"Gun Control" Doesn't Work

It didn’t work in Mumbai (formerly Bombay), India where TEN people killed HUNDREDS in a country with tight gun laws. It doesn’t work in Australia, which suffered a 300% INCREASE in gun violence after effectively BANNING guns. In America, we have periodical massacres, sometimes in schools, other times in churches and colleges. Some have been done with ILLEGAL guns; others with LICENSED guns. Nothing the anti-gun freaks have tried has worked. If someone wants to go on a shooting spree, he/she always seems able to get guns, legal or not. Whatever makes politicians think that the way to self-defense is to DISARM ourselves; or that criminals, who don’t obey laws, will obey one that says they can’t be armed, I don’t know. Stupidity, maybe? If the Columbine school principal (during their massacre) had had a gun and the will to use it when he peeked around a corner and watched one of the shooters firing into a room and could have “put a couple in him,” maybe the death toll wouldn’t have been so high. In Colorado Springs at a church, it was different. There was a female parishioner there who had been asked to bring her gun to services and act as a “part-time security agent.” She shot the shooter after only two deaths. So he killed himself, knowing it was “all over.” The point is, no amount of “gun control” has EVER been able to “control” guns. So why not allow innocent people to carry guns for self-defense? Maybe violent criminals will find something else to do if they can’t be sure their intended victims aren’t armed and ready to shoot THEM. What good are “gun laws” if they can’t get rid of guns? Only violent criminals meeting guns in the hands of their intended victims will lower gun violence. That’s an absolute. (Just common sense)

Anon: Google it. It's easy to find if you want to find it. That's how I found it.

Anon: It was there when I Googled it. Maybe they edited it out. I can't be responsible for that. the basic fact is, when they banned guns altogether, the violent crime rate went up, as it ALWAYS does. When they make it easier to carry guns for your own protection, it predictably goes down, as it did in Florida.

Anon: Just because you couldn't find it after they removed it, doesn't alter the fact that taking guns away from honest people tends to increase violent crime by assuring criminals they won't run into guns in the hands of their intended victims. That's common sense. something you apparently do not have.

It is still out there "In the Australian state of Victoria, gun homicides have climbed 300 percent;". Google that quote and you have it.
