    Addicted to guns? Are they "shooting" the guns, or are they pulling the bullets and snorting the powder :confused: :rolleyes:

    I wrote a letter to them expressing my displeasure about how they are labeling guns in general as evil, giving legalistic qualities to inanimate objects, and just missing the point in general re: Rochester NY. Crime is the issue, not the guns.

    I encourage anyone with some free time on their hands to draft up a one or two paragraph email for the author of that article too.

    That's exactly what they're saying... as if melting all the guns down would suddenly make all the criminals into productive citizens.

    That's a logical statement, I think.

    I personally would question this guy's credibility, or the credibility of his sources. According to him, 75% of the illegal guns were stolen. Nationwide, however according to the BATF report, only 24.9% of illegal guns are traced to having been stolen. It sounds to me like he's making up statistics as he goes along.

    Perfect reason to write him an email! :) I've gotten sick of reading bad reporting in this paper over the years. Problem is, my one letter never makes a difference.

    Nope, it's not you. I'm sure the "newspaper" is just paving the way for the next example of legislative anti-Second Amendment bigotry.
