Gun Control Works, just not as it is advertised.

Gun Control Works, just not as it is advertised.

Biloxi, Mississippi (Ammoland) Recently a colleague offered the observation that anti-gun or gun control laws are blatant and obvious failures.

He pointed to the crime rates in Chicago, D.C. and New York as examples of areas with severely restrictive gun control policies and yet record-breaking violent crime.

My friend wondered aloud how any rational or thinking person, even if they didn’t like guns, could support gun control or call for more restrictions based on the mountain of evidence that such laws do nothing to curb violence or criminal behavior?

To the contrary, studies such as “More Guns, Less Crime” provide ample evidence against gun control.

We chatted for a bit and I pondered my response. The point that my compatriot had missed was that gun control laws do indeed work, just not in the manner advertised to the masses. Legal restrictions on the ownership of certain arms and the requirements for registration and permitting establish a government sanctioned precedent that firearms and their ownership should indeed be constrained.

Keep in mind, however, that the state exempts its employees from all firearm restrictions. That aforementioned lawful precedent buttresses the hoplophobic argument or narrative that guns are inherently dangerous. The fewer guns available to the public, the safer everyone will be.
