    Nothing will stop crime but there is absolutely no evidence that gun laws that hassle honest people only (magazine restrictions, guns per month, etc only hassle honest people since criminals are already banned from owning guns) prevent any crime The best someone could prove is that some suicides among one of many age cohorts may have been lessened by a waiting period.


    we on the other hand can prove that guns are used all the time to stop criminal attacks and that gun laws that target honest people do infringe on our rights

    these "hassles", make it more difficult for criminals to get guns.

    we should keep emotion out of the law. drugs are bad but making them illegal to show we are against bad things causes more problems than the drugs themselves

    You beat me to it. Thunder, you can't possibly believe that, if so you need to take a break from second amendment discussions for a while and do lots of homework. A drive throught "that" neighborhood in any city plus five minutes and forty bucks equals gun.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I have no doubt, that the law limiting handgun sales in Va to one per month, per person...reduced the flow of handguns to criminals.

    yeah, and where do you think "that guy" gets the guns to sell?

    he drives to places like North Carolina, buys 10 handguns, drives up north, and sells them on the street.

    well since criminals cannot buy any gun legally that is rather stupid

    and I already explained that if someone is buying multiple guns to then sell illegally to criminals there are plenty of laws to stop that if they are enforced.

    but we do know that a one gun a month law hassles people like me. I often buy more than one gun a month. For example, one of my best friends turns 50 next week and I just bought him a stainless Kimber 45. within the last month I bought my son a 9mm Kimber for his birthday

    now why should I have been prevented from buying that second gun?
