Thomas Sowell On Gun Control

Do Gun-Control Laws Control Guns?

If, as gun-control advocates claim, gun-control laws really do control guns and save lives, there is nothing to prevent repealing the Second Amendment any more than there was anything to prevent repealing the Eighteenth Amendment that created Prohibition.

But, if the hard facts show that gun-control laws do not actually control guns, but instead lead to more armed robberies and higher murder rates after law-abiding citizens are disarmed, then gun-control laws would be a bad idea, even if there were no Second Amendment and no National Rifle Association.
The "other side" has framed this debate, which we need to stop anwering. We need to debate on equal ground... That is, we need to frame the debate ourselves, whether the "other side" likes it or not (and be assured, they won't like it one iota)!

Larry Correia (Correia lays it out), Kontradictions (Very good article on AWB written by a Democrat!) and now Thomas Sowell are showing us the way.
