If it isn't guns then it is knives.
Even if you decided to ban guns in this country, how would you enforce it. Illinois had a ban on guns, yet if you looked at the statistics for Chicago you would think they had a ban on not owning a gun. I suspect that gun restrictions are much more meaningful when the murder rates are much less. You do that, lower the murder rate, then we'll talk. Good luck with that.
