Just in my house alone I have to firearms loaded with one in the chamber and a second fully loaded clip next to them. Locked up but when I grab my gun I am taking my 2nd clip. That gives me 31 bullets for one gun and 21 for the other.

Interesting that violent crime rates dropped so dramatically during this same time period starting in 1992. It is also interesting that the states which still do not issue CC permits all have some of the highest rates of gun related crime.

Violent crimes are committed by young men, for the most part., expecially those born to women who felt they were not ready to have children. As the population has aged and women have more ways to avoid/terminate pregnancies, crime has gone down
Also, it's very aqmusing to hear the same group of people say that, one the one hand, criminals without guns will still be capable of massive attacks, but on the other hand, people without guns can't defend themselves.
Restrictive laws only affect people that don't break the law. It's already illegal to go on a mass shooting spree, and most of the people doing it got their guns illegally.
So yes, restricting guns will absolutely limit the right of self defense for law abiding citizens. It will not necessarily hinder a criminal's ability to go on a mass killing spree. They'd have to respect and follow the law in order for it to affect them.
