While I am waiting Chew On these Stats
Every 2 minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted.
Here's the math. According to the U.S. Department of Justice's National Crime Victimization Survey --there is an average of 207,754 victims (age 12 or older) of rape and sexual assault each year.
There are 525,600 minutes in a non-leap year. That makes 31,536,000 seconds/year. So, 31,536,000 divided by 207,754 comes out to 1 sexual assault every 152 seconds, or about 1 every 2 minutes.

My point is that we need to worry less about "Gun Control" and worry more about what it means to be a responsible citizen. You use the Zimmerman Case like we have an epdemic of such cases...I am sad because right or wrong does not bring a 17 year old back....
Why don't you call the recent victims of sexual assault in your local area and ask them if they believe in Gun Control? If you were faced with a possible sexual assualt would you like the right to defend your self with everything including deadly force?12 months ago
No I believe in Liberty and responsible gun ownership. I believe that we should not kill. But I also believe that the right to defend yourself against agression. I ask you a question, What takes more Lives, Guns or Cars? How many responsible car owners drink and drive?
