Facts That Discredit Gun Control
 
I would like to compile a list of known facts and sources that prove that gun control does not work or leads towards bad social movements (tyranny).

Please post up your facts and sources.

More Guns, Less Crime
 
There's a NRA fact sheet called "More Guns, Less Crime" that discusses your topic:

http://www.nraila.org/Issues/FactSheets/Read.aspx?id=206&issue=007

Quote:

Violent crime hit an all-time high in 1991. Since then, “gun control” laws have been eliminated or made less restrictive at the federal, state, and local levels; the numbers of privately-owned guns, gun owners, and Right-to-Carry states have risen to all-time highs; and violent crime has dropped 38%. Among the four categories of violent crime, murder has dropped 42%, rape 27%, robbery 45%, and aggravated assault 34%.
