    That's impossible. Something like this will happen again. It's a probability and with enough time we'll see it played out.

    It hasnt worked in DC, hasnt worked in Cali, hasnt worked ANYWHERE with regard to say...heroin, cocaine, etc.

    Fact is the parts of the country with the MOST restrictive laws on private ownership of firearms have the MOST violent crime and murder rates in the country. Bans dont work. Bans just dont work.

    Notice with the ban on heroin, cocaine, illegal firearms like machine guns, etc, criminals still manage to get them...

    Yeah! Look at England.

    A new study suggests the use of handguns in crime rose by 40% in the two years after the weapons were banned.

    BBC News | UK | Handgun crime 'up' despite ban
    A gun ban worked like a charm.

    What about the rest of the crime rates? Crime is ok, as long as a gun isn't used?
