Some one has said, all spoons should be taken away from obese people because spoons make people fat. You say, that is plain silly. It is absolutely no different with guns. Guns do not kill people, bad people kill people.
Take away all guns and only bad people will have guns.
I lived in Mexico for 7 months. There is a strict ban on citizens owning guns. Yet Mexico has a high rate of crime including murder. In Mexico, good people are not allowed to have guns for protection but bad people do have guns.
Switzerland has one of the worlds lowest crime rates, yet most people own at least 1 gun.
Anyone who believes guns contribute to a high crime rate is living in a never, never world because it is not true. It sounds good but it is false. More later as I recall………………
