Anyone who's spent 10 minutes thinking about gun control understands there is no way to quantify how many criminals are deterred by the presence of guns, or how many, for that matter, are turned away in the midst of crime.

People with access to guns kill people. "The law also increased the age to legally purchase a handgun to 21.In 1975, the NRA established its lobbying arm, the Institute for Legislative Action, which aimed to nullify the 1968 law.President Ronald Reagan, an NRA member, signed the Firearm Owners" Protection Act in 1986, easing some of the penalties of the GCA and banning a federal registry of gun owners.Gun culture evolved in 1981 after John Hinckley Jr tried to assassinate Mr Reagan but instead almost killed the President's press secretary, James Brady.
