    I was prowling around the internet today searching gun control laws by various states (searched on that subject). I noticed that the Brady Bunch grades every state by the quality of it's gun control laws and by it's effort to initiate tighter controls. (That's by their definition of quality and effort).


    I see that Texas gets a big fat D- (D Minus).......I guess we fall short of Sarah's expectations.......:)

    Wonder what we have to do to get an F.........;)

    "Texas has strict gun laws." TEXAS GUNOWNERS' GUIDE.

    Well, so much for reading books. Maybe it's all relative?

    Didn't check but a few states. Here's the URL. It directly address's laws relative to protecting children. If you read through it and the criterion, you'll see that it's based on the usual anti-gun elements.

    http://www.bradycampaign.org/press/rc02/index.asp?state=TX

    Down at the bottom, it will ask if you want to select another state.

    I checked a few annd I see that Kentucky failed but Arizona and Florida did better than Texas. It also states that 29 states received D's or F's.

    Yexas may be strict El Tejon but I like my chances and my situation here better than some other places.

    Oh, Indiana's only a D- and we have much worse laws than Tejas by Sarah's own standards. I demand a re-grade!

    BTW, they say 94 "children" were killed by guns in Indiana. 1. How many guns were prosecuted for their horrific crimes, 2. of those 94 how many were in Indianapolis and Gary combined?;)

    I'm really glad that Louisiana got an F. And I quote, "In 1998, the most recent year for which data is available, 124 children and teenagers in Louisiana died from gunfire." 1998! ***, that's 4 years ago, and I bet if they looked at those numbers it was a lot of gang and drug related violence. Damn the blissninnies.

    “El Tejonâ€,

    All of Texas laws are strict. Haven’t you heard, we have things we call “hanging judges†and we enjoy criminals getting the book thrown at them. You’d think a guy going around calling himself “The Texan†would know this. :rolleyes: ... ;)



    BTW, Any gun related law is too many. I’m all for getting rid of all of them.

    I see Colorado got only a C-. You've got my word I'm going to do my best to make sure Colorado gets an F from the leftist extremists next year.

    I LOVE this tidbit of propoganda:

    Gee. Doesn't that mean all we need to do is increase the amount of grading the Brady Campaign performs? Numbers don't lie, and it's the grading Brady performs that saves the lives of children!

    No need to pass new laws. The grading alone will do!

    Nevada only gets a D also. We will have to work harder in the new year.

    Nevada received a D because it has a very weak juvenile possession law; has no safety design standards for handguns; does not require background checks on private sales, including those at gun shows; forces police to let people carry hidden handguns in public; and prevents cities and counties from enacting stricter laws to prevent gun violence, and from holding the gun industry accountable for its negligent practices (such as failing to include basic safety features on guns that would prevent unintentional shootings). The state does have an adequate Child Access Prevention law. In 1998, the most recent year for which data is available, 48 children and teenagers in Nevada died from firearm injuries.

    From now on, we should post this resource when someone is thinking about moving to a free state. This evaluation of Nevada should be posted on the state web page and given out at every chamber of commerce. When I read their evaluation, I was proud as a peacock.

    Here is typical anti-gun logic; In 1998, the most recent year for which data is available, 499 children and teenagers in California died from gunfire. In 1998, the most recent year for which data is available, 48 children and teenagers in Nevada died from firearm injuries. Louisiana received an F in 2001, because it is among the worst states in the nation at protecting its children from gun violence.124 children and teenagers in Louisiana died from gunfire.
    Yet in their eyes ********** gets a A-
    Now that is progress.

    One thing that bugs me most about HCI is that they think the executors of the law should have a say in what the law says.

    It is preposterous that they police should have any more say than anyone else in what they laws are.

    Yet they prattle on...
