Re: “Why Oakland Needs a Federal Gun Control Law

Questions this article leaves unanswered:

1. How many people were killed with assault weapons during 1990-2010 and in the 3 periods that time frame is divided in? by handguns? without guns?

2. How many guns found were actually bought out of state?

3. How is a legally purchased hand gun able to be sold for less than $200?

4. What's the correlation between peak incarceration between 1998-2004 and violent crime?

5. How will an assault weapons ban keep criminals from having hand guns, the most often used gun in violent crime?

6. Does an assault weapons ban keep you from being robbed with a handgun?

7. Were the streets of Oakland still wildly more violent than the average city during the weapons ban? I can answer this - YES

8. If so, is the problem legal or illegal gun ownership?

9. Are the problems in Oakland gun related or are people trying to solve their problems with guns? Why not try and solve their problems?

10. Does gun control make people want to steal less? or do drugs less? or thug not as hard? give me a break.

Conclusion: learn, ask questions, read from multiple sources, and think for yourself.
