the violence & deaths with guns has to stop. the gang bangers wouldn't be quite the bad asses they think they are if they didn't have guns in their hands.

I understand where you are coming from, (ie. ban the guns, and there won't be any to worry about) but its not that simple. There are literally millions of firearms in the United States and you'll never be able to confiscate them all. People have a right to defend themselves, and most people use firearms for sport or for hunting. Besides, you are more likely to be killed in an automobile related accident than by a firearm. So lets ban automobiles too.

People are uninformed. Chicago gangsters have illegal guns... they arent giving them back is stricter gun laws are implemented. So a law abiding gun owner who wants to NOT break the law, has to get rid of their gun. So when the gangsters with illegal guns threaten their families, there is nothing to protect themselves with
