The murder rate by whites in the United States is lower than it is in...Denmark. Now as for the murder rate (and crime rate in general) by those who are not white in the United States, that's a different story.
We need fool control, not tool control. That means Third Worlder control. That's what prisons are for, not to mention the death penalty, which is not a deterrent but those who are dead aren't going to ever kill again.
Firearms are just a tool, and all tools are amoral - they have no morals at because morality doesn't apply to tools. A pistol will lie there for a million years and never jump up and shoot anyone.
The now-obsolete phrase, "Saturday Night Special" referred to cheap handguns that blacks used to shoot each other on the weekends. It was popular God knows how many decades ago.
I used to know a black guy, completely innocent, who ended up getting one of his testicles shot off. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
I knew another, a cab driver, who got shot in the back of the head at point-blank range by a 15-year-old black kid, who got 30 years for his trouble. The driver still has the .22 slug in his brain. The only problem he had with it is that sometimes his eyes would water copiously. I saw that myself.
I once had to pull a pistol on about six teenagers who were threatening me in the street. It was amazing how fast they ran. And that was in an area where in the '50s little boys would pull their little red wagons down the street on Sunday morning and sell newspapers to those sitting on their front porches. But that was at a time where there were no Third Worlders in the area.
I've never known anyone who was anti-firearm who had any experience in life.
By the way, "assault" as in "assault rifle"...."assault" in a verb, not a noun.
