118. Targeting people for stupid laws..
gun control is a joke, dead issue. It was pushed by morons who were to lazy to actually fix the sources of violence in this country. For those of us who have visited places like geneva and zurich where weapons are owned by civilians and crime is almost non existent this is very clear. During my year in what was left of Yugoslavia there was almost NO crime involving the bezillions of weapons in circulation. Not sure what they did with them all, but the population did not revert to crime sprees with them. Their use in the war is not comparable to this topic.

Reasonable regulation is good. Stupid bans just piss people off who actually follow the law. When the ban on weed and hookers (both are ILLEGAL) starts working then they should try a gun ban. Or maybe fix root cause.
