Taking weapons away from the majority of law abiding citizens because some idiots kill with them makes as much sense as taking cars away from people who drive responsibly because others kill when they drive drunk .
You are right just like registering, licensing, and insuring my car won't save a single life either. But I still have to do it. WAIT THOUGH, there is people that don't register, license or get car insurance and still drive on our roads and crash and kill people, well damn I guess we shouldn't have that law anymore.
We should just let every swinging dick and their blind and deaf grandma drive no worries.
