Default Re: Rifles make up 4% of gun homicides...Handguns make up 72%

I still think that people who are looking to reduce gun ownership are really missing the problem (especially when they talk about assault rifles. Assault rifles are basically already banned with a couple exceptions)
First off, even if you somehow get rid of all the guns say like UK did, it doesn't mean much. The UK doesnt have gun crime but they have worse violent crime rates than the US.
If you take away a gun from everybody, it doesn't deter any crime. It just changes what is used when committing crimes which really does nothing. Maybe lower homicide rates, but that's if you took away guns altogether in the US, and that's plainly illegal.
