    No one claims that it would.

    I think it would reduce crime especially if gun owners are required to pass some tests in order to be licensed.
    Specifically, why?
    Please be sure to consult the CT laws regarding handguns before you respond.

    Are you against driver's licences too? Are you against hunting licenses etc.?
    These are provileges, not rights.
    Further, you do not need a license to buy or own a car.

    Registered how? I have some guns but none are registered. It must be a NY thing.

    Same here - none are registered.
    For whatever reason, people seem to think that gun registration is common.

    Doesn't your gun have a serial number on it? Isn't that number (and gun) registered to you in your name?

    They all have a serial number.
    My state does not register firearms, so no.

    not many because most states don't register gun owners.

    crimes of passion do not involve someone getting mad-going to a gun store, filling out the paperwork and then shooting someone

    that is called premeditated first degree murder

    more than three quarters of all murder victims have criminal records

    Is that true? Can you show me a link to that? Seems hard to believe.

    Re your crimes of passion reply - I was not suggesting that they premeditate by going to buy a gun to kill rather that they use a gun they already own to kill. I thought there was a stat that a majority of murders are committed between people who know each other?
