    i like the vid that was posted in the main forum. Said over 100 studies were done independently and showed that not a single gun regulation has ever actually caused a reduction in violent crimes.

    Hell yeah they work. Sure, criminals will always have access to guns, but just think, if those victims had had guns of their own and had been able to return fire, it would've been a war zone; bystanders getting shot, cars getting damaged, windows getting blown out...we've all seen the movies, we know what happens when the bad guys AND the good guys are both packing heat.

    Yes because the existing ones clearly aren't enough. We need to make it super duper illegal.

    since we all know what happens when good guys are armed, will you provide some evidence that agrees?

    In all the movies I've seen, the bad guys usually fire about 100 rounds (without reloading) at the good guys. Of course they always miss the star. Some extras might get hit but who cares. Then the good guy returns fire and kills 3 guys with one shot.
