to MFT’s thread about law making would be appropriate, but I can’t seem to remember the exact title. It went along the lines of “we shouldn’t punish homicide because criminals disregard laws anyway”. If we use this logic on all of society, there would be no laws at all since laws exist to prevent something. If no one is doing something, there is no need for a law in the first place.

I got a new pistol a few weeks ago because I’m afraid they might actually ban the larger magazines

16 rounds apparently makes me a crazy murderer

if the criminals have no guns, it will be harder for them to kill.

About as hard as buying weed if they decided to ban them.

I remember something about saying we should make homicide super-illegal?

How will I live without my high capacity magazines?


I like guns, but if they decided to ban anything larger than 10 round magazines, I wouldn’t be too upset. It wouldn’t affect my hunting and I’d just carry an ammo box to the range like I do now, anyway.

If they ban guns the badguys will just get them off the blackmarket then the goodguys wont have any guns and then they die.

Because criminals totally can’t get guns elsewhere.

Wrong, disarming populations makes crime rates go far higher than without.

The reason we’re allowed to bear weaponry is mainly in case of these two reasons:
Hostile Invasion
Hostile Takeover (by government)

Now, does the government suddenly wanting you without the right to own defenses seem suspicious in any way?

These proposed laws are as useful as the prohibition, it causes more problems if anything.
