    IBTL.

    But I've never seen the point in trying to legislate gun ownership to prevent crime. Criminals, by definition, do not abide laws, so legislating rules regarding which objects they can posess is a self-producing punchline?

    However, it must be pointed out that this article is a horrible analysis. At no point does it note that people purchased and carried more firearms. It just points out a correlation between the expiration of a gun ban and a drop in crime rates.

    Which, honestly, when viewed from a scientific/statistical standpoint doesn't mean a thing.

    But I'm still pro 2nd amendment.

    Pretty much comes in whatever you want. Just a simple barrel swap really.

    I did my college thesis on this. My prof was a hardcore lesbian liberal democrat too and I still managed to pull of an A. I've read hundreds of reports about criminal mentality when it comes to possession of guns by civilians. The number one thing criminals fear is an armed citizen who knows how to use their weapon, not the police. Police take minutes to arrive on scene, a gun barrel staring you in the face is there now. Convicted felons in jurisdictions where gun laws were more restrictive said they were more willing to commit a home invasion robbery. Cities where CCW's were "shall issue" had substantially lower violent crime rates than cities of similar populations with "may" or limited issue permits. Sorry anti-gunners but you lose on this issue.

    Real life lesbians are nothing like what you've seen in internet porn. You've been warned.
