    fair enough
    explain what other factors would create such massive differences in murder rates (in which a gun was used)

    Demographics is probably number one.

    do you find the assualts such as the one on the congresswoman acceptable, where better gun controls might prevent such recurrence?

    Better gun control probably would not have prevented such an occurance. The shooter was nuts, and could have gotten a gun illegally just as easily.

    americans exercise what they foolishly feel to be their rights, so many reprobates

    Gun sales soared in Arizona and several other states on Monday after the shooting on Saturday of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, according to FBI figures provided to POLITICO.

    Gun sales skyrocketed 60 percent in Arizona on Monday, Jan. 10, compared with the corresponding Monday last year. Giffords was shot and critically injured at a public event on Saturday. Six people at the event were killed; 12 others were injured.

    In Ohio, sales spiked 65 percent on Monday, the FBI said. They rose 38 percent in Illinois, 33 percent in New York and 16 percent in Florida.

    pray for ms giffords and the others and their families

    no more heated rhetoric, now

    generally not knowing about guns and wanting strong regulation go hand in hand
