    People say "Criminals will always get their hands on guns." as if it's some unalterable force of nature. One thing working in society's favor is that most criminals aren't especially smart or industrious. Make guns harder to get and fewer criminals will have guns. Let's take this case as an example:

    Durham, N.C. -- Two girls, ages 14 and 12, and a 16-year-old boy have been charged in the shooting death of a 35-year-old man during a carjacking on Friday night.
    These aren't criminal masterminds who will get their hands on a gun no matter what obstacles society puts in their way. If guns were not cheap and ubiquitous, three idiot teenagers would find them very hard to obtain.
