Why the fixation on taking guns away from good and law abiding people who are only a danger to those who threaten them? You can outlaw guns so only criminals are the ones with guns. Look at those cities in the US and other countries that have outlawed guns and you see that the danger to the people has become greater. I challenge you to find just one example of a place that outlawed guns where there has been a positive result. Good luck with that because there are none.

Good question, overall there are indeed other areas, where impact would be far greater.
I guess, the answer to "why guns?" is that they do not provide any real benefit, but have mostly negative impact.
So, overall, if people could overcome their irrational fears, it would cost little to nothing to get rid of guns, but would allow about 30,000 Americans to live every year.
To start with a recent example, Australia outlawed guns recently, and far less people got killed by guns as a result.
Of course, in most European countries with very strict gun laws, citizens are a lot safer from violent crimes than in the US.
Murder rates in most European countries, which have strict gun control, are far lower than in the US. Violent crimes are lower too.
In fact you can easily turn this around, and I would ask you to show me one single place that has become better due to easing access to guns?
You can outlaw guns so only criminals are the ones with guns.
The easier it is to legally acquire guns, the easier it is for criminals to get them.
By arming law abiding citizens, you inevitably arm criminals too.
Every criminal was a law abiding person once.
Look at those cities in the US
Have you ever wondered what good it would do for any single locality in the US to outlaw guns, when you can still buy them everywhere else and have unrestricted movement in and out of these places???
