33. Freedom, liberty, and equality for all
"I believe that the effort had the potential to make those communities safer."

The only thing those efforts have done is to ensure that only the criminal population is armed and able to run with free reign over an unarmed populace.

"The escalation in proliferation is mostly from other states who refuse to impose the same ban."

Hmm.. cocaine is prohibited everywhere in the United States, yet I bet you could get it within 10 minutes if you wanted. Strange how the black market works isn't? Much like the regular market, if there is demand, a supply will follow.

"You think it is funny that the effort is mostly unsuccessful?"

No, I think it's tragic and disgraceful that people will blindly follow a blatant campaign against inanimate objects based on lies and attempt to withhold the fundamental right to self defense from the weak and the poor.
