Why do Democrats think banning guns will work? It didn't work with alcohol, so why would it work with guns?

Prohibition (banning alcohol) led to an increase in organized crimes.

    They think that a ban will just magically get rid of all guns, but that kind of thinking isn't reality. The reality is, a ban will only take the weapons away from the responsible gun owners.  Now the only ones with guns are the criminals, leaving the law abiding citizen defenseless.

    Banning all guns, or banning the AR-15 types

    They don't "think" it "will" work; they KNOW it already DOES work, in nearly every country that has tried it with well-enforced uniform, nationwide laws. It has failed only in countries that don't enforce it, like Mexico, and in the one country that insists of having different laws for each city, state, and "zone": the United States of America.

    Nobody thinks it will as no one is trying to ban them. We do think stricter laws are necessary to stem the tidal wave of senseless violence overwhelming this country. That isn't a gun ban.

    It's obvious -- if guns are banned then no one will have one and then there will be no more shootings.

    I dont think anyone wants to ban guns outright, they just want more checks and regulations on ownership. But they are not in the right direction. Those killers who commit mass murders are not sane, are deranged, or mentally disturbed but many do not get treatment so there is no record of mental illness or they get weapons from someone else who can pass a background check.

      Do you actually think that more background checks on gun owners, affect the criminals, or mass shooters? If so, you're as crazy as they are.

    Gun buy ups work.  Government offers cash for guns, no questions asked.  Then, regulating gun sales and gun makers is key.

    Cars are regulated and last time I looked, they're everywhere.
