"Criminals" don't just reach into thin air and pull out a gun.

You have obviously missed the demonstration of how firearms *do* fall like lawn darts from the sky into the hands of criminals intent on doing evil deeds. (Never, ever into the hands of someone who then combines impulse with opportunity, and perhaps alcohol, and commits an evil deed that would not have been committed absent firearm; nooo, that never happens.)

... Hmm. Come to think of it, so have I.

You might be interested in the story I reported here, about how a shipment of many firearms that were purchased in Canada in order to be smuggled in the US was stopped because the Cdn firearms registry system detected the anomalous purchasing activity:

how the Cdn firearms registry protects USAmericans

-- and specifically post # 37, when, after listening to all the brouhaha about how the firearms destined illegally for the US from Canada were just not anything I should worry my head about, so old and unworrisome were they, I pointed out that the system would have worked the same for any kind of firearm ... and just got no response.

Criminals are just going to get guns no matter what you do, they chant. Well, criminals in the US would just have a hell of a time getting them from Canada ... or Australia ... or the UK ... . Would'n'cha love to see how that thin air plan works out for them?
