    I think the reason most southern cities never had a problem with organized crime like Boston did is specifically because of our high gun ownership.

    Maybe they should figure out what sub groups in the population are shooting each other and then stop subsidizing their reproduction.

    It's always easier for government to regulate and direct the legal citizens, because they generally will listen and do as the "law" says. This is done more and more because it is something they can push in the media as "constructive effort", while they know that the percentage of the population primarily responsible for the majority of crime, will not listen and ignore authority. It looks good on paper.

    Criminals already do not obey the law, why would they listen to a public figure telling them what to do. This will accomplish nothing, and the government knows it. You beat the animal that will tolerate it, the animal that won't is a threat to you and won't stand for it.

    By the way, I have a drawer full of "gun locks", anyone know where I could get money for them............Maybe I could sell them to criminals. Why do people that don't own guns, don't like guns nor the people that own them, always try tell you how and what to do with your guns............

    We are told by our government NOT to judge Muslims by the actions of a few crazies. We are also told by this same government TO judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few crazies.

    Let's see if I have this straight. He wants to take civilians guns because he doesn't want the criminals to get hurt, or to steal guns. How about rounding up the criminals and keeping them in jail/prison instead of turning them loose so they will become repeat criminals. I would think he would be more worried about honest citizens, and them being able to protect themselves. I want to tell you, our government has sure gone to pot.

    No it's more classist. Poor people tend to make poor decisions and have rotten impulse control. If we stop paying them to breed we will have less of them and less crime. Of course some politicians will have less votes so there is almost no chance of that happening.

    Article says this is the "first" step... I hate to imagine what steps 2, 3 and 4 will be... but as I do recall my history, I can well imagine. Concord, Lexington, TO ARMS TO ARMS THE MAYOR IS COMING!

    The comments below the linked article are spot on and pretty much mimic the crowd here... for the most.

    Will they be sending out letters to all who own pressure cookers one wonders?

    It seems to me that the Government should declare all the organized gangs in the country as domestic terrorists and have the Dept. of Homeland Security hunt them down like the dogs they are! Now, I realize the DHS couldn't catch a cold, naked in Antarctica, but maybe they would get lucky and at least have some affect on these gangs. These gangs along with the loonies are the cause of most of the "gun violence" in the country. I know that the liberals aren't really interested in doing anything that might be constructive to actually solve the problem, since it's much easier to just point a finger at legal gun owners and call us "nuts" and say that we and our damn guns are the real problem. Damn Bill of Rights! Of course if they worked at solving the real problem then they wouldn't have anything to whine about.

    Add sedatives to the food at Mickey D's Burger King Taco Bell and Bojangles and you solve 90% of these problems.
