    Don’t know why these gun grabbers keep calling it gun control when it is actually a gun ban. I’m all for people learning proper gun control. Goes hand in hand with owning one.

    In all honesty, we need “IDIOT control” Not GUN control. If people actually looked at true reports instead of bias reports, they would see that guns are more often used in self defense rather than crimes. If you take the right away from the law abiding citizens, then just the criminals will have the guns, and that will be a bad day.

    On a side note… DC is a gun free zone, and it is also one of the most dangerous cities in the U.S. Go figure.

    In 2011, The highest gun homicide rate (per 100,000 residents) in the nation was, ironically, in the city where the nation’s gun control control laws are decided: Washington, D.C. The rate there was 12.4 (actually down from 2010). A close second was Louisiana, with a rate of 10, followed by Mississippi, with 7.4. California, meanwhile, which is by far the nation’s most populous state and has some of the strictest gun control laws, had the greatest number of overall homicides (1,790) as well as the most gun-related homicides (1,220).
