But....but.....but......guns KILL people! We gotsta get rid of all GUNS, like now!
Heck yes they kill people, it's one of the things a gun can do when applied, duh. Criminals know this very, very well. That's why they want guns to be out of the hands of law abiding, it makes it less dangerous to do crime and easier to kill you in the process of it. It is way easier to shoot and kill an unarmed person than it is when they are packing as well.

I like this graphic, but it doesn't speak to the bigger issue, which is that without guns we are even less free than we are now.
