Then you're way ahead of the curve because the Supreme Court has only thought so since the late 80s when Reagan packed it with right wingers. Like most things Reagan did, it's been a complete disaster. Historically, guns were always controlled in the US: they should be again.
Re the argument that there's no evidence that banning guns saves lives, try the fact the US has a homocide rate several times higher than anywhere else in the developed world.
I know guns don't kill people. They do make it a helluva lot easier for people to kill people, though.
