So .. is there an acceptable level of violent deaths for you?? As long as someone can only kill one person at a time with a knife or cricket bat is that OK as long as they can't kill two or five using a gun?? Are you willing start regulating knifes and cricket bats also, because those have been used by crazy people to kill also. Don't laugh, several years ago a group of doctors in the UK suggested that long, pointed kitchen knives should be banned because they are plenty of other alternatives and they tend to be the knives used most often when killing someone with a knife. Just as with firearms in the UK, they didn't ban them all at the same time. It started with just one type.
Your entire argument is that if you take something away, it can't be used anymore by crazy, bad, or angry people. That is a logical argument. So, why don't we just round up everyone that we think is crazy, bad, or angry and put only them into jail. That should stop the violence also, shouldn't it??? How about a law that says if you threaten someone, you are put into jail for 20 years to make sure you can't. What if we pass a law that says that if someone is scary, they also get put into jail. How about we pass a law that says the nice, quiet guy that lives next door, never bothers anyone, always says hi, is also thrown into jail just in case he goes nuts.
I can think of all kinds of ways to end all kinds of violence that would also work that are equally as moronic as removing all guns. Since you probably don't read any real news, you probably don't read about how daily, people all over the United States stop violence because they are armed. It does happen, a lot more than idiots like Rupurt Murdoch and Everytown want you to know.
The price that is paid by removing all guns it can't be used by the large portion of the population either that enjoy using it, already have it, and sometimes depend on it. You are willing to deny large segments of the population something they find useful and safe simply because you don't use it, aren't affected by not having it, are scared by it, and have a (false) sense of security because it's not around.
Free free to not own a gun. I have no problems with you not owning a gun.
I have problems with whiny little college kids thinking they have some sort of magical insight into the world and try to justify taking something away from me that has never been used in an illegal manner simply because they are scared of it, probably because they have never even shot a gun before in their life.
Fortunately, I didn't have such overly-protective parents and learned to shoot as a teen and discovered how much fun it was putting holes in pieces of paper 500 yards away.
