The UK banned handguns, violent crime(including gun crimes) skyrocketed afterwards. Banning them wont work, it never has, it never will. Look at prohibition. The violence associated with illegal alcohol sales DECREASED after prohibition ended. As someone else said, its the culture in the US. Want violent crimes to decrease, change the culture.


Wait. You're saying crime associated with illegal alcohol sales decreased after it was no longer illegal?

ASTOUNDING!!!

Oh, and link your data plz.

Well that's 100% completely undeniably wrong. But I will await the source information as I would love to be proved wrong by facts.

I'm a gun owner and I agree more control is needed... always laugh at the 2nd ammendment argument, don't think me and my pistol would be much of a match for an apache helicoptor.

....The LA Times had an article about the The European disdain for America violence but shouldn't spend too much time congratulating themselves. In 2000 the rate at which people where assaulted was higher in England, Scotland, Finland, Denmark and Sweden than in The United States. In the decade since England banned all private possessions of gun the number of gun crimes has gone up.Some of the worst examples of mass gun violence has occurred in Europe from students and teachers killed in Germany, 14 legislators shot in Switzerland to 8 city council members being shot outside of Paris.

Just recently a taxi driver in Cumbria, England killed 12 people and wounded 11.






2009
http://www.telegraph...-of-Europe.html

Analysis of figures from the European Commission showed a 77 per cent increase in murders, robberies, assaults and sexual offenses in the UK since Labour came to power.

The total number of violent offenses recorded compared to population is higher than any other country in Europe, as well as America, Canada, Australia and South Africa



2009
http://www.dailymail...l#ixzz1P6LhtqHx



The figures, compiled from reports released by the European Commission and United Nations, also show:

  • The UK has the second highest overall crime rate in the EU.
  • It has a higher homicide rate than most of our western European neighbours, including France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
  • The UK has the fifth highest robbery rate in the EU.
  • It has the fourth highest burglary rate and the highest absolute number of burglaries in the EU, with double the number of offences than recorded in Germany and France.

Looking for more recent infos.
It's not as clear cut as BOTH sides want to make it.

Should I be able to buy a rocket launcher ? No
Should I be able to buy most Semi-Auto firearms. Yep.
Should things be put in place to keep crazies/felons from having fire arms? Yes
Should that infringe on my right to have firearms ? Nope

Also that first link is a weak example b/c it is from a blog. So ignore that if you wish. Has some factoids but it doesnt share sources sadly.

A fluff piece vs
Firearm Crime Stats

There were 7,024 offences in England and Wales in which non-air weapon firearms were reportedly used, a 13% decrease on the previous year, continuing the general decline since 2005/06.
There were 4,203 recorded crimes in which air weapons were reportedly used during 2010/11, a fall of 15% compared with the previous year and 70% below the peak recorded in 2002/03.
Chart 1 shows the trend in total firearm offences recorded by the police since 1969. The number of offences generally rose from the late 1990s to a peak of 24,094 offences in 2003/04. The number of firearm offences has fallen in each year since then with 11,227 offences recorded in 2010/11, 13% lower than the previous year and 53% below the peak of 2003/04.
