Is Gun Control A Good Idea?

“Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” – Mahatma Gandhi

What is the Issue Regarding Gun Control?

Proponents of gun control enthusiastically suggest that gun control creates gun-free zones that preclude gun violence. They are blissfully unaware that some of the most egregious behavior on the part of tyrants set the stage for their “ethnic cleansing” by gun confiscation. The gun confiscation, in turn, followed the development of a central registry of where the guns live and where the gun owners live.

A Respectful Suggestion

Proponents of gun control often suggest that this is a matter of opinion — much like an opinion as to which flavor of ice cream tastes better. The question is really an empirical question and can be approached via statistics.

Individuals who want guns to be illegal may wish to familiarize themselves with world history on this topic AND comparisons of cities in which concealed carry is illegal and those cities in which it is legal for both airsoft and regular guns.
