    Murder rate at 45 year low

    Now, the enemy will just say that it would be even lower if we had more gun control. But it is significant that there are more guns than ever, and more people carrying guns than ever, and the rate is the lowest it has been in 45 years. I do enjoy statistics and I believe the evidence shows that more guns means less crime. I'm actually unbiased too. I don't care if more guns meant more crime, we have rights, and they're not determined by the behavior (or potential behavior) of others.

Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.
