As for Mexico, really? You picked a country falling apart at the seams to make your point? Yes, let's use Iraq, Afghanistan and Mexico to make our points here. Pick some other countries not in the middle of a war. You can even stay in the same neighborhood. Let's compare El Salvador (with almost no gun laws at all), Nicaragua (with comprehensive registration laws) and Costa Rica (with what you would consider draconian gun bans).

Let's put on our **IMAGINATION** caps and see if we can guess what sorts of gun homicide rates we will find in each of those countries if we were to look closely.

Pick and choose pot meet kettle.

Where I'm from when the guns come out it's for hunting and target shooting. People open carry all the time it's nothing to see someone strapped. Does it make me feel like a scared little girl, no. Does it make me fear for my life, no. I understand it's a hell of a lot different in LA but not every place or person with a gun is like LA.

Yay can't wait.

We'll just have to agree to disagree on this one.

You might shoot your eye out therefor they must be banned. Hope you like lettuce.

They say they're not after "hunting" rifles, yet, unless they have a pistil grip. But thats a slippery slope when the government gets involved it wont be long till they want them all.
