The "gun might be taken away from you" hypothesis is always amusing.

By that argument, we should promote criminal access to weapons. Then, when attacked by a criminal, simply "Take his weapon away from him and use it against him."

Гипотеза о том, что (легальное) оружие (гражданина) обязательно будет у него отобрано весьма забавна.

Следуя этой теории, мы должны всячески способствовать тому, чтобы преступники вооружались, дабы в случае нападения забирать у них оружие и использовать его против преступников :)

еще аргумент

Last month, the National Academy of Sciences issued a 328-page report on gun control laws. The big news that has been ignored on all the blog sites is that the academy's panel couldn't identify any benefits of the decades-long effort to reduce crime and injury by restricting gun ownership. The only conclusion it could draw was: Let's study the question some more.
The panel has left us with two choices: Either academia and the government have wasted tens of millions of dollars and countless man-hours on useless research (and the panel would like us to spend more in the same worthless pursuit), or the National Academy is so completely unable to separate politics from its analyses that it simply can't accept the results for what they are.

Based on 253 journal articles, 99 books, 43 government publications, and some of its own empirical work, the panel couldn't identify a single gun control regulation that reduced violent crime, suicide or accidents.

(в 2005 году) Национальная Академия Наук США выпустила 328-страничный отчет по "оружейному" законодательству... и не смогла найти ни одного законодательного акта, регулирующего оборот оружия, который бы оказал положительное влияние на снижение насильственных преступлений, самоубийств и несчастных случаев.
