What they want, if you're referring to proponents of gun control, is an end or reduction of criminal gun violence.

Unfortunately for gun owners, other means of reducing crime and gun violence are even more difficult to pass than gun control.

Politicians would rather take all our guns than really expand access to mental health care. And that's just the most obvious alternative to gun control.

How about ending the war on drugs and treating abuse as a public health issue rather than a criminal problem? It would reduce gun violence here and most likely in the countries that produce illegal drugs. That won't happen, too many powerful people make way to much money on that war to get it stopped.

Fighting for gun control is a net positive. It's a simple message that has a clear enemy, and doesn't effect most of their political base.

So there ya go, enjoy making fun of gun control advocates as they continue to strengthen their position.
