John, that is a pretty good point. I'm not really sure how well you could convince gun control proponents of that concept, but that seems like solid logic which, as Chuck pointed out, most gun control advocates don't really understand; they would rather hear ill-conceived emotional outbursts. I'm sure that for every argument we can think of, regardless of how soundly lodged in statistics or facts it is, there is an opposing one built upon misconceptions.
As previously stated, I'm not for this kind of illogical thinking (gun control); I'm just trying to think about it from both angles to look for holes that can be exploited with undesirable results. I know I don't want to lose my current or potential future firearms because of the bad deeds of a few evil or insane men.
