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.

Bonus question:

What about injuries (cuts, broken bones, etc.)?

Where you have widespread availibility of guns the number of violent assaults increase for the simple reason that any two-bit-wimp can be a tough guy by standing at a 100 paces from his "opponent" and raise his wimp arm and "punch" his opponent ................. with a bullet from a gun.

Many people you hear say "I avoid violent confrontation" only do so because really they don't have the physical ability to cope with such confrontation. Give them a gun and suddenly they become Rambo! They can then go around "sorting out" all the people they dislike.
