    In the same way that more abstinence-only classes won't lower teen pregnancy, more gun laws won't decrease gun related violence. When existing practices have proven ineffective, the answer is not more of the same approach, but a new approach.

    Many would debate that first statement. There are thousands and thousands of shooters who own guns for no purpose besides sport shooting. Trap shooting, skeet shooting, target shooting, etc. It's even a sport in the Olympics after all.
