      You don’t keep up on the news. After the gun ban was lifted in 2010 (thanks to the NRA), homicides went up 20%. Proof positive that an armed society is NOT a polite one.

        You should read more, ZEBRA STRIPES. The gun ban is still in effect due to foot dragging by your elected criminal Democrats! They do not care about hood rats or others they do not see as themselves!
