OK, then maybe we should go the other extreme. Lets take Kennesaw, GA- http://www.freerepublic.com/fo... or http://www.wnd.com/2007/04/411...
Every head of household is required to own a gun. Their crime rates, including murder, are down across the board. Morton, IL that took the opposite route banned all Guns, and has had increased crime rates.
Then there is Switzerland, with the majority of households owning a gun. They have a murder rate of .7 (.52 for murder by guns).
So maybe the answer is to have everyone trained and own a gun. After all, everything is on the table.
Or maybe we should look into curing our social ills. Removing guns from law abiding citizens does not remove them from criminals and case studies show that it emboldens criminals. I agree, we need to do something, taking away guns is not the answer.
