There will always be bad people wanting to do bad things, the answer is not infringing on the rights of law abiding citizens but dealing directly with the criminals.
A hit and run is not justification to ban all cars, an alcohol related incident is not justification to ban all alcohol, just like a shooting is not justification to ban all guns.
Despite murder with guns being down 49%
since the 90s.....
"A survey by the Pew Centre earlier this year found that 56 per cent of Americans polled believed that gun crime is higher now than two decades ago. Only 12 per cent correctly thought that gun crime was lower."
Thats the result of our government propaganda machine.
