We have higher numbers than some and lower than others. Our rates are lower than say Finland and Germany yet our per capita gun ownership is about the same. If you look at per capita gun ownership rates vs gun homicide rates by country, the numbers are over the map. Gun laws are only part of it.

Do you seriously think even one of the gang bangers shooting up the lower mainland is using a legally purchased hand gun, has a PAL or any other kind of permit? Our border is pretty much a sieve for this kind of stuff.

Once again, you’re ignoring the fact (see the studies in the link) that the harder guns are to get, the less gun deaths there are. 

“This won’t do anything to take guns away from gang bangers” is a non-argument that ignores facts.No one is saying these guns will disappear from the black market tomorrow.  It’s asinine to frame it as if that’s what anyone is trying to do, or thinks it will do.
