The FBI just released their crime report for last year and the results should come as no surprise to anyone here: As gun ownership has gone up, violent crime has gone down. So, with all these stats from their own government agencies, how can any politician out there still be anti-gun? This should be a total no-brainer.

That's because they are driven by emotion and not facts. There are people that will never like guns or accept that guns are a part of our history and culture. By their logic, Chicago and New York would be the safest places and Missouri would be the war zone. Make no mistake, we still have crime and criminals. However, we have the means to protect ourselves and that gives the dirtbags a reason to think twice. Some people no matter what will never acknowledge this.

no-brainer, that seems to sum up a politician during an election cycle....;)
