50. I'm under the impression that convictions are only loosely correlated to crime.
Do you honestly believe that everybody who commits a crime is convicted?

Idiot #1 inherits a pistol from his father. He tries to rob a store. He gets caught in the store, and is arrested.
Idiot #2 buys a gun at a gun show. He commits 300 convenience store robberies, and is never caught.

Oh, look, the convict didn't get his gun from a show, therefore, shows aren't a problem!

Point being: Convictions have absolutely nothing, whatsoever, to do with crime.
