    Only some of the gun control was ended in 2004. We did gain background checks which are still used today.

    Clearly there are other factors. But the gun control stopped the crimes from rising. Look at how few of mass killings they have compared to us. Look at how few of police are killed in those countries. Gun control works. Right now our crime rates are rising from all the unrest due to guns. Our police shoot a lot of people, that doesn't happen in countries with gun control. But since our police are also shot often it happens here a lot. Now we have lots of unrest due to these shootings and an increasing crime rate. The primary cause is too many guns.

    Again, compare those stats to BEFORE the laws were passed and you have a point. Compare them to our stats and it is pointless - you are not controlling for other factors.

    Progressives were one SCOTUS vote away from eliminating the Second Anendment.

    Gorsuch would have joined the 4 other Progressive Fascists in deciding that there really was no individual right to bear arms.

    They never got to the extreme levels of ownership we have. They cut the problem off before it got too bad. Mass shootings is the obvious one as they are very rare in countries with gun control, but happen regularly here. You must believe policing effects crime. Well look at how many cops are killed each year, over 50. Countries with gun control are in the single digits. Those are cops taken off the street. And if 50 are killed there are many more taken off the street with injury. Now throw in all the people shot by police, those officers are always taken off the street for an investigation. Our policing is hurt because of our extreme levels of gun ownership. And also we obviously have much more armed criminals, a gun is empowering. Our criminals get that gun courage just like the legal gun owners. They are committing crimes they might not otherwise have to the courage for because guns are readily available. Look at our stats after the Bill Clinton crime bill and gun control, crime dropped dramatically. We also got background checks and crime remained lower. Now it is increasing with all the unrest caused by too many guns.
