Guns were banned in Chicago and D.C. but both cities had high gun crime. Gun stores don't exist in either city.

since most non white collar crimes are the result of socioeconomic tensions the best way to address it would be strong social safety nets not gun bans or gun restrictions

Where are you statistical date to support your contentions?
.
In VIRTUALLY =EVERY= place where 'gun bans' and 'restrictions' have been enforced, the violent crime rate SKYROCKETED.
.
Cases in point: Washington, D.C., New York City, Chicago, Ill., Los Angels, Ca., England, Wales, Canada, and Australia, to name but a few.
.
So, you were saying?

Name even one 'strong social safety net' which doesn't include gun bans.
.
Do be sure to speak of past history in this matter.
.
And BTW, according to yourself, of ~what~ would as 'strong social safety net' consist, precisely?

Constitutionally speaking, where is there =any= authority for that to exist?
.
You know: Article, Section, Paragraph/Clause?
.
Since the U.S. Constitution is all about ENUMERATED powers, i.e., those powers actually conferred upon the United States, then where in those enumerated powers is there any mention of so-called 'Medicare?'
