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.)?

Might increase initially. Criminals will be emboldened and act with impunity. Robbery, theft and assault will increase in the nicer communities with law abiding citizens. Homicide is not the only crime that degrades a society.

I think you're just looking at it from a body count standpoint. I bet most homicides are criminals killing other criminals, and that's a lot harder to give asht about.
