    Why banning assault rifles won't reduce gun violence. Adam Winkler, gun-grbber, LAT

    Yet we already know that banning assault weapons won't reduce gun crime or deaths. Worse, the bans may make it harder to enact more effective gun control laws.

    Winkler is a hard core anti that tries to couch his arguments in moderate language.

    Promoting assault weapons bans will confuse the public, help ‘strengthen the handgun restriction lobby’

    Keep these frank statements in mind if you hear people wondering why some allegedly “alarmist,” “nutty,” or “paranoid” gun rights supporters worry that bans on so-called “assault weapons” are just an attempt to help promote broader bans (such as on handguns).

    Statistically speaking, banning arms of any type leads to increases in violence.

    We MUST remember we're not just talking about "gun" violence, here. When England banned the private ownership of guns, gun violence most certainly did drop. It is true they have less than 100 gun murders each year.

    Their overall rate of violence, however (rape, stabbings, beatings, etc.) nearly tripled, and remains 2.5 times higher in the U.K. than it is here in the U.S.

    Do not let the anti-gunners trick you into saying "gun violence" when the real issue is overall violence. Guns in the hands of good guys stop bad guys from committing violence of all kinds.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.
