Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
Generally people living in an urban area want gun control to help with urban violence. For whatever reason, urban dwellers are more ready to accept police protection rather than self protection (whether you wanna admit it or not, this is what gun control is all about). While rural dwellers prefer the idea of self protection, responsibility, and liberty.
The court ruling you're referring to isn't a gun rights ruling, it's a states' rights ruling. As an advocate of states rights and local control, if a municipality decides they feel safer relying on local police force to aid in protection, shouldn't they be allowed to do that? Why should the federal government infringe on their freedom to decide that? While I personally will never live in an area that won't allow me to protect myself, I could never force others to protect themselves when they decide another solution works for them.
All that being said 53 people were shot in chicago last father's day. It is obvious that people need to decide in whom to trust their protection because in certain areas of this country there is very little protection at all unless you belong to a gun toting gang.

Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.
