So, it's not really important whether they have a gun or an abduction vehicle or gloves or anything else when violence is committed; it's the outlaw who needs to be stopped, not the weapon. You won't likely stop outlaw violence by concentrating on guns or knives or brute force, but by concentrating on meeting outlaw violence the moment it strikes. You won't get back to safer streets by concentrating on guns and ignoring the asset of the citizen and their legal authority to act. You won't see safer streets by interfering with citizen authority by unreasonable gun control, and you won't see safer streets by telling the targets of violence that their willing and legal resistance is futile.
