    And the important thing is to get the data... to figure out what's going on for real so then policies can address real problems. We've all been saying (well, all of us but Congress) that more money needs to be put into mental health; if the study supports that, great! Now we know it may help address gun deaths. So have the republicans in the Congress been calling for a national mental health care system now that the CDC has reported on this? Please provide the link where they are calling for increased funding and coverage for mental health... .
    Sigh..you guys can always find something to grow government with. I knew that no matter what they said be that mental health or gun violence was a problem the only result was more government.

    It does not address this specific instance. The cops did not arrest Briggs for carrying a gun in an gun free zone or a "government bulding" as he was not in one. They arrested him for carrying a gun outside of a home or business. Now unless there is a law which states that the whole of DC is a gun free zone then the law should be challenged. The only way to challenge any law enough to get up to SCOTUS is to have standing. The only way to have standing is by showing that (in this case) you are not allowed to carry a gun in public. IE, get arrested for carrying a gun outside of your home or business.
    Umm, no

    It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld

    But they can't find a case to use to get rid of it. Doesn't that make you sad?

    Studies have shown that most suicides are spur of the moment, and if they can be prevented, the suicider is unlikely to try again. For example, a study of people who had been prevented from jumping off the Golden Gate Bridges showed that none of them tried to commit suicide again.

    Nope. You're making it up.



    Gun violence in the United States by state - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Illinois 3.5/100,000 - 364 deaths a year.
    Texas 5/100,000 - 805 deaths a year.

    Please... please.. stop making things up.

    You are correct. He misspoke.

    Any statistical violence problems in Illinois are a result of Chicago. Where things are essentially out of control with regard to gang violence and high murder rates.

    The rest of Illinois is relatively civil/peaceful. Many people don't realize that if you isolate/discount Cook County (Chicago) the remainder of Illinois is a solid "red" state.

    Just a little trivia for you...

    Don't know why you highlighted "concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld" since this case has nothing to do with concealed carry. It has to do with bearing arms and they arrested him when he had the gun in plain view.

    True, but I was waiting for the Conservative defense of this guy. I thought it would be something about removing tyranny...as it turns out, it's still about the persecution.

    And all the "red" states that statistically are inferior by every metric compared to "blue" states, I'll assume its pockets of felonious libruls screwing up those numbers as well?
