Washington, DC would be the safest place in the country."

Mark Steyn doesn't get out much - especially not in Europe.

    anonymous - WHAT ? ? ? How much do you get out ? Washington DC's gun laws are almost as restrictive as the whole of Europe. AND, there are far more guns in Switzerland (per person and in total) than in DC. The theocratic sub-culture of the occupying statist theocracy is what generates the violence in its patrons. If guns were not available, knives and clubs would likely be the tool of choice. By personal observation, I witnessed far more Dutch with guns than what I've heard purported in DC. I don't particularly care for the comparison but it does serve as a spot light on the idiot anti - gunners.

    History repeats it self again. The city with the most gangsters and banksters ! Chicago, LA, NY, Miami, Tampa, St Louie, Houston, and DC to top them all.

    We cannot continue to distribute firearms to individuals with no more maturity than that of a child. Who has the mind of a child? Anyone who needs firearms to conduct their activities.
     -- Fredrick William Sillik, Anytown     
    The more gun control, the more gun crime because no one can easily defend themselves against an armed criminal.  The proof is in the lawless ghettos.  This is intentional, because victim-consciousness is a tool for politicians to then promise to 'save' the people from their powerlessness.  They must self-identify as a victim and be entirely dependent upon government subsidy to survive  they will never vote the 'saviors' out of office because those that became self-sufficient got the hell off the plantation.

    The poor are a protected class of generational dependence -- they are yoked to their government's bribes for votes.

    Socialism is not a solution to poverty, it is a primary cause of disempowerment.
