Susanna Hupp, a brave young lady testifying about her experience with gun control. The Luby's shooting of Oct 1991. If a carpenter drove a nine inch nail into a piece of hardwood in one stroke, he would not have done as good of job of hitting the nail on its head as Ms Hupp does in this video!
Here are a few comments from our local supporters:
More than 3000 times every day, an American citizen deters a crime with a gun. It's not news. There is no fanfare. The criminals are motivated to move on. They are out there looking for easier victims. You may want to purchase a gun before the 10 day waiting period seems like an infringement of your right to protect yourself and your family. Be sure to learn firearm safety and the proper ways to handle a gun. Be sure your family learns too!
200,000,000 guns owned by American Citizens killed no one yesterday.
When someone quotes you figures about how many people are killed by gun violence everday, we need to ask them:
How many were killed by law enforcement officers?
How many were killed by hired security officers protecting the lives of honest citizens?
How many were killed because a drug deal went bad?
How many were killed by gang bangers killing other gang bangers?
How many of these killings occurred between pimps, prostitutes and their Johns?
Another reasonable question might be, "How many homicides are committed everyday by people with a concealed carry weapons permit?"
Some of you will be surprised at how close this number is to zero.
Another reasonable question might be, "How many crimes are prevented every day (without firing a shot) by honest citizens who are in possession of a firearm?"
When you find the answers to these questions, you will begin to understand why we fight to protect the Second Amendment to our Constitution. Most gun laws tend to put us at more risk and make us less safe. Get the facts! Then join us in our battle to preserve the Freedom guaranteed by our U.S. Constitution.
The Jesse Jackson Brady Million Mom March group held an anti-gun forum in San Diego on August 25, 2007 at the Church of the Brethren. 3850 Westgate Place at 7:00 PM. The organizer and speaker were joined by three (3) attendees. Two TV crews were there. A few of us were there protesting.

Question: Your argument about criminals and deterrence doesn't tell the whole story. Don't statistics show that most people are killed by someone they know?
Lott: You are referring to the often-cited statistic that 58 percent of murder victims are killed by either relatives or acquaintances. However, what most people don't understand is that this "acquaintance murder" number also includes gang members killing other gang members, drug buyers killing drug pushers, cabdrivers killed by customers they picked up for the first time, prostitutes and their clients, and so on. "Acquaintance" covers a wide range of relationships. The vast majority of murders are not committed by previously law-abiding citizens. Ninety percent of adult murderers have had criminal records as adults.
