    Let me make my point upfront: gun control does not work! Both Canada and Illinois are VERY anti-gun, yet they are having problems with very serious gun related crime. Gun laws will not keep guns out of the hands of criminals, only the would-be, law-abiding, victims. When you are reading these articles ask yourself what would have happened if the citizens in these situations were allowed to legally defend themselves.

    Two gunman went on a shooting-spree on the campus of a Montreal college, wounding at least 10 people:

    It gives me a sick feeling when I hear about situations like this. I cannot explain my furry at governments that disarm their citizens in the name of “safety.”

    My heart and prayers go out to the families of the victims. This is truly a tragedy, and one on many different levels.

    Here is the info on the hostage situation at the Chicago bank:

    All that can be gleaned from these situations is that all gun control has done was assure the perpetrators they had little to worry about from their victims.

    Sorry, but I have to disagree with you. Gun control DOES work and fulfills its intended purpose. Politicians use "gun control" to keep law abiding citizens dependent on the state for "protection", and to keep citizens from thinking of themselves as being self sufficient.

    When a person owns and carries a gun, their way of thinking changes, and not in a way that politicians want them to think.

    Anti-gun rights politicians are "dependency pimps".

    Right they are. They want to keep the peasants disarmed, lest they learn to rebel.
