If gun control were an effective method to reduce the number of guns available in the urban households, then it is quite possible that many family quarrels and other arguments would not end with someone's death. The availability of firearms makes the gun a readily accessible vehicle of violence. If the regulation of this vehicle were more strict, then perhaps this type of domestic violence would be less frequent.
