    Mayors vow to snuff out gun crime

    Please read this link. Again the only gun control that the politician can provide would be the control of those weapons that are legally owned! Not those that are illegal. What are these Yo-Yo's thinking?

    Yep - it (control) has already deprived law abiding folk in some places of any right of self defence. All the while the crooks will be laughing all the way to their next crime!

    It is indeed down to control - and of course ''feelgood'' factors which they hope catch votes. Oh, the blindness of so many

    By removing your ability to defend yourself, it makes you all that more dependant on the government... and nobody loves "the power" like a self-important big city Mayor.

    You have to understand the players!

    Mumbles Menino is a dummy, knows nothing about guns, and a great political grand-stander. Makes him look good to get re-elected each time, meanwhile does nothing to reduce crime.

    Man, these mayors must really be good if they are going to get all of the illegal guns "off the streets". Maybe we should send them to Iraq and they can pass some laws that make IEDs illegal. That should finally bring peace to the region.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    So what other crime isn't worth prosecuting? Guns make the crime more vial than someone that assaults women or children while using a baseball bat or a rock?

    I wonder when logic in this country went out of this country?

    No, they only vow to snuff out GUN crime. They don't care if other kinds of crime triple, quadruple, or go up a hundred times or more. For them, somehow, it's bad when someone gets killed by a criminal with a gun, but it's okay--fine! dandy! no problem!--when someone gets killed by a criminal with a knife, club, or whatever else.

    Frankly, I've gotten to the point where I just have to laugh at these people who talk about "gun crime." As if "gun crime" is somehow worse than any other kind of crime--yeah, like the victim cares!

    Gun tax

    Last month, the FBI said the number of violent crimes had jumped 2.3 percent in 2005 and a senior Justice Department official said it may keep rising this year.

    "The federal government has abandoned its obligation to public safety, and illegal guns are a national problem that demands a national response," Menino said.

    Gun trafficking in the northeastern United States has climbed in the past six years, according to Boston authorities. While Massachusetts laws are relatively strict, requiring a $100 state permit for each gun purchase, buying a gun in neighboring Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine is easier.

    2.3% rise in violent crime? Does this number include only handguns ? Knives? or any other device used for deadly purposes ? Seems to me the mere mention of the small, minuscule 2.3 % rise in violent crime can be dized and sliced a number of ways. If that number, 2.3% ONLY involves violent crimes with a handgun, then it might be worth mentioning, but at this point it only designated as "Violent Crime"

    A $100 dollar PER GUN state permit? In other words Mass TAXES it's residents each and every time they excercise thier right of the 2nd amendment. No !!, the 2nd Amendment is not being infringed, that is as long you pay Mass a $100 tax each and every time you want increase your collection, register is it local authorities, and become part of data base that is uncostitutional.

    "ILLEGAL GUNS"..............I'm alway's perplexed at this term. What exactly constitutes an "ILLEGAL GUN" Well, in Mass it's obvious, any gun that has not been taxed for a permit, and not part of thier uncosititutional data base of guns owned by residents.

    People of Mass...............Guns are not cars, you do not have to under the Constitution be taxed on them, regulate them, or supply law enforcement with a data base of what firearms you own. Mass get's away with with this because it's not been challenged in a higher court, as it should be. Problem is, is that both sides of the gun control debate fear LOSING !!! There fore it's just as easy to sit by and comply with uncontititutional laws and hinderances.
    Perhaps your sole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.

    +1. Wasn't there a SCOTUS case long ago called McCulloch v. Maryland, which said in part "the power to tax is the power to destroy?"

    I know, I know, the Second Amendment hasn't been "incorporated" yet.

    If there was ever a case of people trying to get their name in the paper.... this was it. Political agendas are only worse than one thing... Statistics.
