That's not why I do. Of all the ideas passed in 93, when the homicide rate started trending down, only BG Checks have been in place for the full duration of that decline.
The largest single factor in the decline in crime, including violent crime, in this country over the course of years has been longer prison sentences. One criminal commits many crimes. Put him or her behind bars and the crime rate goes down. Under pressure to reduce the prison population under federal court order, California is now seeing their crime rate rise. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Governm...wn-realignment
