    how do you know they were purchased legally?almost every study on the matter guesses those numbers because they have no way of tracking them.

    and you still dont adress guns being smuggled from other countries,oh we lemme think we banned marijuana no one can get it now,but wait more people smoke pot now then when it was legal decades ago

    HUH?

    I take it English is not your first language?

    1. What is my "claim?"

    2. What disproves whatever my "claim" is?

    Please, at least make an effort to better communicate. I'm a nice guy who enjoys talking to you.

    You should pass a law limiting criminals to buying only 1 hot gun off the street per month.

    Nothing will ever eliminate all crime.


    However, if "criminal", as a job choice, tended to result in a very short career that ended in an early grave due to citizen self-protection via firearms.... "criminal" would probably be a much less popular choice of employment!


    This is why I tend to be distinctly unsympathetic to thieves who get shot in the act.... they shouldn't have been thievin'. One less thief is fine with me.... a million less thieves would be even better.

    Thunder's assertion that crime is down in New York because of the strict gun laws just got shot in the ass.

    There is a fascinating series of articles in the Village Voice that drops the bomb on NYC crime stats, especially violent felonies. Citizens of New York, tourists in New York have been "crimed" by police administration. NYC isn't as safe as you thought. Keep on drinking that Safe and Secure Kool-Aid. The crime stats in NY argument for gun control is null and void.

    compare our murder rate to Miami, Houston, Dallas, OKC, Charlotte, and lots of other cities with much looser gun laws.
