Good points all around. Gun control is a very difficult issue, and one that I personally can't really make up my mind about. I do agree that gun laws are not going to prevent criminals from commiting crimes with guns, but I think that ignores the fact that there are many legal gun-owning idiots. We've all seen the stories about morons (and /or their children) and guns, and the consequences.
Gun control laws probably have these people in mind, as well. FWIW.
Very complicated issue, though.
