Uh no. We've been over this like 10 times now. Gun control is the same thing as drug control - a failure before it even begins. You increase the standard of living: - Reduce the spending that goes into the U.S. military so that you can - Invest in mental healthcare research, advocacy, and social work. - Increase spending in the education sector so teachers have the resources and financial incentive to perform better. - Produce more outreach programs (similar to those in inner cities where police work with communities to create recreational sports programs. What you end up with is a reduction (not a cessation) to not only inner city violence but also mass-shooting incidents such as those seen in schools. The added benefit is a more intelligent workforce thanks to previous investments and in turn a stronger service-based economy. Your "moar gun controls nao" is a bullshit band-aid for virtue signalling morons that just want to gather and collect brownie points in the form of twitter followers. Just so the next time they make a smart-ass tweet they can feel vindicated by a horde of people liking/retweeting their nonsense without having really done anything to make impactful changes. Just look at how many gun reform laws there are and please think about how it's actually done anything of value to reduce violence. And before you mention it, it's not because of gun reform laws that the crime-wave of the 90's spiralled down and has continued to trend down ever since. That has everything to do with the emergence of an increasingly educated workforce.
