If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will carry guns. That cliche also happens to be 100% true. Criminals don't care about laws. It's against the law to steal, rape, vandalize, use drugs, etc. So if it's against the law, why do people do it? Because they don't care about the law. The only people who do care about the law are law-abiding citizens. And if law abiding citizens know it is illegal to own a gun, they won't do it. This leaves only criminals who will own guns. So the law will actually have the opposite effect intended. DUH!
