Question:

If guns were made illegal in the US (note: this doesn't mean that there are no guns, just that they are illegal, except for police and military), do you believe that the number of deaths due to assault (that is, not due to suicide or accidents) will increase, decrease, or stay roughly the same?

Please write "Increase", "Decrease", or "Same" in the subject line of your reply, and feel free to elaborate in the body of the reply.

There is NO data or evidence to indicate that people who use guns to kill....would kill using another method IF guns were not readily available.

This especially applies to the large scale mass murder shooting-spree massacres.

Killing with a GUN is clean, sterile, easy, distant, disassociated ...whereas killing with a knife, shovel, bat or iron bar...is far more challenging and psychologically very different..
