Banning guns, as with anything, can lead to illegal profits
Placeholder Image

Recent talk of gun control only makes sense if you ask one question. Who will profit?

When any government bans anything a black market is created. Look back to the prohibition of alcohol. Only the bad guys had access to alcohol and crime escalated dramatically. Elected officials were given cash rewards and bad cops were given payoffs also in order for the criminals running the black markets. Plus no taxes were paid.

Those who want gun control are not going to take guns away from the drug cartels or human smugglers etc. or criminals. They just want you to not have guns or pay extreme prices for one.

Go back and look at the outcome of alcohol prohibition and the war on drugs. Both actions by government have destroyed more lives than a gun ever did.
