"Based on homicides per one million population, people in the United States are about six times more likely to be killed by firearms than people in Canada."

"In all of Toronto last year, there were 64 homicides; 26 involved guns. In Buffalo, with a population one-tenth the size, there were 51 homicides and 31 involved guns."

"Statistics show that Canadian citizens own far fewer guns than Americans, and far fewer guns wind up in the hands of criminals."

"Gun control advocates say a stringent Canadian law requiring registration of all firearms has halted the flow of unregulated guns, resulting in fewer deaths and injuries."

"I have no problem with hunters having weapons; my father actually put food on our table with game when I was a child. But do sportsmen and women really need to bag Bambi with a Smith & Wesson .22 Masterpiece double action revolver?"

"These thoughts have been on my mind lately because of a story my son related about his summer construction job. Recently, the company had him working up in Oracle. At lunchtime, he and the 40-year-old supervisor went to a local Circle-K. In the 30 minutes they were there, he said, he saw three people with handguns: A man wearing one in a shoulder holster, another carrying one in a hip holster and a woman pulling one out of her purse while digging for her wallet."

"...a woman was violently attacked early Monday morning on the 10th floor of the Tower Place parking garage in downtown Cincinnati. With courage and a fair amount of luck she managed to fend off her knife-wielding attacker and run for help from another patron of the garage. ..." ...

"Far too many women suffer under the perception that they are too weak or that it is simply 'too scary' to defend themselves with a firearm. This is a serious educational gap that needs to be remedied. Food for thought--you never know where you will be when an attack might occur. Do you regularly carry and are you prepared? Is your wife prepared?"

"A good scattergun should be an essential component to any gun collection, and, fortunately, I own a few good ones. Until recently, my pair of Remington 1100s--a 20 gauge and 12 gauge--were the most utilized shotguns I've had. My dad bought the pair in the late '60s, and I've been shooting them since. But my collection was lacking, I felt, since I didn't own a good double."

"Budd Schroeder and Taurean Smith never met, but if they did, they'd have a lot to talk about."

"Both men are big Second Amendment supporters." ...

"Despite their common ground, these men are polar opposites. Schroeder, 69, lives in Lancaster and uses guns he legally purchased for recreation and sport. Smith, 22, lived on Buffalo's East Side and used guns he obtained illegally - including one of James Nigel Bostic's guns - to shoot people. He's now in prison."

"Schroeder and Smith represent the seemingly unyielding dilemma in the gun control debate: How do you keep guns away from gun runners and shooters like Bostic and Smith without violating the rights of honest gun lovers like Schroeder and his friends?"
