    I was right, you have no idea what you're talking about. Go convince Middle Eastern villagers to give up their AKs because the newly established Democratic government will keep the baddies away. You might as well... It's the same thing you're doing here.

    Ah right, the thugs that harass towns folk, kill random civilians and pay off the local government to have free reign doesn't sound like the Middle East at all. There are over a million active registered gang members in the US and that only accounts for the ones that get caught and recorded as gang members. Just about double that of active police officers, all of which are recorded.

    So now the US is full of terrorist immigrant gang members and corrupt government officials. I think I saw some movies like this.

    Reading: Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami

    one of the most common ways criminals get guns is through straw purchase sales. A straw purchase occurs when someone who may not legally acquire a firearm, or who wants to do so anonymously, has a companion buy it on their behalf.
    And stricter gun control wouldn't solve this? What am I missing here?

    The next biggest source of illegal gun transactions where criminals get guns are sales made by legally licensed but corrupt at-home and commercial gun dealers.
    again... it sounds to me like they're just letting any old tom, dick and harry sell guns to anyone. Criminals are getting guns because the US aren't keeping a strict enough watch on who they are sold to and who they are sold by. Maybe they just don't care. Either way, stricter gun control and criminals are getting less guns, simple as that.
