so what've we learned today? not shit really, other than damn, the mid 90s was violent.
You don't need to see graphs, data, studies, just common sense, if the crime really got much worse after the ban on guns, after 15 years do you think the ban would still be on? So 15 years wouldn't be enough to realize if some new law or policy had a positive or negative effect? How does someone justify 15 years of negative affect of some new policy and that policy still be in effect?
