Guns corrupt people, and people kill. You can honestly say that the world is a better place because everyone in the USA is allowed the right to bear arms? What are guns designed for: killing. Death. Destruction. Giving men false power.
Like Chicago right? I'd like to see a source to back up this "claim." Because it seems more like a "claim" than a fact.
New York City's crime rate has only gone down because they employ about twice as many police officers as Chicago.
Whereas if they empowered the citizens to carry weapons to protect themselves, they would save lots of money.
Samuel Adams once said, "among the natural rights of the colonists are these: first, a right to life, secondly to liberty, thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can."
