    You don't suppose it has anything to do with the fact that they don't promote racial superiority, do you?

    1) when dealing with hard core racist or racial supremacist whack jobs, application of terms of political philosophy is general nothing more than mental masturbation

    2) until we know who actually murdered the DA, his wife and the ADA, its silly to speculate. I remember when the Murrow Building was blown up (one of my classmates in College-now President of NKU-Geoffrey Mearns was on the Nichols prosecution team) the official view at first was Jihadist Terrorists, not anti government extremists getting even for the Davidian massacre or the Murders of Sammy and Vicky Weaver but rogue federal agents operating illegally or under illegal use of force order

    It doesn't suprise me that you'd say this. White supremacist groups always also promote conservative talking points involving xenophobia, scapegoating, anti-immigration, anti-welfare, anti-science, anti-modernism, and anti-democratic government. So I can see why you want to pretend otherwise.

    Yeah, I pay attention to what kooky tea baggers say. And it usually involves xenophobia, violence and authoritarianism.

    remind me what your posts consist of. I don't blame most liberals for the stuff you post. Blaming the conservative movement for the whack jobs like the AB or WAR is just plain stupid.

    "Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland took no chances after one of his assistant prosecutors was gunned down two months ago. McLelland said he carried a gun everywhere he went and was extra careful when answering the door at his home."

    Gun Control in Chicago: A Case Study

    The City of Chicago has one of the nation's most restrictive gun control laws. Since April 1982 it has been illegal to purchase or register any handgun within the city. At the time Chicago's law was passed, then-Mayor Jane Byrne touted it as an anti-crime measure. How has her claim fared through the past dozen years?

    A review of the Chicago Murder Analyses from 1965 to 1992 provides information on this question. The Murder Analyses are compiled annually by the Chicago Police Department, offering painstaking detail about the number of murders committed in the City of Chicago, the types of weapons used in those murders, the age of offenders and victims, and much more.

    Figure 1 shows the number of murders in the City of Chicago between 1965 (seventeen years before the city's gun control law was enacted) and 1992 (ten years after gun control). Between 1965 and 1974 there was a steady increase in the number of murders, with 1972 being the only exception. Between 1974 and 1990, the number of murders stayed within a reasonably narrow range, with a fairly dramatic fall in--1982 the year gun control was passed. Just five years later, in 1987, the number of murders in the city began to climb steadily. Indeed, by gun control's tenth anniversary, the number of murders in the city was back where it had been a decade before gun control.

    Figures 2 and 3 narrow the analysis to include only firearms (Figure 2) and handguns (Figure 3). The two figures closely track Figure 1: steady increase until 1974; stabilization until 1981; stabilization again at a lower level for five years; and then a steady increase beginning in 1989.

    What all three graphs show is that the number of murders ebbs and flows with little apparent respect for gun control laws. The national gun control act of 1968 appears to have had little effect on murders with firearms in Chicago: The number of murders committed with handguns rose dramatically in the years following its passage. The number of murders with handguns was falling in Chicago before passage of the city's 1982 gun control law. That year, the number of murders fell precipitously. Was this evidence of the gun control law working? If so, upon what theory? Were there suddenly fewer guns in circulation? Were criminals, heedless of the state's murder laws before the city passed its ordinance, more careful once handgun possession became a misdemeanor? Then what?

    Then perhaps nothing. After all, the national murder rates rose very rapidly from the mid-1960s through 1979, and then began falling. Through most of the 1980s national murder rates declined, as did the rates in Chicago. Then in the late 1980s, national murder statistics began to trend up. Chicago's numbers did likewise. Currently, after thirteen years under a strict handgun ban, handgun murders and murders of all sorts are at record levels in the city.

    In light of this record, calling for more, or yet-more-stringent, gun control laws begins to seem like neurotic behavior.

    and Jim Fixx ran marathons and died of a heart attack

    didn't you make this stupid argument before-and then you were shown how stupid it was

    if someone plans to murder you with a gun are you better off disarmed or armed?
