    It may.

    But it won't bring it down by even 5% I'd wager, having looked closely at all those FBI stats for the last few years.

    I think you might bring the holicide rate down by 3-4%, but you'd have almost no effect on the suicide rate... And a negligible effect on the injury rate I'd guess.

    So.

    Nibbling around the edges. Which is why I believe what I believe.

      and any drop is better than none wouldn't you say?

      Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?

        I want to save AS MANY people as possible.

        But

        The larger questions are:

        What's Obama's goal?
        What's your goal?

        And for bonus points:

        What would have to happen, legislatively, to achieve your goals?
