Excerpt from New York Times newspaper:

"WASHINGTON, Aug. 29 — A spate of gang shootings. Auto thefts up in every police district. A breakdown in the city's 911 system. A serial arsonist at large.

It has not been a good year for crime fighting in the nation's capital.

Or murder capital, as it were. Washington has reclaimed the distinction — which it held for much of the 1980's and early 1990's — from Detroit, recording the nation's highest homicide rate for large cities in 2002: 45 per 100,000 residents. It is on pace to surpass last year's total."

Interesting how, in this two page article, no mention was made of the nations most restrictive gun laws failing to solve the problem. I suppose the good news is that no new gun laws were proposed.

Yes, that's true, DOK -

Also, when the nutcase in Chicago gunned downed 6 people, it wasn't mentioned about the most restrictive laws being recently passed there. A convicted felon that was barred from having firearms, yet all the laws in the country failed to stop him from obtaining the handgun used.

Wonder why responsible, thinking people turn a deaf ear to such omissions and continue supporting more laws on top of laws that only the law abiding will comply with - criminals could care less how many are passed.
