This is always the way. I once heard a State Senator in Massachusetts talking about the State house. He said that the parking lot was always filled with the cars of the Democrat State senators by 7:30am - they just couldn't wait to get in and start legislating. While the Republicans rolled in at 9:30 or 10am. . Democrats LOVE telling people what to do, while Republicans have the attitude of live and let live as long as somebody doesn't get them riled up. . We need to view liberalism as a snake with multiple heads. The only way to live a peaceful life is to kill the snake and cut off all its heads - otherwise it will keep coming back.
I think that Senator Hudak was right - SHE would not have needed a gun to prevent rape...
Sorry but you're wrong. Silverman IS funny - she's just politically naive. Here's one of her jokes: . I have a long neck, that's probably one of my best features. Out of many good features. But it's... . I've a very swan-like neck. . And my neck is actually six inches long, completely flaccid. . I am cheating. I'm measuring from the base of my balls. .
I have probably been to more countries than you and I was born in europe. Why don't you tell us where you are located so that we can explain to you where you have made your mistake?
I looked at the table that you posted the link too and there is an obvious problem - it shows TOTAL number of violent crimes - not PER CAPITA violent crimes. If you look at all the countries in the world in descending order by homicide rate per 100,000 people annually you will see that the US comes in at number 108 (of 210). If guns were the cause of violent crime you would expect the US to be number one not number 108. Almost every single one of the countries that rate higher on this list than the US have very strict gun control. The controlling factor is not the guns - it is the people.
Europe is not like the US demographically. Comparing the US to europe is comparing apples and oranges. If you only look at european countries you will notice that Russia has very strict gun control laws while Switzerland requires that every household maintain an assault rifle. But Switzerland has very low violent crime rates while Russia has very high violent crime rates. The difference is not the guns - it is the people. If you look at all the countries in the world in descending order by homicide rate per 100,000 people annually you will see that the US comes in at number 108 (of 210). If guns were the cause of violent crime you would expect the US to be number one not number 108.
