Recently there have been several bills introduced to congress that would seek to control ownership of certain types of guns the idea is that this would finally stop the horrible situations that we see on TV on a weekly basis.
The truth is it would not do any such thing at all.
People that intend to break the law and use guns to do terrible things do not have to purchase a gun at a retail location all they have to do is find someone to sell them one and there are plenty of those kinds of people out there.
The failure of gun control is also a very simple thing.
You cannot control it…
Compare this to prohibition…
They banned alcohol…
Did it stop people from buying it?
No in fact more people started drinking after they banned it than before it was banned.
People became wealthy selling it, gangs emerged, people died.
So, why would anyone in their right mind think that this is a solution to a problem?
Who knows for sure but one thing is clear congress has no idea how to stop it and nothing they do will begin to stop it and the authors of the constitution knew this as well and that is why they wrote the second amendment.
Gun control does not work and anyone with the average number of brain cells knows this and knows why its true.
For our friends that continually fail to understand why Criminals will never obey the law, lets do some reviews on Gun Control.
* Roughly 16,272 murders were committed in the United States during 2008. Of these, about 10,886 or 67% were committed with firearms.
* A 1993 nationwide survey of 4,977 households found that over the previous five years, at least 0.5% of households had members who had used a gun for defense during a situation in which they thought someone “almost certainly would have been killed” if they “had not used a gun for protection.” Applied to the U.S. population, this amounts to 162,000 such incidents per year. This figure excludes all “military service, police work, or work as a security guard.”
* Based on survey data from the U.S. Department of Justice, roughly 5,340,000 violent crimes were committed in the United States during 2008. These include simple/aggravated assaults, robberies, sexual assaults, rapes, and murders.   Of these, about 436,000 or 8% were committed by offenders visibly armed with a gun.
* Based on survey data from a 2000 study published in the Journal of Quantitative Criminology, U.S. civilians use guns to defend themselves and others from crime at least 989,883 times per year.
* A 1993 nationwide survey of 4,977 households found that over the previous five years, at least 3.5% of households had members who had used a gun “for self-protection or for the protection of property at home, work, or elsewhere.” Applied to the U.S. population, this amounts to 1,029,615 such incidents per year. This figure excludes all “military service, police work, or work as a security guard.”
* A 1994 survey conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that Americans use guns to frighten away intruders who are breaking into their homes about 498,000 times per year.
* A 1982 survey of male felons in 11 state prisons dispersed across the U.S. found:
• 34% had been “scared off, shot at, wounded, or captured by an armed victim”
• 40% had decided not to commit a crime because they “knew or believed that the victim was carrying a gun”
• 69% personally knew other criminals who had been “scared off, shot at, wounded, or captured by an armed victim”
Now look at the Facts in one of the most violent cities in America, per capita.
* In 1982, the city of Chicago instituted a ban on handguns. This ban barred civilians from possessing handguns except for those registered with the city government prior to enactment of the law. The law also specified that such handguns had to be re-registered every two years or owners would forfeit their right to possess them. In 1994, the law was amended to require annual re-registration.  
* During the years in which the D.C. handgun ban and trigger lock law was in effect, the Washington, D.C. murder rate averaged 73% higher than it was at the outset of the law, while the U.S. murder rate averaged 11% lower.
The truth is clear and if congress as well as Harry Reid, refuses to understand the truth because they are mentally incapable of understanding or they have a mental problem which requires their retirement then they need to be voted out of office.
ITs Time that America puts an end to the stupidity in congress.
