I am against gun ban. All citizens must have the right to buy or not arms to their own safety.
But if criminals and terrorists are buying arms it must not be for their safety but to hurt and kill other (maybe innocent) people. It must be stopped. Drug Enforcement Administration seems to be doing a nice job. Because these arms are not supposed only to kill "americans" but people like you and me in any part of the globe (but specially where it was appointed).
Some say that wars are prepared by US oinly to sell weapons. It´s a fantasy created by many. The real thing is this: criminals deal with criminals. Criminal countries (and even some "civilized" ) sell arms to other criminal countries (in Iraq, Russia, China, France and even Brazil sold more arms to Saddam that US).
It´s good news!
