    have liberalized and violent crime has dropped over the course of the last 25 years?

    I'm not saying more guns = less crime by the way. But it looks like more guns != more crime.

    These gun nuts always worry about someone coming for their guns. Well, someone SHOULD come and take their guns until they've learned their lesson.
    What an excellent way to put the GOP in power. Republicans cause more damage than guns do.

    •  It isn't the government that should (0+ / 0-)

      be coming for their guns. It should be their own fathers and mothers, disciplining their errant children.

      Alas, that won't happen.

        People should be taught how to safely handle and use firearms.

        Of course, my solution is to have mandatory firearm safety courses in primary and secondary ed. Start the good habits young. It's one of the things I do with my spare time.
