Yes so that limits the number of guns to a very few percent of the population.<quoted text>
You don't get it.
Criminals & psychos will get guns whether or not they're legal or readily available.
How do you know that Lanza wouldn't have used a car to do the same crime had he not had guns?
Cars are deadly, they kill people, not the drivers.
Cars are weapons....
Then there is no incentive for criminals to use firearms unless they know similar firearms will be used in response. The punishment (certainly in most of Europe) for an offence committed using a firearm tend to be 4/5 or more times harsher than the same crime without the firearm. Armed robbery 14 to 21 years. Unarmed burglary 2 to 5 years, unarmed housebreaking, a slap on the hand and perhaps a fine if the perp can afford it.(Up to you to look up the difference between burglary and housebreaking if you are interested)
The psychos exist whether the potential victim has a gun or not and owning gun will certainly be no deterrent to a psycho.
Stupid comparison you moron, cars ďcanĒ be used as a weapon, in the hands of someone with a mind to use it as such, they are however manufactured as transport aides. Just as a building brick can be used as a weapon in the wrong hands, it is manufactured as a building material. Hell even a babble can be used as a weapon if you hit someone with it, it seems itís caused you considerable brain damage.
Guns on the other hand are manufactured explicitly as weapons, specifically to cause physical damage, mutilation and/or death to your opponent. They not manufactured to keep you warm and cosy while driving from point a to point b or to deflect the wind in such a civilised human way or to offer spiritual contentment to those who need it
Why are you so think?
