How many times do I have to say the same thing only for you to ignore it every time. Every time we ban guns, gun homicides go up, not down, while everyone else where it isn't banned, it goes down. Those are facts that you continue to ignore in this thread and all others. You also ignore the fact that the only person responsible for your safety in the US is you. Lets through a new fact into the mix. It is now possible for anyone with a 3d printer to print most of a gun, and within a few years, and entire gun. That is a reusable gun. Single fire weapons are already possible to be printed. But hey, I am sure you will ignore that too.
Criminals give themselves the right to do anything that way. It doesn't mean they get away with it without consequence, but the law has no bearing on their actions. The government gets its power from its citizens. Criminals don't recognize that power as legitimate, hence they have the right to do whatever they want. Laws don't apply to criminals when they make decisions. Stop pretending it does. We have banned guns before. It had the exact opposite effect of what you are claiming would happen. Come up with a real solution that isn't about giving criminals an advantage and you won't be considered a nutcase that is against having the right to protect yourself.
You tell me I ignore FACTS, you just completely ignored the first part of my post.
Why are you banging on about 3D printed weapons, that is a possible threat here yet our gun homicide stats stay low.
You have banned guns in some states and you expected gun stats to go down?
I've already said it in another thread but banning guns in a few states is like patching up 3 holes in a dam and wondering why water is still escaping from the other 40odd holes. For a gun ban to be effective you need a ban in ALL states and a gun amnesty where people can turn their weapons into the government in exchange for cash and then having HEAVY punishments just for being in possession of a firearm let alone firing one.
No ones saying you can't protect yourself, the rest of the world doesn't hide behind a gun to do it.
You Americans sure like to use the word "rights" a lot, your country is still an infant stumbling its way through the world, hopefully one day it will grow up.
