On Gun Control

Gun control is being able to hit your target. Can anyone honestly defend gun control?? After all, it is the ultimate means to complete governmental control over our lives. Yes, I do agree that there are too many "illegal" guns available. But if you honestly think that gun control will help cut down on that problem, well, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you. If you really think about it, gun control hasn't helped stop crime in New York, Chicago, Washington D.C., Detroit, or Los Angeles. And these cities have the toughest gun control laws in America. 

Of course, I realize it does no good to point this out to you, if you believe in gun control that is. I'd also like to point out that the claims that the President and other people are making about the so-called "Crime-Bill" having an effect on the crime statistics for 1995 is total BUNK!! The money from the crime bill only became available in 1995 , so it couldn't have actually made an impact on crime since it takes the better part of the year to actually recruit, hire, and train police officers. Any officers hired as a result of the crime bill would only be making their presence felt on the streets in 1996, and maybe not until 1997.

One final comment on this subject. If I thought that it were possible for ALL violent crime to end by giving up my firearms, I'd give them up in a heartbeat. But since we know that won't happen, Let me say I'll give up my guns...when you pry them from my cold, dead hands!!!
