Just take the test.

After you take it, or if you just want to learn, the answers are posted in white text here:

1-Correct Answer: The crime rates for murder, rape, and assault in that state decreased measurably

2-Answer: There are laws severely limiting or prohibiting concealed carry.

3-Answer: Decreased by 25 percent

4-Answer: Who knows? There is no evidence that gun laws stop criminals

5-Answer: Firearms

6-Both of these are correct, it depends on which survey you cite:

At least 764,000
Up to 2.5 million

7-Answer: Rose more than 16 times as fast as the national average

8-Answer: Firearms

9-The big and strong would then have power over the small, the weak, the elderly and the infirm. This is a sad fact. The handgun is called "the great equalizer".

10-Answer: The top one because of its ability to affix a bayonet

11-Answer: Criminals shot by other criminals

12-Answer: There is no gunshow loophole. Firearms sales at gunshows are subject to the same laws that regulate all gun purchases.

13-Answers: No firearms manufacturer in the world makes a plastic gun that will pass through metal detectors undetected.

14-Answer: you're most likely to survive by resisting with a gun.

15-Answer: All able bodied male citizens between the ages of 17 and 45

16- Ballistic fingerprinting has been used New York and Maryland, at great expense, but this has not resulted in even one prosecution. It doesn't work.

The ballistic fingerprint of a weapon is easily altered with common tools. This is true. You could do it with a nail.

Firearms always leave marks on a bullet &/or casing that will identify the weapon. Partly true. It can identify a weapon, sometimes. Not always.

17-Correct Answer: Gun registration laws in New York and California have led to widespread confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens.

You're fairly astute, not easily fooled. You've bought into few, if any, of the myths put forth by the media and the gun haters. You're probably not an NRA member, nor someone who has looked into these issues, but if you go to the sources I mentioned in the intro and read a little, you'll be able to tell a gun grabber to "make your day".

If it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.

You did a good job. You don't believe everything you hear, and you have a good understanding of the criminal mind. Now you just need more information, so go to the sources I mentioned in the intro.




I did pretty well considering I don't actually make a point to learn the gun laws or stats of a country I don't live in.

On the question about which gun, I was going to say the first one because of the size of the magazine, but the answer said the bayonet; I didn't think it was the bayonet. I knew the Assault Weapons Ban was based on characteristics that had nothing to do with how dangerous the weapon was, so I chose the one with the flash suppressor >.<...

I'm pretty sure magazine size is one of the characteristics...alongside bayonet lugs and some other stupid things...

I got that one right,by guessing,even though the assault weapon ban in Canada includes three of the weapons pictured.Here its has to do with mag size,bayonet lugs,and rate of fire,as well as flash supressors.I think there's something about muzzle velocity aswell,but I'm not sure.

I realise that, but it's obvious that the stats have been picked and chosen to show guns in their best light, and so any "liberal" stats will have been left out =/

Yeah you could re-write that test to go the opposite way, just by putting in a few different questions.

It proves very little really, except that you can make stats support any argument.

Give me access to all the stats on guns and crimes and i could easilly make guns look like the work of satan. This set of questions did the exact same thing only the other way.

Actually to both of you, there is relatively no proof besides some small things that gun control does work in America.

Even the best articles against guns leaves you thinking, are they kidding or is this serious writing?

Most of their points involve:

Guns kill, so they are bad. Control them.

There are many gun deaths!!!!

Pro gun advocates are kkk redneck gun nuts who shoot at everything that moves!!


They often dont point out it is mostly illegal guns, and their statistics involve more petty things than pro gun stats do.


And in general:
Amendment 2 - Right to bear arms
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

You must be able to buy a gun.

Amendment 4 - Search and seizure
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

They cannot take your gun.

QUOTE
Gun Regulations are needed because
Violent criminals will obey the laws
It makes people feel better and gives lawmakers something to do
More laws have been proven to lower crime
Who knows? There is no evidence that gun laws stop criminals



Horrible question. theres no factual answer


QUOTE
In 1997, there were 691,000 violent crimes committed in the US with a firearm. According to 9 different national surveys conducted by Gallup Poll, Los Angeles Times, and Peter Hart Research Associates (paid for by Brady Campaign), how many crimes are prevented in the US each year by firearms?
None
At least 764,000
Up to 2.5 million
350,000


does this question include cops using guns?

QUOTE

If all guns could be miraculously eliminated all at once
There would be no more violent crime
The big and strong would then have power over the small, the weak, the elderly and the infirm
The police would protect everyone


Subjective and POINTED question.


QUOTE
17. Which of the following is true:
All guns in the US should be registered. Fears of confiscation, as was done in Nazi Germany, are unfounded, that will never happen here
Gun registration laws in New York and California have led to widespread confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens


another pointed question.

Nobody's fool
You scored 32 knowledge!

1- the factual answer is factually no law has limited crimes

2-Nope

3-Slanted question no doubt but that scenario and result are common sense to real minded people. guns are the only equilizer for weak vs strong.

4-Nazi part propaganda, but the other is very true.
