That's the problem with these "fire and brimstone" whiners who want to deny our Second Amendment Rights. The pick and choose what particular incidents to portray their examples. It's curious how they never portray or publicize incidents where innocent lives were SAVED by an individual who was a legal weapon owner during a criminal incident. You can pick up and read almost any weapons magazine and find article after article after article where legal gun owners have saved lives by either threats of killing or actual killing of perpetrators of crimes.

It's easy to manipulate statistics to say whatever you want them to. There is no truth and integrity anymore. People have an agenda and to them, the end justifies the means even if they do irreparable damage along the way. I don't own a gun, but I'm a strong proponent of the Second Amendment. I believe in the Constitution and this country and what it stands for. I have seen what disarming the population of certain countries has resulted in. Talk about mass murder. Hitler, Stalin and other dictators and governments who disarmed their citizens had full control and were able to eliminate those who disagreed with their policies. We don't need that or want that here.

In the wake of a monstrous crime like a madman's mass murder of defenseless women and children at the Newtown, Conn., elementary school, the nation's attention is riveted on what could have been done to prevent such a massacre.

Luckily, some years ago, two famed economists, William Landes at the University of Chicago and John Lott at Yale, conducted a massive study of multiple victim public shootings in the United States between 1977 and 1995 to see how various legal changes affected their frequency and death toll.

Landes and Lott examined many of the very policies being proposed...
