Sanity Restored...In Brazil
Another nation today realized that banning legal gun ownership doesn't reduce crime, as it is incredibly easy to purchase a gun on the black market. In fact, most gun-control laws have little or no effect on crime at all, the Brady guns laws the best example of this. If you're a criminal, why on earth would you buy a gun from a legitimate gun store?
There is one way to reduce crimes; one that works and doesn't take guns out of the hands of citizens: Use a gun while committing a felony, you've just earned yourself a mandatory 20 year addition to your sentance. You can bet the family farm that gun violence will go down.
