I'm going to stop you right there....I think that overall this country could learn a few things from places like New York City and California in regards to there gun control laws...
New York City and places in California like LA have very strict gun control laws. But, wait, gun crimes are still pretty high there.
Now lets look at, say, where I live. A moderate sized city in Utah, the state that recently got a perfect 0 on the Brady scale. For the whole state gun crimes hit the news maybe 2 or 3 times a week. I can't even remember the last time someone got shot in my specific city.
