Not only do the Democrooks commit 3 out of 4 violent crimes in this country,
they also pass all kind of laws designed to deprive law-abiding Americans
of their inalienable right to defend themselves and their loved ones:

Study: Gun-lockup laws can be harmful
By Martin Kasindorf, USA TODAY

Laws that punish parents for failing to lock guns away from children cause
more violence than they prevent, a new statistical study concludes. Law
enforcement officials and gun control advocates, however, dispute the
findings.

In a study prepared for The Journal of Law & Economics, two researchers say
that "child access-prevention" laws, which are on the books in 17 states,
have failed to reduce accidental firearm deaths and suicides involving
children.

And, crime rates increase as predators invade homes where self-defense
weapons are hard to grab quickly, says John Lott Jr., a senior research
scholar at Yale Law School, and John Whitley of the University of Chicago.
"The only consistent impact of safe storage laws is to raise rape, robbery
and burglary rates, and the effects are very large," the authors say.

In 1996, they estimate, 15 states with such laws suffered a combined total
of about 3,800 more rapes, at least 21,000 more burglaries and at least
49,700 more robberies than they would have had without the laws.
