Fresh, you need to understand the reasons for owning firearms. Some people own them for hunting. Others for target shooting. Some own them for protection. More gun control laws will not keep "outlaws" from using them in criminal activity. Why would a criminal worry about breaking another law?
Also, would it be better if people were pushed out of 15th floor windows? They are just as dead.
This is why I suggest that gun ownership should come with the provision that a gun-safety class is required.
Responsible gun-owners do not need to be controlled. Irresponsible gun-owners should not be allowed to own them in the first place.
