    Sanctimonious legislators and the Gun Lobby.

    http://host.madison.com/ct/news/opin...95086deb3.html




    “As a result, the question becomes whether allowing more people to carry guns actually deters crime, as gun rights advocates contend, and whether that outweighs the risks posed by the minority who commit crimes.”

    A quote from the story about WI. Maybe they should have a system like MI, every year we release a report that covers the kind of info that the writer is complaining about.

    Until then Sanctimonious is what I am.
    But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776

    This article belongs at the bottom level of a out-house in my honest opinion. The Author is clearly a buffoon.

    “A government that does not trust it’s law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms is itself unworthy of trust.” James Madison.

    “Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth.” “The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good.” George Washington

    Short sited folk, all they have to do, is see how it works in other countries and even cities and states over here.

    Agreed, the writer is sadly misinformed.
    But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

    I like how of all the scenarios stated from the study, the only ones that mention a firearm was used or present in was the homocides. Other than that its pretty much up in the air if during the other offenses the offender even had possession of a firearm.
    The worst weapon is the human mind, its created and done things far worse than a gun can, has, or ever will. Its the human mind that tells the gun what to do and animates the inanimate object.

    With all these gun control laws in place I have yet to find a single one that has saved someones life, but I can find hundreds of stories where a gun has.

    Agreed. No real information here but there are a lot of suppositions and ASSUMEing.
