    Gun crime prosecutions on decline, amid call for more laws

    However, recent studies show the Obama administration has not enforced many gun laws already on books -- with gun crime prosecutions hitting a decade low in 2011, down 40 percent from their peak under President George W. Bush in 2004, according to federal data crunched by Syracuse University. The SU study prompted 23 House Republicans on Friday to call on President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to prosecute more people for gun-related crimes.

    Kinda sounds to me like Obummer keeps shooting himself in the foot. If gun crime prosecutions are *ON THE DECLINE* then perhaps America is actually SAFER than what the Prez sez. That tells me about all I need to know. Lawyers are liars. Most politicians started out as lawyers. Let's see now...what's that childhood rhyme? Oh yeah...Liar liar, pants on fire...
    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.
    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
    Give me Liberty or give me BACON!!!

    VERY interesting... this goes along nicely with Biden's comment that the Administration doesn't have the time to prosecute the people breaking gun laws now.
