Re: Police Murder Fleeing Man at Alabama Mall
How would we make sure there was no black market or that some were hiding weapons? In other words, how specifically could all guns be accounted for should we vote to take them all away?

You wouldn’t do it overnight - it’d be a process, with a load of bumps along the way, and an imperfect end-point, where, yes, there would be some criminals with illegal guns.

But it’s a process that has been shown to work - in Australia, for example.

And the end result of some criminals having guns is one we have here in the UK, and we have massively fewer gun deaths per 1,000 head of population (a deficit which is not accounted for by an increased number of other methods of violent death).

It doesn’t need to be perfect to be massively better.


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?
