Alcohol Prohibition was a failure. Alcohol Prohibition from 1920 to 1933 was undertaken to reduce crime and corruption, solve social problems, reduce the tax burden created by prisons and poorhouses and improve health and hygiene in America. The results of that experiment clearly indicate that it was a miserable failure on all counts. The evidence affirms sound economic theory, which predicts that prohibition of mutually beneficial exchanges is doomed to failure.
Gun Control is The Progenitor To Gun Prohibition. This too is doomed to failure.
