    By looking at the following link...

    Digging into China

    ...I'd say no. Weather gun control or non nuclear proliferation pacts people as well as governments will not disarm themselves for fear of hostile human/government aggression. I must ask, does the above link prove my point???

    The reality in the US is that in those locals with less restrictions crime goes or stays down while those with the most restrictive laws crime is much higher.

    It doesn't.. The Second Amendment is just as viable as the First or the Fifth...

    The Windsor/Detroit comparison provides the classic example of 2 entirely different approaches to handguns.

    - Windsor with approximately 30% of Detroit's population has just experienced its 1st homicide since late September 2009 - a period of 26 months.

    - Detroit, which is within walking distance of Windsor, averages almost 1 homicide every day.

    - Windsor is a city that has strict handgun rules, few gun shops and a population where gun owners are few and far between. Ontario police say restrictive gun laws are an important factor in reducing the number of homicides.

    - Canadians are willing to pay higher taxes to provide a better financed public education and social welfare system which has resulted in less economic disparity and "a kinder, gentler society."

    If by "work" you mean gun control keeps firearms out of the hands of law abiding citizens so only the law breakers have guns, then yes, it works. But hey, the police are always armed so remember, when seconds count, the cops are just minutes away. Good luck with that.

    Gun control has nothing to do with that statistic, as people would like to think, imo . It all has to do with the Canadians realizing that they are all in it together, and so they try to help the poor lift themselves up. Here we have the wealthy trying their best to keep the poor down until violence erupts.

    also compared to Detroit, Windsor is pretty nice.....eliminate the gun violence by the Gang Bangers in Detroit and this article would be pointless.....
