The July/August issue of American Handgunner (AH) magazine shows what happens when you take guns away from law-abiding citizens, thereby leaving them only in the hands of criminals.
AH does this in a way that lets the facts speak for themselves:
6.2 Million (number of M1 carbines manufactured)
620,000 (number of M3 “grease guns” manufactured)
2.7 Million (population of Chicago, IL.)
2.15 Million (population of Houston, TX.)
0 (number of gun stores in Chicago.)
1,500 (number of legal places to buy a gun in Houston).
[500 to 532] (Homicides in Chicago in 2012)
 (Homicides in Houston in 2012)
The lesson–More guns, less crime.
