Gun control: An opinion

I was appalled to read in the paper recently that the law-abiding residents of Tucson brought all their firearms to the police to be destroyed. Did the robbers, the rapists, the murderers, the drug addicts and other assorted criminals and vagrants currently walking the streets, also turn in their firearms? Do the residents of Tucson really think the police can protect all the citizens all the time? I think not!


What has changed?

Many Americans have had lots of guns for lots of years.  Before the 30's you could even own a machine gun!  Still can with a $200 federal license if you can pass a close look by law enforcement.
