More Guns Equal More Crime?

By far the most firearms-enabled deaths come from government itself: war, genocide, and simple murder of dissidents and others by the State.

"Gun control" that would actually make us safer would be to remove guns from the hands of those working for the State; British bobbies (cops) and many small-town cops even in the US once did their jobs without carrying guns -- and people respected them for that, and actually felt some affection for them. When the hired help is armed to the teeth but the EMPLOYERS are denied weapons -- BY the hired help, in the form of politicians and the armed agents who enforce the laws -- then you have a serious and very dangerous situation.
