Possibly the only issue I even come close to being conservative on, I have a hard time picking sides on this issue. I think handguns are pretty silly, since they are designed to be concealed. But long guns are safe, reliable, accurate, and allow all the benefits of handguns (aside from being able to hide them).

Problem is, I've seen what happens when prohibition is activated: you end up with the type of problems associated with the war on drugs. They will be created by someone else, somewhere else, and be smuggled in anyway. Then we are left with the only outlaws have guns scenario.

It depends where you look. in Japan, there are extremely tight gun laws, and seemingly few homicide by gun rates. That said, Switzerland is the exact opposite, extremely lenient gun laws (Hell, the Swiss government give people automatic rifles and train them on how to use them) and have few homicide rates.

With that in mind, the Yakuza are notorious, whereas you wouldn't be too scared of a Swiss mobster.
