Almost all arguments and statistics demanding gun control are skewed in some way or another (i.E., comparing "gun deaths" in the US to other countries), and don't take into account the fact that the USA has the 3rd largest population in the world, so raw crime numbers will naturally be higher.
In addition, Swiss gun laws allow their citizens to own assault rifles and handguns too, and they have far lower crime and murder rates than most other European nations. Switzerland is therefore proof positive that a high percentage of civilian firearm ownership does NOT correlate to more crime. Period.
It is bad enough that we have the government trying to take our guns away, what do you think will happen if it becomes all the harder to obtain a rifle? The crooked will always get guns no matter laws come up, let us good people protect ourselves , we can't be defenseless
