    To attempt to answer the issue of inner-city gun violence with "gun control" is an exercise in futility. The gun grabbers have no idea where the guns are, how many guns there are and in whose hands they are. Does any rational person think that without totalitarian controls guns can be kept out of the hands of the gangs and gun dealers who comprise the perpetrators of most of this violence?
    I often see this argument from people who live in the black and white world of most guns rights absolutists.  Here's the thing you need to wrap your head around: A reduction in the number of guns available doesn't have to be 100% effective for it to be effective.  Yes there will be guns in the hands of bad guys and guys who are good guys until the moment they become bad guys, but fewer guns means fewer guns available for people who want to use them for harm.
