Proof of the Pudding

In Australia, they had a big “gun buyback.” But the result is not what they planned. It predictably (among people of intelligence, at least) created a massive “gun black market.” Criminals brought in their old, mostly unusable guns and got good money for them, which they used to buy NEW guns on that gun black market, and continued to use them to rob and kill people. So the "authorities" financed their purchase of new guns. Which reminds me of their almost complete gun BAN. Which resulted in a 300% INCREASE in ”gun violence” as people who wanted to use a gun to commit a crime bought theirs ILLEGALLY or stole them, and used them against the law-abiding, who were mostly UNARMED, by law. What nobody tells you is that gun bans only DISARM honest people, who DO obey laws, while doing NOTHING to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, who DON'T. Every law most politicians propose make it easier for armed criminals to rob and kill because most of their intended victims will not be armed. They INCREASE “gun crime.” (Reason)
