2nd Amendment Stickers

The following 2nd Amendment posters show the fallacy of the arguments ban certain weapons. 
Typically, it starts with, "banning guns makes society safer."

The reality is that criminals and sociopaths will always find a way to arm themselves. 

And, it's also false. Compare Virginia, which expanded their citizen's rights to carry... "From 2006 to 2011, the total number of guns purchased in Virginia increased 73 percent, while the total number of gun-related violent crimes decreased 24 percent over that period." (tl;dr the crime rate plummeted).

Now compare that to Chicago - with the most restrictive gun laws, and no concealed carry, and have the highest murder rate in the nation... Their gun laws simply don't work.

Here are some nice stickers to put gun ownership in some perspective, and strike down silly arguments for taking away every citizen's right granted by the 2nd Amendment.
