they learned the hard way...

Russians have learned nothing. They went from the Czar to Lenin to Stalin to the politbureau to Yeltsin to Putin. They worship macho self-destructive strength fueled by vodka.

In all cases where guns are banned, gun crime continues and often increases.
BS. Gun crime went down in Australia and UK after gun control laws. To be fair, it was going down anyway, but it definitely did not increase.

As for maniacs, be it nuts with cars (NYC, Chapel Hill NC), swords (Japan), knives (China) or home made bombs (everywhere), insane people strike. They throw acid (Pakistan, UK), they throw fire bombs (France), they attack.
Tiresome repetition: yes, people die of heart attacks all the time. That's not an excuse to stop cancer research. Gun control won't solve ALL crime, it will REDUCE gun crime. It's better to have 90% goodness than to have 0 and wait for a perfect 100%.

What is worse, is, that the best way to stop a maniac is not psychology or jail or "talking to them", it is a bullet in the head,
Ironic that a California teacher stopped an armed student from shooting more students by - guess what, talking to him.

The excuse that people will start shooting each other is also plain and silly.
Except that it's not an excuse, it's a fact. More guns mean more gun deaths. More guns per head means more people shooting each other.

Then, please explain how we can trust them or the police, who themselves grew up and came from the same culture?
Because, maybe not in Russia, but at least in US, cops go through a lot of training in firearms and in general in handling dangerous situations, that civilians don't.

No it is about power and a total power over the people.Do not be fooled by a belief that progressives, leftists hate guns. Oh, no, they do not. What they hate is guns in the hands of those who are not marching in lock step of their ideology. They hate guns in the hands of those who think for themselves and do not obey without question."

Nah, I am pretty sure they hate the unnecessary prevalence of guns in general.
