    Yes, because when you make something illegal, the criminals will stop using it, right?
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    No but gun controls can effect the amount of weapons in circulation and therefore their availability to anyone, whether they respect gun control in principle or not.

    This is possibly one of the very most interesting points in gun control debates, it was also possible to buy dynamite more easily in the past and there were not as many incidents of "mad bombings" necessitating control.

    Do you think that class divisions and income prevented guns becoming available to criminal rather than gentlemanly elements or how did it work?
