The belief that the banning weapons will make society safer is irrational. The city with one of the most restrictive and recently ruled unconstitutional restrictions on firearms, Chicago, is still one of the most violent cities in the US with rampant gun violence. As many have heard before, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results." We had the national assault weapons ban and high capacity magazine ban for 10 years. During this time NIJ funded a study on the effectiveness of ban and continued to study the effects after the sunset of the ban, they concluded that the ban had no effect of crime. But leave it to liberals to want to try the same solution to a problem that was not effective before, even when told by the research they funded.
