    You are exactly right. God forbid someone proposes stiffer penalties for those that try and buy a gun but fail the background for lying. Chicago's problems could be fixed a bunch by empowering the officers just like they did in NY and then actually prosecute the ones arrested for not obeying the gun laws. Instead they try to interfere with my ability to legally buy a gun or magazine.

    Oh, and don't forget, women don't need guns for protection, they have whistles and safe zones.

    SOP to take away gun rights of convicted felons. Has been for years
    The problem is felons dont obey laws; if they did they wouldn't be felons!!

    For all the fuss made about Akin's stupid comment during the fall campaign, nobody bats an eye over this:
    “It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop around at somebody.”

    Well, after all, you
    might not get raped. In Salazar’s world, not only are women incapable of defending themselves against a physical threat, but they are incapable of even identifying a physical threat, and should therefore be deprived of the ability to try. Empowerment! I guess if you are raped, there’s this…safe zone. Look, colleges are welcome to establish safe zones (though criminals are notoriously unobservant of such signage), call boxes, lighted paths, and whistles to help prevent campus attacks. I have benefited from at least a few of these tools, and begrudge no one their use. But I would also like women who choose to arm themselves, in the event that safe zones, call boxes, lights, and whistles don’t work, to retain the right to their chosen tool of prevention.
    Advice to women from Colorado University include this nugget:
    Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone.

    Serious Question--- Should we as sportsman and sportswomen - boycott hunting in Colorado?

    Are we hitting them (State Government) where they hurt or are we hurting our allies??

    but when all guns are safely confiscated from the public there will be no weapon for a crazy person or criminal to steal! why can't you people understand this?
