Proposed House Bill 5573 would require people to register every gun and get fingerprinted, at a cost of $100/gun, both long guns and pistols. Current law forbids registration, this would completely reverse the law. It also requires every gun sold to have a mechanism to prevent firing included with it.

I've already written my rep. Thankfully she's pro 2A. In a matter of minutes, she wrote me back. She says there is little support for the bill and she is going to contact the sponsoring rep to try and have it pulled. I knew I voted for her for a reason...

Their violent crime rate over the last decade averages ~250/100,000, just over half that of the USA average (460/100,000). Their murder rate is 3/100,000 (basically same as CO), also about half that of the USA average (~5.5/100,000 over the last decade).

Yup, pretty dangerous place..........




Incidentally, the murder rate in the USA has dropped consistently, with a couple spikes, since 1980, when it was 10.2/100,000. 2011, at 4.6/100,000, represents the lowest rate in a half century (tied with '62 & '63, most recent lower rate was '57). Doesn't really follow the liberal plea to stop the increasing (?) violence.......
