It had been so thoroughly demonstrated in the USA that gun control results in more crime and dead innocents that one wonders at the thought processes of the gun grabbers in Calif, NY, NJ, etc. But then if you think about it it makes sense. Criminals are the people with the most vested interest in maintaining a population of defenseless citizens. And gungrabber politicians are amongst the most criminally corrupt of all politicians. They fear that Joe 6pack might do the right thing when they send their RDA thugs to steal his home in favor of their mob buddies.
