it's ignorant to believe that banning things is any type of deterrant in general. durring prohibition the average ammount of liquor consumed skyrocketed. during the war on drugs the percentages of addicts of all kinds have risen steadily, ban weapons elsewhere, crimes involving those weapons increase. statistics show over and over, when you tell people not to do something it makes even those that never would have done them want to.
