Do gun bans really stop criminals from getting guns? Americans need not look no further than the massive gun battle with armed gangs fighting police and soldiers that took place in Kingston, Jamaica today. At least 30 people were killed in the fighting.

The findings, say researchers, counter the common belief that gun violence is mainly an urban problem.
