Listening to the BBC last night, they kept referring to gun freedoms as the Wild Wild West... I could not help but laugh... boy are they uninformed...I find it amazing that the gun grabbers use the same tired reasons to ban guns in D.C. that they used way back when Florida enacted the earliest CCW in the 1980's. "Blood in the streets" "Citizens shooting up schools, work, out of control" "No control! No Control! No Control!"
Control is what they are about.
Same crap, different century.

Gun control is not about crime control, it's about citizen controlAnise Jenkins, president of a coalition called Stand Up for Democracy in D.C., defended the district's prohibition on handguns.
"We feel our local council knows what we need for a good standard of life and to keep us safe," Jenkins said.
... and where does Washington D.C. sit as one of America's most violent cities? What is the murder rate vs. a city with legal handgun ownership? Does this person see the slums in Washington D.C. and then boast about the good standard of living? Apparently not...
Truly, now what is this moron smoking?
You hit it on the head there... self defense is nobody else's job other than your own. The police are NOT your private security detail and for the most part, are reactionary.I believe one needs to recognize Self Defense as an inherent right. Others can't keep you "safe" -- only you can do that (in any venture). Self defense is a basic human right which can be augmented by, but never delegated to, others.
