The anti-gun psycology still escapes me, especially when there are cities like Chicago, which despite some of the strictest gun control laws on the books anywhere in the nation, is still experiencing rampant gun-related crimes.
I see how the antis will point to their ongoing gun problem as being 'imported', and how some believe that in order to truly eradicate their gun problem, guns must be banned nation wide. The problem I have is that I dont understand how the anti-gun proponent continues to be blind to the premise that it is not the gun that is the real underlying problem, but the person using the gun with malicious intent as being the problem.

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.
