I am firmly opposed to more gun control laws (and wrote to Senator Toomey expressing that sentiment). However, the one good thing about laws requiring background checks to purchase guns, is that a photo ID is req'd. This establishes a precedent that presentation of a photo ID can be required in order to excercise a constitutional right. Perhaps this precedent can be used to nullify Dem's objection to photo ID's when voting.
Amid all the heated, emotional advocacy of gun control, have you ever heard even one person present convincing hard evidence that tighter gun control laws have in fact reduced murders?

Think about all the states, communities within states, as well as foreign countries, that have either tight gun control laws or loose or non-existent gun control laws. With so many variations and so many sources of evidence available, surely there would be some compelling evidence somewhere if tighter gun control laws actually reduced the murder rate.

And if tighter gun control laws don't actually reduce the murder rate, then why are we...
