Urban areas will always be the most dangerous segments of our society. Living in close quarters with high population densities and other societal issues such as illegal drug use and gang activity will ensure this.<quoted text>
If gun bans worked, Chicago, Washington, New York and Detroit would be the safest places in the country. On the contrary, They are some of the most violent. Remove the incentive to kill helpless childress who can't fight back. DO AWAY WITH GUN FREE ZONES. They just produce a target rich environment. Do like the town in Georgia outside of Atlanta, that has had ONE murder in 5 years, require all adult heads of households who have no objection, to keep a firearm in their house and receive yearly training, to help local authorities during disasters. THAT OBVIOUSLY WORKS, but you won't even acknowledge that.
No one should own a firearm as a matter of municipal 'expectation.' There's nothing worse than owning a firearm and not having the intestinal fortitude to pull the trigger when warranted; the result is usually tragically opposite of what was intended. Your example doesn't make logical sense. Why require citizens of a community to own a weapon with the option to opt out if they are uncomfortable possessing them? If you wanted a firearm you will already have made the purchase.
