Supreme Court could take guns case

WASHINGTON - Supreme Court justices have track records that make predicting their rulings on many topics more than a mere guess. Then there is the issue of the Second Amendment and guns, about which the court has said virtually nothing in nearly 70 years.

I've read about countries where gun control was passed and it actually made homocides even worse.

They'll probably decline to hear it...again.

Even if they do rule on it there's no guarantee their decision will affect anywhere outside DC, it all depends on what specifically they decide and how they word it.

If Clinton gets elected we all need to hang on tight to our guns. The DNC at large would like to take them away. Time for America to take a stand !!

So is it any coincidence that D.C. has the highest homicide rate per capita in the U.S.? Well is it? NO...it aint! See how that works?

D.C. does not have the highest homicide rate per capita in this country. In fact, their MSA homicide rate in 2006 (8.8/100,000) was lower than the Shreveport-Bossier City MSA (11.3/100,000). The homicide rate for the D.C. MSA was slightly higher than Alexandria, LA's, and slightly lower than Tulsa, OK's, around 63rd in the nation.

#1 was, unsurprisingly, New Orleans (21.7/100,000). #2 was Flint, MI (15.4), and #3 was Baton Rouge (14.4). The national average was 5.7.

The only way Washington gets near the top is if you start adding restrictions such as "among cities over a certain size" or "only counting crimes counted within the city limits instead of the MSA," neither of which reflect reality. The FBI doesn't publish stats for crimes committed within the actual, physical city limits (only publishes by MSA) but MorganQuinto does (a year behind). Restricting it like that puts Washington at #13 for 2005 (latest year available from them).

I got this email and could not disprove it. It does make a good point about gun control.


Now that's what I call a good ending.




THIS STORY EXEMPLIFIES GUN CONTROL AS IT SHOULD BE.
Butte , Montana November 5, 2006
Shotgun preteen vs. illegal alien Home Invaders

Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez, 23, and
Enrico Garza, 26, probably believed they would easily overpower,
home-alone, 11 year old Patricia Harrington after her father had left
their two-story home.

It seems the two crooks never learned two things: they were in Montana
and Patricia had been a clay shooting champion since she was nine.

Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the
front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father's room and grabbed
his 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.

Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor only to be the first
to catch a near point blank blast of buckshot from the 11-year-old's knee
crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen and genitals.

When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to the left shoulder
and staggered out into the street where he bled to death before medical
help could arrive.

It was found out later that Resindez was armed with a stolen 45 caliber
handgun he had taken from another home invasion robbery. That victim,
50-year-old David Burien, was not so lucky. He died from stab wounds to
the chest.

Wonder why this never received wide spread tv coverage by NBC, CBS, PBS, MSNBC,
CNN, or ABC news....

Oh well! I repeat. "Now that's a good ending".

Thought for the day

Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented immigrant"
is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist"

Excellent, 3 cheers for Patricia

Thank you LN ! I did disclaim it because it was a email but it does make a point that every house needs a good shot gun and training on how to use it. I hope I made joes day being right gives him such a big head I bet when JP gets home he is PW
