      Actually, if you do a quick search states with more lax gun laws have more deaths based on guns. So, your assumption would prove out to be correct.

        Not saying there are not counter points, there usually are, but Chicago to me is always a bad example when you can just drive a short ways to Indiana and get a gun without worrying about any of those laws and bringing it back.

          It is one of the major issues with expecting States to do much of anything. Patchwork laws have major issues. Folks always complain about them but depending on the issue at hand there are major advantages to having a baseline.

    I am not sure that guns = safety is quite as simple as that.



    Quote:
    Does alcohol = safety?
    Do cars = safety?
    Does pot = safety?
    Does any of a myriad of things we expect in this country = safety?

    I think you can bring it up as a factor/weight in if guns are good overall. But not sure saying they arnt always safe is a slam dunk case to end having guns...if you look at alchohol statistics or opiods etc...the stats are horrifying.


The topic is more complex than that, but I'll point out that nobody claims that alcohol, cars or pot will improve your safety (quite the opposite actually). The gun proponents, however, do make that argument in a way or another.
