Speaking of Washington D.C., until very recently when the Supreme Court overturned its handgun ban, it had some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. Also one of the highest murder rates. Yet last year there were only 88 murders, a huge decline. It's been all over the news...yet nowhere have I heard mention that it just might be because the handgun ban was lifted?

Someday your life will flash before your eyes. It's your responsibility to make sure it's worth watching!
More people were murdered last year by hammers than rifles by a number of close to 2 to 1. More people were murdered by the use of hands last year than by rifles. Are we going to outlaw hammers and hands?
Weapons are not the problem. People are the problem. You can not legislate away murder. People that want to kill, will kill regardless of the weapon they have. You just never hear about the hammers because it lacks sensationalism. Therefore it is a BORING headline.
Keep the second amendment, open the nut house's back up and lock the crazies away. That ladies and gentleman is my non political correct statement of the day.
Well put, I hope your aim tomorrow is as accurate as your opinion is today. See ya in the am.
American Thinker had an interesting piece on why you need larger clips ... various scenarios of multiple attackers and also the inability of .22s and .38 slugs not being able to take down an attacker before he could inflict serious injury.

I don't know if this had been covered in any thread lately so here goes. How many of these people who commit mass murders have been hunters of game animals ? Not trying to hi-jack this thread.
P.S. I have not heard of one of them being a hunter/sportsman before they went off their rocker. They practiced with a gun at gun ranges in some cases but that is not the same.
