Actually . . . there's statistical evidence to suggest that more lax firearms laws lead to reduced violent crime rates. Check crime rate statistics for Kennesaw, GA when it instituted a local ordinance requiring that every head of household maintain a firearm back in the early '80s, and for the state of Florida when it instituted its "shall issue" policy for concealed carry permits.

Violent offenders tend to be more afraid of private citizens with guns than the police. "Getting rid of guns" doesn't seem to help with the crime rate at all.

As for the rest of your post, I like your observations, and tend to agree. Thanks for the kudos commentary.

edit: Please ignore my bizarre term substitution. I don't know why my fingers decided to type "kudos".
