BY BARBARA HOWARD
In June, when the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Washington, D.C.’s 32-year-old gun ban, gun enthusiasts hailed the historic ruling as, “a great moment in American history” as Wayne La Pierre, vice president of the NRA, said.
At the same time, liberals like D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty, lamented that the ruling would “lead to more handgun violence.”
While I sympathize with the D.C. mayor, I fail to see what impact the tough ban has had on gun violence. In fact, statistics show that the only effect the ban had was that law-abiding citizens could not defend themselves in their own homes.

Slowly, the mindset is changing, perhaps. I liked this:
Unfortunately, many communities refuse to even acknowledge their gang problem, even though many citizens express fear of continual violence in their neighborhoods and fear for their children.
Funny, I can’t find one reference to people being afraid of the NRA or law-abiding citizens having guns.
