16. Yes, I did read it.

It contains nothing that alters the facts presented by the graph. You are protesting that if you ban guns people will still get them. Why yes, SOME people will. Some however won't. And some may get one only for a short time then get busted with it by police who now have the ability to do something about it before a theater full of people get shot instead of having to just ignore it because people are allowed to have a crazy arsenal in their house. And the ones that do get one and don't get busted with it may get one handgun rather than, say... half a dozen assault weapons and several thousand rounds of ammunition.

At first lots will be able to get one... because due to the very long time US gun policy has been the work of morons there are MILLIONS of them flooding the general population (and lots of people are getting shot? Shocking!). But you know what happens the longer people aren't allowed to go around buying them by the truckload, and the manufacturers scale back production, and they get taken out of circulation when discovered? I'm pretty sure you do. What happens is what you see up there on that graph in every other developed first world country on the planet.
