Michaal Moynihan at Reason Online Blog points out the iron rule of gun banning still works the same way as always. It's one of the (many) issues over which certain segments of the Western political spectrum are immune to evidence, or even common sense.
He links to Joyce Lee Malcolm's excellent 2002 article about the effects of the British gun ban on British violent crime. The noise by short-sighted gun-banners is so loud that normal people should be required to read it twice a year just to remind ourselves of how life actually works.
