"Recently released data from the FBI clearly show that the dire predictions by anti- gunners last fall over the end of the so-called 'assault weapons ban' have proven to be groundless, the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) noted today."

"The FBI reported that for the first time since 1999, homicides declined last year 5.4 percent in cities with more than 1 million people, and overall, murders fell 3.6 percent nationwide." ...

"Here we are as a nation, nine months after the sunset of that onerous law... and all the doom and gloom has been exposed as pure claptrap. Not only are murder rates down, so are the overall rates for violent crime. ..."

"Agreeing with the anti-gun fanatics at VPC is the anti-gun fanatic at LAPD, Chief William Bratton, who tells Los Angeles Times readers '[M]ilitary-style assault weapons are not necessary for hunting or self-defense, but their light triggers and rapid-fire capability make them weapons of choice for criminals.'" ...

"Except the San Francisco Chronicle tells us 'AK-47s have emerged recently as ‘the gun of choice’ among San Francisco’s gang-bangers.'"

"And that’s not the only dissension in the ranks. According to Legal Affairs magazine, 'In the 1990s, manufacturers increased production of nine-millimeter handguns — the gun of choice for murderers.'"

The pros and cons of keeping guns in the house

"I've never seen a gun get up and shoot someone. It takes a human to aim and pull the trigger. My kids grew up with firearms in the house and never 'played' with them. They were taught how to handle a weapon safely, that it does kill, and people don't come back to life like on TV. Our weapons were always locked in one place and the ammo in another." ...

"I respect your opinion. But if someone is upset, angry, disturbed, and wants to take it out on someone, he or she will use what's available to do that. If he has access to lethal weapons, he can commit lethal acts."

"If he doesn't, the chances are greater that he'll not be able to inflict as much harm and might even have more time to think about what he's doing."

"...Sunday he came home to find his wife hysterical, someone shouting, 'He's got a gun!' and a burglar wearing Moler's own sweatpants, moving in and out of the house stealing rifles."

"Moler kicked into protection mode: He grabbed a pistol from his safe and confronted the wild-eyed 26-year-old in the front yard."

-------
Submitter's Note: Bizarre story, but here is an equally weird quote from the cops: "Haynes said it is somewhat unusual for someone to physically capture a burglar in or near their home. He said only about one or two times a month is someone captured while stealing from a home."

TWICE A MONTH!?! And he calls that unusual?
