If someone REALLY wants to get their hands on a gun, they can, regardless of reg'sGuns aren't the issue. "Humans" always have been, and always will be the issue..02
People are usually quite decided on this issue. It is one of those where people don't change their mind very often. I don't believe in fairy tales. If I did, I might conclude that a world without violence or guns was possible. Even if it was possible, I enjoy shooting. I do it for work and for fun. Most of all, I am glad I live in a country where I can legaly have a home defence weapon. We have seen stricter gun control laws in the last twenty years, but crime has continued to rise. I have to say they are mutually exclusive, since criminals aren't the ones getting permits and obeying gun control laws. There are also fifty seperate states in the union, with a broad range of gun laws. If you really are interested, look into their crime stats. It may surprise you when you find out that states and cities with the tightest gun control laws often have the highest violent crime rates as well as gun violence.
