I thought this was interesting!!
Looks like when guns are illegal, only criminals own them and there is no one to make them think twice about using them.
Keep them banned...its clearly working.
I like the "Conclusion: cold weather causes murder" lol
:lol: @ cold weather causes murder. Lol
Proud to live in Houston AND carry a gun.
I thought this was going to be about Australia and my first thought was ... Bogans being able to go to Big W and buy ammo ... Thats a terrifying thought

Love the chart!
I don't know what the solution is for Chicago but perhaps enforcing their current laws about unlawful possession would work if they actually punished the bad guys with the guns.
If guns are banned, law abiding American citizens will not be able to protect themselves against the criminals who will still have guns, illegally.
It is our Constitutional right to bear arms.. the purpose of this is so that WE, THE PEOPLE will have the ability to stand up to our government officials should they get out of hand... start behaving communistically... which ironically, IMO the whole idea of banning guns seems a little bit communistic. Just sayin'.
The people who think guns should be banned....
HOW are they going to do that? They will have to go house to house and search for guns. What are they going to use to force people to hand their guns over? Guns. So..what you (the people who think guns should be banned) want is only the cops to have guns. The SAME cops that people repeatedly complain about and say they are rude/dumb/dangerous/to authoritative?
Makes sense. :lol:
The poll question is wrong; guns are already legal (in America anyway). I really don't care if they outlaw them or not. It really doesn't matter - Enough people already own them so it would take YEARS to get all the guns off the streets. The whole idea of banning them now is silly. The criminals will still manage to find them. It's like with drugs...taking drugs is illegal too but that doesnt stop people from doing it. Speeding is illegal too but people still drive over the speed limit. Banning something doesn't mean it will go away. If anything, they should make drugs LEGAL so the gun violence will go down. The reason there is so much crime in drug-ridden areas is because people who have drugs cannot rely on the police to protect their "property" (i.e. drugs) so they have to arm themselves with guns.

Heh. I am not one of those people who think that we need tighter gun control, and especially not bans... but I do absolutely believe that if they want to disarm the citizens, the government is not above going house to house to take away our guns... with guns. As ironic as that sounds... I believe it can and probably will happen some time in the near future.
