Gun Control policy was absolutely abandoned by the Republican party in the last election, I hope they come around in the mid-terms.

    Interesting stats reported on Bill Cunningham on radio tonight:
    In 2011 ... total killings in 2011 ... 11,000 (this would also include suicides & accidents)
    6000 related to handguns
    503 involved hammers
    323 involved rifles

    The vast majority of killings involved criminal activities like drug dealing or gang violence.

    With so many millions (I've heard 2.8 million mentioned for handguns) in the hands of the citizenry, it certainly would appear that the vast majority of gunowners are careful with them & law abiding.

    Biden says "We must DO something," about those rifles that cause 323 killings a year ... guess the 500 in Chicago don't bother him as much, or the 6000 caused by handguns (not that I think additional handgun laws are going to help either).
