84. LOL those who want to ban all firearms attack those who want no bans and vice versa.

 

The media just want to keep the fight going and sometimes publishes outright lies or carefully distorted truths.

I don't believe one set of federal laws will satisfy all needs, e.g. Wyoming's 600k citizens and crime ridden Chicago (2.7 million) and Detroit (700k) citizens.

I'm beginning to understand the debate about the upper limit on a "republic" that our Constitution promises "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government"

I've read a number of papers that suggest 200k might be the upper limit of a population that can self-govern a republic as a democracy.

FBI UCR shows violent crime rates go up rapidly as metro population increases, see http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2010/crime-in-the-u.s.-2010/tables/10tbl16.xls
