    OMG Guess what? Guns reduce crime!!
    Somebody pinch me!

    "Guns save lives," the brief said. "In the hands of law-abiding citizens, guns provide very substantial public safety benefits. In all 50 states – but not the District – it is lawful to use firearms for defense against home invaders. The legal ownership of firearms for home defense is an important reason why the American rate of home invasion burglaries is far lower than in countries which prohibit or discourage home handgun defense."
    The brief said handgun owne

    That's like us regular enlisted folks when politicians come visit in Iraq. I've never got within line-of-sight with one of them let alone actually talked to one. I once saw a report on a cop in Texas who was shot at by gang banger. He ran to a truck stopped in traffic and asked the guy in it if the had a gun. The guy said "yessir" the cop said "would you mind grabbing it and giving me some help?"
