If I may quote the uncompromising gangsta Ice Cube:

"So what they do go and ban the AK?
My shit wasn't registered any fucking way!"

Ergo, criminals, by definition, don't care about laws!

you poor sorry sheeple you. AWB is not meant to keep guns out of criminals, it is meant to keep guns away from law abiding citizens like you and me and rest of arfcom members.

now go and take your prozac

One small thing these folks who are pushing for the ban might want to consider: There will always be a black market.

great line! I like that.

That seems to be the one point I can't hammer into ignorant people. Laws only affect law-abiding people.

If Ice-Cube says it, it's got to be true...

I did some thinking about this, but it seems to me that if there were less weapons in legal ownership, there would be more on the black markert, since the total number of weapons is relatively stable (they don't just get miraculously destroyed, usually only resold) According to Econ 101, when the volume increases and demand stays stable, then prices drop, thus allowing those in the black market to purchase more with the same amount of resources.
