Do you know what stops bad guys with guns? Good guys with guns.
Here's another jefferson quote for you:
"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government"
How about one more from George Washington:
"The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good"
To put it simply, if criminals KNOW that all or most are unarmed, you all become easy targets. If the criminals have to guess which are armed, as that ratio increases, it deters all but the boldest criminals.
I give up. You can't use logic to argue with retarded liberals.
Do you really think a criminal is going to drive down to the police station to buy their next weapon? No. They buy stolen guns in a back-ally deal.
It's not the weapons bought thru legal channels that you have to worry about. Those go to responsible citizens for self defense, sport, etc. It's the ones bought from a thug on a street corner or the stolen ones that are used in criminal activity.
