Criminals love weapon control.
It makes their jobs safer.
Those who trade liberty for security have neither.
When you ban weapons the result is only the police and the criminals have weapons and you punish all the law abiding citizens.
Criminals don't go turn their guns in when bans come into effect, period.
Anyone can go to the nearest scumbag area with hookers, pimps, and drugs, and go buy an illegal gun any day of the week.
When bans went into effect in Australia and the UK crime rates on home invasion and elderly beatings went up.
All you do when you? create bans is make criminals jobs easier and the statistics prove it.
You can't trade freedom for security because if you do you have neither.
The Difference Between Fact & Opinion:
More young people used guns in violent crimes in Canada in 2006, part of an increase seen over the past four years, a Statistics Canada report released says.
Police forces reported 8,105 victims of violent gun crime over the year, ranging from assault to robbery and homicide. Two-thirds of the crimes involved handguns.
The report notes that firearm-related crimes overall have remained stable from 2002 to 2006.
Seeing that 95% of knife crimes are committed with full tang knives, such as machetes and kitchen utility knives.
The most common knife by far is the folding knife and they fit into a 5% minority.
It is statistically not valid to ban any folding knife because they are not used in crimes.
Perhaps banning kitchen knives and making it so only chefs and issuing permits for kitchen knives needs to be done instead of punishing people who use pocket folding knives as tools.
If they wish to use statistics they should use them correctly
