    Perhaps you can actually type what sort of point you have next time and other people can actually comment.

    Does it ever. Reminds me of some case law. Although same thing only different..., it serves the same theme as the topic.
    Beautiful case law and from the Ninth too! The last line is BEAUTIFUL for all law abiding citizens and will be referred to often!!;) (And all from a little 'ol dog bite.:D )

    Well this is pretty much the situation we have in the UK. Although still allowed, with a licence, to own shotguns and rifles the amount of people who do are few. The government has made it more and more difficult over recent years to get and renew licences. In the opinion of many this has been a deliberate and effective ploy to reduce the number of firearms in public hands.

    Criminals here know with almost 100% certainty a house will not contain firearms that might endanger their safety. As the guy in the clip says, it just helps increase their productivity!

  6. I'll tell you a story about institutionalized criminal culture. In 1968, Congress passed the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act, which included the Eavesdropping, Wiretapping, and Electronic Surveillance Act (which makes it a felony for executive branch governmental persons to do electronic surveillance on citizens without a warrant or court order). In doing so, Congress provided that the States could pass similar legislation as long as it was at least as protective of citizens' rights as the federal law. Six states didn't go along. And the reason was that the governments of those states had a long history of political corruption and criminal behavior, and they didn't want investigators to be able to do wiretaps on the political bosses and officials. So in Maryland, for example, unless everyone who's a party to the conversation gives his consent in advance, there can be no wiretapping; there can't be a warrant issued on the basis of the affidavit of a confidential informant, because the conversation can't be recorded just on the basis of his agreement.

    I see "gun control" as essentially the same thing, and the states that are the biggest "gun control" states are those in which the political structure relies on political corruption and criminal behavior. They are, in fact, "pro-crime" states, and they like it that way. They don't want the citizens armed because they want the sheep to be easily fleeced.
