Gun Control Doesn't Work

Gun Control Doesn't Work
By Jeff Knox August 3, 2010

If firearms were indeed as inherently dangerous as gun control advocates suggest, there should be millions of crimes, murders, suicides, and accidents involving firearms each year, and those numbers should be escalating since the total number of firearms and firearms owners have risen substantially over the past few years.

In reality, numbers of firearms related crime and accidents have steadily dropped while gun sales have gone through the roof and more states have liberalized laws dealing with the carry of arms in public.

Gun control laws only impact those who obey them – the law-abiding. There is no logic – or evidence – to support restrictions on the good guys.

Rest of story at:

Gotta give you an "A" for effort in trying to abide by the new rules! Here's how it should have looked:

First sentence was from one paragraph, and the rest from the second paragraph. All of it should have been in quotes, as that is what you did: You quoted an article.

Here's where you went wrong: You didn't provide a brief summation of the rest of the article, nor did you tell us why it matters to anyone at TFL.

All of that aside, this is posted in the Law & Civil Rights section, so you should have been able to link in something about the law, or civil rights. Barring that, it may have been a good discussion over in General Discussion area... If it stayed out of the political arena (which I doubt).

Now don't take this wrong, just because I'm locking this thread. Feel free to open another thread, using the above as your guide.
