Do these people who are afraid of urban gun violence really think new gun control laws will deter urban gun violence. Just take a look at the shooters, not the off beat sicko who is responsible for a public active shooter incident but the ones responsible for the day to day gun violence. Do you really think the thugs are going to go oh me, they outlawed it, now the illegal stuff I was going to do is more illegal I better leave my gun at home. You are nuts if you think the criminals will pay attention to new laws. The very things that make you afraid are the very things that make it necessary not to infringe on a person's right to defend themselves.

No question about it, we need a regulation that makes it illegal to shoot someone.
