How to Create a Gun-Free America in 5 Easy Steps

In the liberal view of the world, abortions would continue unabated if Roe v. Wade were repealed tomorrow. When discussing the efficacy of the war on drugs, the vibrance of the black market is readily acknowledged and used as justification for ending these destructive policies. But our flawed narrative on gun control is propagating the absurd idea that outlawing guns will be different and will definitely reduce violence, with no regard for the unintended consequences of enforcing such a ban. If our aim is to reduce the level of violence in society, we must consider what such bans can actually achieve and the effects they’re likely to have, not fall into the easy habit of reactionary regulation.
