You seem to be so well versed in the use, or should I say ABuse, of statistics. Why do you think the "right to keep and bear arms" was the second amendment and not the 10th. Is it maybe more important than the 8 that follow it but not more than the one it follows. How do you defend what you are speaking if the Government is the only one with the fire power to shut you up? You really need to shed that public school education and do some real reading of real history. I suppose I should get rid of all my fire extinguishers because the fire house is just 2 miles away.
