Actually the crime rate in D.C. has come way down since the Murder Capital Days, I wouldn't say it was just a gun ban alone but more of a combination of a lot of other things all inclusive.

Amazing that someone not raised with rights, would fight for them, once they get them. There are those that were born with rights that would gladly give them up. I wonder if the the first one knows something that the second one doesn't? :gee: Of course, the first one had to take a test to be a citizen! :doh:

Yep - lots of people take what we have for granted, and the rest are ignorant - not even knowing what they're giving up.

If gun control worked, MA would be a model state for peace. :lol: Take a stroll through Boston ... or Main South, Worcester at 2am & tell me how that's working ....
