There is no evidence that gun control laws cause a reduction in violent crime. In fact, gun ownership has been increasing to an all time high while violent crime has been declining for decades and is at a 40-50 year low. Nearly every high profile mass shooting in recent history has occurred where guns are banned. This is a profoundly stupid and illogical idea. Law-abiding citizens would be disarmed and defenseless while mass murderers would increase their chances of a higher death toll. Governor, why would you want that?
