I guess gun control really does work after all.
Yeah lifting the firearms ban would clear that up and no doubt reduce fire arm use.

Your logic is absolute genius.

More guns less shootings. I see it now.

I'm just going to leave this link here as playing devils advocate is always fun.

The figures say exactly that gun ownership has increased and gun related homicide rate has decreased in the US

It was the police officer that shot the raccoon for no reason other than to show off.

Good article.

It highlights in their stats that 70% of homicides are caused by guns and only 40% of guns are acquired illegally on a survey of inmates.

So in theory whilst it does suggest no correlation between number of guns sold and people killed by guns it does allow for room that tighter gun controls would cut the percentage rate of homicides.

None the less nice that some one has finally put out a tangible article to read.

Also worth doing some research on the author of the article who has a history on writing controversial articles.

Sad to hear that. Getting a ride along with a knob can put people off, sure it is just a one off, I would not believe this tool if he says everyone does it, he is trying to justify his actions.

There have been plenty of articles for you to read,you are simply too ignorant to accept them!
There will be some changes to the firearms act in Sept/Oct this year I hear
