"Far stricter gun laws in Britain and Australia have neither made their citizens safer, nor have they prevented massacres. But they have increased crime."
"The two major countries held up as models provide evidence that making gun laws even more strict does NOT solve the apparently obscure problem: criminals and deranged individuals do not obey the law."
"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . .
"Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
