If handguns were banned and confiscated, how did this criminal shoot the victim in the face?

    It patently does work. More people have been killed in the US already this year than will be killed in Australia all year.

    The US has around 5 gun deaths per 100k of population the Aussies have 1.

    Please explain how gun control isnt working in countries that are many times safer than the US.

    Gun control doesn't even work in dictatorships. Like Britain will become once Red Jeremy is PM.

    You are confusing murder with other gun crime. You don't have to pull the trigger on a gun to end a life if you rob, rape or brutalize someone. Gun crime is increasing in Australia and Britain but their murder rates are not going up.....but they have more crime using illegal guns...

    Gun control isn't working if there are more illegal guns getting into the hands of criminals....I have shown you the articles from British and Australian news sources that state that criminals are getting more guns illegally. That means their gun control laws are not working on criminals. You want to mix murder with gun control, and that doesn't work. A criminal with an illegal gun doesn't have to pull the trigger. You and your anti-gun buddies seem to think that a criminal with a gun must pull the trigger and end the life of the victim...that isn't the case.

    And as I keep showing you...... more guns does not equal more crime...... 26 years of experience in the United States shows that this is true....more Americans own and carry guns...our gun murder rate went down 49%...our gun crime rate went down 75%....our violent crime rate went down 72%. Britain banned and confiscated guns...you gun crime rate in London went up 42%....across England and Wales in 2016 23%, in 2017 16%....it is increasing, not going down... the British police have stated they cannot stop the increasing flow of illegal guns into Britain, which is exactly what Gun Control Failure is.....a failure to stop criminals from getting illegal guns....

    Oh Lord. The obvious assumption is that if we adopt crazy US laws then our murder rates will multiply five fold. We would have to be on crack to want that.

    Our gun murder rate went down 49% as more Americans own and carry guns over the last 26 years...your gun crime rate went up 42% in London, your capitol.....on an island. Your police state they can't stop the flow of illegal guns into your country, and gun crime is going up, not down....you are doing it wrong, and it is going to get worse for you.

    It will be worse......since your people won't have guns to defend themselves.... as the U.S. entered the 1960s our violent crime went through the roof....until the 1990s.... you are now entering a period of violence....and you won't have the option of arming yourselves to stop it.
