    "As the NRA pointed out last week, the FBI has preliminarily reported a four percent drop in the number of violent crimes from 2010 to 2011, the 18th drop in the last 20 years. Violent crime is now at about a 41-year low.

    Washington Times*reporter Emily Miller*asked*the NRA and the Brady Campaign for their opinions about the trend. The NRA responded that crime has decreased as the number of Right-to-Carry states has risen to an all-time high.

    However, Miller noted, "The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence did not respond to requests for comment." Miller added, "Gun‑control advocates are noticeably silent when crime rates decline. Their multimillion‑dollar lobbying efforts are designed to manufacture mass anxiety that every gun owner is a potential killer. The statistics show otherwise."

    I'm going O/T a bit, but your thread reminded me of that little 14 year old boy who saved his little brother's and sisters lives today, (aged 8, 10 and 12) after an armed intruder broke down their front door. The boy grabbed his fathers gun and shot the intruder.

    14-year-old Phoenix boy shoots, nearly kills armed intruder

    Who knows what would have happened if he had not loaded his father weapon and fired.

    The anti-gun lobby spent $60,000 in 2007, the pro gun lobby spent nearly two million, if gun control advocates are silent it is because they did not have enough money to keep an office open anymore, it's a dead issue, point to some anti-gun lobbyists that have even a fraction of the cash and access of the NRA. What are they even good for?

    I heard they re-named the Washington to the Clinton because of the phal - Well. You know.

    So what do you think about the thousands of children who have accidentally killed themselves or a friend with their father's weapon?

    When the terms "liberal policy and "monumental failure" appear in the same sentence, it is called a "redundancy".

    Irresponsible parents.....Before you knee jerk your way into a fury, answer this, should cars be banned because "kids will always figure out where the keys are hidden"?
    Answer this....How many kids have been killed by weapons illegally stored in the home and how many of those parents or guardians were criminals?
    The bottom line is this. An unarmed society is a society of victims.

    Their parents or the person owning the weapon should have put a device on the weapon or secured it. One needs to be responsible when owning a gun.

    Not if the entire society is unarmed.
