Normally I hate touchy subjects, but I'll speak for once.....

My thought is even if they DID instill gun control, it still would not help the gun rate. Think about it, look at something like Drugs, something illegalized unless in the possession of a licenced handler (eg. Law official performing a persecution of and offender handling/using aforementioned substance). Basically, what I'm getting at is if we were to ban guns, it could and more than likely would create a black market for them, which would then just make them even MORE easily accessable to hooligans because of the nature of the business transaction, as nobody on either side will tell or it's off with their heads from the law. Then we'll have a whole new problem stemming from it. I'd rather a few fools have a magnum they got at a gun shop in a case where I can go to the same store and get a weapon to protect myself and my family from said hooligan, as opposed to getting carted away by the police for protecting myself from some yahoo who came in my window to point a rifle at me and steal my computer, all because I bought a weapon from the man in a trenchcoat down the street. Don't even get me into the pollitical part of things, think of Hussien or Castro, that's all I'll say there.

Firstly, before someone else says it in a less gentle way, on these fora, necroposting == bad. This thread has been dead for over four months - let it rest in peace.
