  •  yes, gang violence will drop (0+ / 0-)

    if you actually control weapons.

    Other nations also have inner-city gangs, but their homicide rate is a fraction of ours.

    But to get to real control, we need a permeant national gun registry, thorough background checks (including family members), strict liability (every gun and every bullet ALWAYS has someone liable for it), and stiff penalties (5+ years in prison) for things like straw-man purchases.

    Do that, and gang violence will become vastly lower.
