Gun control won't stop violent crime. If a violent criminal can't get his hands on a gun, he'll use a knife (take the recent mass stabbing in China, for example).
So, we should outlaw knives too.
Of course, I suppose that one could just make a shiv or use a hammer or something instead. Guess we should outlaw those too. Yes! That's it. Let's outlaw all sharp objects. Blunt objects too. No more objects of any kind. They're just too dangerous.
Actually, the more I think about it, the more I realize that the weapon itself doesn't really matter. If someone is intent on murdering someone else, they'll find a way. We're treating the symptoms when we ought to be treating the disease. Let's outlaw murder. That'll put an end to this nonsense.
What's that you say? Murder is already illegal?! Color me surprised. I guess criminals don't care about the law.
