The difference between crimes with guns and crimes without using guns is going to be the only thing that would prove or disprove the effectiveness of gun control.
I'll tell you what, you don't even need perform a study. I'll even concede to the fact that the number of crimes committed with a gun will probably fall near 0%. Obviously, if guns are hard to come by, then guns cant be used. However, again my argument is it will have no affect on overall crime. Isnt this what we are esentially trying to do figure out? How to reduce crime??
People will still murder and kill regardless if its with a gun or not. So then I ask you, what is your goal with gun control? Just to say that people aren't killing with guns anymore???
If you want to impose gun control just to say, "look nobody was killed with a gun this year", then gun control is your answer.
However, if you want to solve the problem of crime, gun control is not your answer. In fact, as the stats show, it can even have the reserve affect.
As far as using airplanes as human guided missiles, that was solved with installing a $20 lock on the cabin door. All the other TSA stuff is there to inconvenience americans and has cost us all much more than its worth. Much like Gun Control would.
