VA: Readers' Rebuttal: Gun Confiscation Won't Stop Crime

... "Editor, Times-Dispatch: The anti-gun letter from Allan Ross totally disregards a couple of things."

"First, there are an estimated 2 million to 3 million yearly uses of firearms to prevent or stop crimes. If all firearms are locked up as he would like, they would not be available for self-protection. A very important, recent U.S. Supreme Court decision ruled that police do not have an obligation to protect citizens."

"Ross seems to assume criminals will follow the new laws he proposes -- ones that would essentially make the private ownership of guns impractical. The gun violence we all hate is caused primarily by criminals who will not stop using guns because of more laws. If it were that simple, some of the 22,000 existing laws would have stopped the violence." ...

"A contentious bill that would allow Wisconsin residents to carry concealed guns has acquired a new layer of controversy - this time over the state's public records law."

"Deputy Attorney General Dan Bach said legislators must release a draft of the bill because the National Rifle Association and others outside the Legislature had a hand in writing the legislation."

"But Rep. Scott Gunderson (R-Waterford), one of the bill's authors, said he was refusing to turn it over on the grounds that bills are confidential until they are formally introduced. Besides, Gunderson said, no one other than lawmakers and their staffs has seen or worked on the latest version of the bill." ...

"The use of crossbows for hunting is a hot issue for sportsmen, not only in New York but also across the nation."

"There appears to be no middle ground, with a canyon of difference of opinion between those who would welcome and those who would oppose the use of crossbows. My position is clear: There is no rational reason for not allowing the use of crossbows during hunting season, especially bow season."

"However, there are many emotional reasons from those who spend time and money convincing others that crossbows should never be used. I use the word emotional because there is little fact behind any argument on this issue. Let's examine a few of their claims." ...
