My favorite quote is "this is an important issue, literally oflife and death".
There is just so many thoughts on that because it is a true statement.
Allowing the citizens to defend their homes is life for them and death for the criminals.
Allow the citizens to carry - which will not happen - would cut down on the street crime and reduce a lot of deaths to criminal on criminal crime.
Working in DC, you learn to assume that anyone giving you problems, probably has a gun anyway, even with the gun violence.
I would like to see the stats they are quoting. It seems like the states that have less gun control, more guns, and allow the citizens to carry, have less crime. I must be readin the wrong stats according to them.
