Actually Ms. Jean, that is not accurate. It may "seem" to have not changed, but in those areas of CA with the most restrictive regulations the violent crimes have steadily increased over the last decade. You will need to go somewhere like the DOJ web site to get the facts. The mass media is not interested in reporting that their bias is rather inappropriate, and severely flawed.

It is also blatantly untrue. Blatantly. By the way, it was Benjamin Franklin that said: "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." And history has proven him right time and time again. Keeping firearms out of the hands of children is the responsibility of the parents. All it takes is education - period. Subjugating parental responsibility to the state (or Fed) is a mistake. It will not work, and never in the history of government on this planet, has.

It is pretty simple really. If one reads the second amendment to the United States Constitution one will see that the only ambiguity is that which people who don't like it inject themselves. Which is where the real problem is, and where the solution to the "gun crime" issue resides; the people. Until we stop blaming the pencil for the misspelled words this issue can not be resolved, much less corrected. One last thing; ignorance. Voluntary ignorance. "Assault weapons" are fully automatic or select fire. Both are heavily regulated by the federal government now, and believe me; if you have a . . checkered past, the government will not allow you to own one. These facts are very easily discernible. For anyone that actually cares to know the truth.
