Nope. If I want you dead I'll see you dead. Might take a little longer or be a little messier than with a gun, but you'll still be dead.

Sure, just like banning subway trains.

If there were no subways, no one would be killed in one.

Cain killed Abel without an AR-15...without any kind of gun in fact.

The ban on murder has been in effect for centuries.

Nutjobs here use guns. In China, you see on the news where folks are into cutting implements. They have had nuts there attack schoolkids with meat cleavers. Guns just happen to be very efficient killing tools. Duh

South Africa has one of the highest murder rate in the world. The weapon of choice machetes.

We just passed 500 homicides in Chicago-land for 2012, so the answer is "no". Only the outlaws are carrying concealed (and some do open-carry as seen in some YouTube videos).

Using that logic, you'd better ban rope, knives, machettes, cars plus a 1000 other things you can use to kill people.

Swaziland and Papua New Guinea both have extremly high homicide rates with little legal gun ownership.
Granted,we are slightly more advanced than those two,but it shows that bad people will find a means to do evil.
