Typical right wing, extremist, despicable criticism which has no basis in fact. For one thing the majority of Americans want some form of common sense gun laws. Get that? "Empirical evidence"? Hardly! Of course such gun laws work, just look at every other first world nation that have them in place. You know lies and dissembling do not give credence to your faulty premise. I would cease the hyperbole and deal with facts if I were you.
