    There ya go folks, the people snowflakes trust are saying gun control won't work:


    An analysis of thousands of gun control studies claims that just 63 of those studies found connections between more stringent gun control laws violent crime and suicide reductions.

    The non-profit RAND corporation spent two years and $1 million on the analysis, searching for evidence of benefit from gun control policies. RAND’s analysis looked to establish connections between gun policies and rates of homicide, suicide, self-defense gun use, hunting, and other categories. The vast majority of those categories went unaffected by legislation, however, according to NPR.

    “Most of the effects that we were looking for evidence on, we didn’t find any evidence,” Andrew Morral, who lead the analysis.

    How many times do I have to say it. We need thug control. Too many of these killers have records that demonstrate how dangerous they are, or what unhinged lunatics they are. Yet we keep giving them second, third, fourth chances...

    Lock up thugs for life, and treat the mentally ill. Why is that so difficult for us to do? Oh yea....regressives....

    The United States has 270 million guns and had 90 mass shooters from 1966 to 2012.

    No other country has more than 46 million guns or 18 mass shooters.

    You jumped in without doing the math. Multiply their numbers times five and they match the ones we have exactly.

    If anything, there will be more violence if the left has their way. Not only from criminals but eventually from the government when they gain full control over the people. It's happened every time in history and will happen again.
