Does Gun Control Work?
Not the way they go at it today. They make laws that disarm honest people and make them “easy targets” for criminals, who don't obey laws. They need to figure out a way to punish USE of a gun in a crime, to keep such criminals in prison for longer periods, which will work better at keeping more gun-wielding criminals off the streets. They DO have laws that do that, but they are too often used as “bargaining chips” to get convictions in other crimes. We need to make laws to prevent that. “Gun-free zones” don't work. They're just an OPEN INVITATION to criminals to “come in and shoot us up” to the illegally-armed criminals. It speaks wonders that almost ALL mass shootings HAPPEN in “gun-free zones.” That incident in the French subway, for instance: ALL France is a “gun-free zone, and that subway station surely is. Even most COPS in France are unarmed (which is stupid in itself)! We're just lucky there were three heroes there who recognized that the shooter's gun was jammed and “took him down,” beating him unconscious. They should have kept “working him over” as an object lesson, not to do what he was planning. (Gunalizer)
