Even if they banned them do you think that gun owners would just willingly hand their guns over? Collecting all the guns across America could prove to be a bit of a problem. Plus this would hurt registered gun owners. They would have to give up their firearms, but in most crimes involving guns, the guns were not acquired legally. Those who illegally possess a gun are not going to turn it in.

This is the same reason I'm not for it, as well as, the keen possibility of the unregistered gun circulation increasing.

Meaning more crimes with less chances of catching the criminal.

If the gun isn't registered, then it makes tracing it back to the shooter impossible.

The banning of guns , would not serve it's purpose.

stats around the world support the solution of banning guns. From what you've said, you probably know this, as rather than disputing this as many do, you've instead jousted at immediate difficulties. Do you really think these initial issues of people not always following what would in that case be the law outweigh the long term effectiveness that banning guns would have in saving lives?

No, I think a better solution would be to keep the guns and ban the Liberals.

Ban the liberals? Apparently someone I know is liberal and NOT a crazy murderer? It's like Trump's plan to deport all Muslims.

No! The 2nd amendment gives the right to bear arms, surely including guns. Some completely innocent people have guns and use them legally. The real threat is the bad people that get them, and kill someone.

the real threat are the bad people? and homicides? most deaths caused by guns are suicides, so people killing other people isn't the main problem here. How about your definition of what makes a bad person? Find the right cause and just about any righteous person will resort to violence as their solution.

If you ban guns, the suicidal people won't be able to kill themselves- unless they have another weapon. Banning guns wouldn't solve the problem, and the same point about homicides. And your'e saying ANYONE could be shooting bullets at innocent people?

Rather............

People who think guns should be banned should be banned!

Banning people on political belief? You just can't do that. That's kind of what the US is all about...

Banning guns for the deaths of innocent people would be equivalent to us banning air travel after the 9/11 attacks.

The question is if guns were banned in America would any criminal abide by such a law ?

The Progressive Leftist are only concerned with gun bans for the law abiding citizens !They will never address the guns in the hands of criminals ! Take a look at the 2016 Murder Rate in Chicago. Where is the outrage from the Progressive Leftist ?

Well Ben Shapiro says gun-access should be given to people having proper background checks and those who can be trusted, and I kinda agree with him; Background and religion check should be made before giving access otherwise not
