Thinking about it, is comparing the UK vs. US a good comparison?
Sure, in the UK guns are difficult to get hold of but gun crime still exists, you're just more likely to get stabbed.
The problem isn't so much about gun control, if the US bans guns, gun crime will go down, they'll just stab each other like we do in the UK. If you ban mobile phones, mobile phone thefts will drop to zero, theft won't.
The problem is more a social issue than anything else, it doesn't really matter what people are killing each other with, take everything else away and people will beat each other to death with rocks if they have to.
