Quotes from the news wire:
The explanation is simple: while you might take some guns away from criminals, if you primarily have law-abiding people obeying the ban, you mainly disarm law-abiding people and make it easier for criminals to commit crime.

While America has the most strongly gun control advocating president in our history, pushing regulations driving gun makers and gun sellers out of business, support for more gun control has fallen by 15 percentage points in just five years, yet, it seems unlikely that Democrats will rethink their support for more regulations. The partisan divide on this issue has never been so large — 91% of Democrats and only 24% of Republicans support stricter laws.
A poll by( the) Pew( Research Center) helps to explain why there has been such a large increase in concealed handgun permits among blacks and women. The poll shows a 25 percentage point increase in the proportion of blacks with a favorable view of gun ownership. This is the largest increase of any group.
What is so frustrating is that they don’t want to consider doing something that would work, like dealing with the fact that 98 percent of the mass public shootings keep on occurring in places where we ban general citizens from defending themselves, these killers keep saying that they pick places where people don’t have guns to protect themselves.
Even just a few people or even a couple who might be armed at a school can make a big difference in terms of whether or not terrorist types attack there, it is amazing how these killers talk explicitly about picking targets where they know victims cannot go and defend themselves. … where people are not armed and not able to stop them.
The problem is the people who need guns the most and benefit the most from owning gun, poor individuals in high crime areas, are priced out of the market, who do they think they are disarming as a result of the law ? It is minorities in poor crime areas, not some wealthy guy who can afford to purchase the firearms at a higher cost.
