Daleys vehement opposition to private handgun ownership exemplifies the demagoguery which the entire gun prohibition movement embraces in its campaign of public disarmament. The people have wised up. As a result, anti-gun groups have lost so much momentum that they have been unable to push their agenda even with a Congress controlled by the far left fringe of the Democrat party, and with an anti-gun president in the White House.
Americans are not as gullible as the gun prohibition lobby thought. The public has seen restrictive gun laws fail. Gun-free zones havent stopped shootings at schools or shopping malls. Gun bans havent prevented soaring murder rates in Washington, D.C. or Chicago, or stopped gang violence in California and elsewhere. These measures have only given us a body count, and the MSNBC.com report suggests America has had enough.

Of course, it gets worse for fans of victim disarmament. Since the DC gun ban was struck down, the murder rate there has fallen; precisely the opposite of the effect that they predicted.
I’ve been keeping up with the claims of the anti-gun people clear back to 1961 when Thomas J Dodd and Emanuell Cellar proposed a federal law to register ONLY handguns, and ban the import of army surplus rifles as they competed with american gun manufacturers.
By 1992 they were on a roll, now banning rifles and shotguns that looked evil.
Then on 9-11-2001 came the wake up call when Muslims with boxcutters killed about 3000 people. No guns involved.
Americans who were in favor of banning ugly guns suddenly found they may NEED those ugly guns to defend themselves. that is when the anti-gunners began to suffer real defeats.
