Our Founders were so much more intelligent then the pitiful uneducated leadership we have today. Even when they attend our best colleges they come away dumber then the people who went to High School in the 1800s. We are not allowed to really Educate our people lest we offend the truly stupid we have running around.

There was so much hair pulling over the Zimmerman defense shooting a group of moms asked the Florida legislature to reconsider Stand Your Ground. They reviewed it, and today overwhelmingly voted to keep it. Sorry moms. Better teach your young to be respectful of their elders, and not try to bang their heads on the sidewalk.

Gun Violence is Not a Republican Problem, Itís a Democratic Problem
...67% of firearm murders took place in the countryís 50 largest metro areas. The 62 cities in those metro areas have a firearm murder rate of 9.7, more than twice the national average. Among teenagers the firearm murder rate is 14.6 or almost three times the national average.
Those are the crowded cities of Obamerica. Those are the places with the most restrictive gun control laws and the highest crime rates. And many of them have been run by Democrats and their political machines for almost as long as they have been broken.
Obama won every major city in the election, except for Jacksonville and Salt Lake City. And the higher the death rate, the bigger his victory.
He won New Orleans by 80 to 17 where the murder rate is ten times higher than the national average. He won Detroit, where the murder rate of 53 per 100,000 people is the second highest in the country and twice as high as any country in the world, including the Congo and South Africa. He won it 73 to 26. And then he celebrated his victory in Chicago where the murder rate is three times the statewide average....

It is neither.
It is a human behavior not confined to any party and just involves the misuse of a tool.

f you think gun control legislation hasn’t moved in this country since the Newtown shooting, think again. There’s been plenty of activity in the states, even though no gun legislation has passed through Congress. And while states that passed tougher restrictions on gun ownership receive plenty of attention, several states have moved in the opposite direction.

Lawmakers in Connecticut, one of the latest states to take action, approved a package early Thursday beefing up gun laws. Here’s a look at states that have passed or considered gun legislation since the Newtown shooting:

APPROVED MORE GUN RESTRICTIONS

california, new york, colorado, etc.etc.
The activity is the increase in the numbers of people buying guns

Just like what happened when Zim shot the gangster ashtray

Millions of people bought guns in Florida alone

The recently released FBI's crime statistics for 2012, once again show the American South dominating the list of states with the highest per capita homicide rates. Louisiana led the nation with a murder rate of 10.8 homicides per 100,000 population. Louisiana's Southern neighbor, Mississippi was second with a homicide rate of 7.4 per 100,000. Alabama (7.1), Michigan (7.0) and South Carolina (6.9) rounded out the top five most murderous U.S. states in 2012. Missouri (6.5), Tennessee (6.0), Georgia and Arkansas also ranked in the top ten states, with Georgia and Arkansas tying for 10th at 5.9 murders per 100,000.

<quoted text>USA TODAY Poll: Public support for gun control ebbs
Susan Page, USA TODAY8:14 a.m. EDT April 23, 2013

WASHINGTON -- Four months after the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School, a USA TODAY Poll finds support for a new gun-control law ebbing as prospects for passage on Capitol Hill seem to fade.

Americans are more narrowly divided on the issue than in recent months, and backing for a bill has slipped below 50%, the poll finds. By 49%-45%, those surveyed favor Congress passing a new gun-control law. In an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll in early April, 55% had backed a stricter gun law, which was down from 61% in February.

Support for gun control slips below 50 percent after Senate vote
By Justin Sink - 04/23/13 11:16 AM ET

Fewer than 50 percent of Americans say they support stricter gun controls, according to a survey released Tuesday ¬ó the first time since December's Newtown, Conn., elementary school shooting that less than half of those surveyed say they would back a new gun law.

According to the USA Today survey, 49 percent of Americans say they support passing a new gun control law while 45 percent oppose new legislation. That's down from 55 percent who supported new regulations in April and 61 percent in February.

Last week, Senate Democrats failed to win the 60 votes necessary to move forward on a compromise bill that would have expanded background checks and instituted new penalties on so-called straw purchasers. Senate leaders had already acknowledged they were unlikely to win enough votes on an assault weapons ban or legislation limiting the size of magazine capacities ¬ó two suggestions of President Obama's gun violence commission.

Americans undergo stunning gun control shift, new poll finds
Monday, October 28, 2013

The call for stricter gun control has waned since the Newtown, Conn., school shooting at the end of 2012, a Gallup poll released Friday found.

In the days following the school shooting, which killed 20 children and six staff members, 58 percent of those polled wanted stricter gun control. Now, almost a year after the December shooting, that number has dropped to 49 percent.

SPECIAL COVERAGE: Second Amendment and Gun Control

The drop also means the country now is split nearly evenly on whether gun control laws need to be stricter. On the other side of the 49 percent who want stricter laws, 50 percent want laws to either be less strict or kept the same.

The poll also found that 74 percent of respondents are opposed to a law that would ban handguns, except for use by police and other law enforcement. Only about a quarter think the use of handguns should be limited only to authorized personnel.
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/oct/...

Washington, D.C., which has some of the most stringent 'gun control' laws in the nation. Yet it also has one of the highest murder rates? And then there's N.Y.C. and Chicago, BOTH with extremely stringent 'gun control' laws:

FBI: Chicago passes New York as murder capital of U.S.
