If you’re interested in a comparison, here are the figures from 2007: Total homicides: 14,916 Homicides committed with firearms: 10,129 Homicides committed with handguns: 7,398 Homicides committed with rifles: 453 Homicides committed with shotguns: 457 Homicides committed with “other guns”: 116 Homicides committed with “firearms, type not stated”: 1,705 You’ll notice that the homicide-by-gun rate has dropped across-the-board since 2007....WITHOUT ANY NEW GUN CONTROL LAWS.

You've probably heard the old joke about how the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms should be a convenience store not a federal agency, but the latest ATF screw up in Wisconsin proves they aren't even capable of doing that properly. From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

A store calling itself Fearless Distributing opened early last year on an out-of-the-way street in Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood, offering designer clothes, athletic shoes, jewelry and drug paraphernalia.

Those working behind the counter, however, weren't interested in selling anything.

They were undercover agents from the U.S....
