I don't know where Mr. Dimmer got his facts, but I googled and found that he's right. As 2010 is not yet over, New Orleans has the highest murder rate per capita for the past 10 years. There's a lot variables they throw in with these statistics i.e. straw law buying of guns, statistics of killings broken down by race etc. Their laws are kind of fast and loose.

However, in Chicago which is in the country's top 10 cities for murder, the murder rate has actually increased since the implementaton of stricter laws banning handgun ownership. There has only been down three years (not consecutively) in the last 19 years that the murder rate attributed to gun use has been down.

There's pretty much a mixed bag of statistics, but overall stricter laws banning guns do very little to deter crime, especially gang related crime and murders which is on the increase and gang members will get their guns regardless of laws.

No, but I would definitely support the sterilization of liberal gun grabbers and their enablers.

2nd amendment protects the right to individual gun ownership. That should include handguns.

Guns don't kill people. People kill people.
Ban guns and then only criminals will have guns.
