Today, the crime rate is lower in most cities - lowest as 1960s level than in 1980s and 1990s.So let me ask you this, do you think the city streets are safer today than they were 30 years ago, do you think kids going to school are safer than they were 30 years ago? If people had to spend the money to get a real background check we probably would have a lot less people on the streets with guns who shouldn't have them.
The assault gun ban that passed in 1994 didn't prevent Columbine shooting.
If you want gun control law to be 100% effective - it means government has to disarm and confiscate all firearm and must be established when US was born.
Japan, Korea and China are already established but in US, not going happen.
As pro-gun, I loathe NRA because they support censorship for video game and media.
