Guns Should not be Banned Banning guns does not help with assaults, murders, and home invasions relating guns, it would open a huge industry for smuggling weapons, and the common citizen would not be able to protect themselves against harm.
Banning weapons does not help. For example once the gun ban in australia went into effect armed robberies went up 69%, assaults with guns went up 28%, gun murders went up 19%, and home invasions went up 21%, making Australia a less safe place to live. All the while the major criminals (drug dealers, killers, burglars, and kidnappers ) are thriving. This is not what we America needs to happen.
Banning weapons would open a huge industry for smuggling weapons. According Stephen Eggleston gun laws only work to people who listen to the laws.And just like drug dealers people create black market gun shops. This is where people make guns and sell them on a black market and making tons of money. The less the weapons the more the sales is what the criminals think. The same thing happened when America banned alcohol. People from detroit would drive a boat over to canada and fill the boat with alcohol and bring it back and sell it on the black market. The reason to ban weapons is to keep guns off from the street.
Banning weapons is not a good idea according Wayne LaPierre “The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun”. Likewise In Britain when the gun ban law came into effect in 1996 the murder rate increased drastically by increasing 50% . The only way that Britain stopped all of the killings is they increased the number of police officers.
