do we have a uniform crime report like that of the FBI? so we can at least have some real hard copy basis on our belief that the street crime rate increases during the comelec gun bans. and though it still would not prove that the ban is the cause, at least until someone can come up with a better explanation, the burden of proof is, morally, at the gubment. not that they will care or do anything about it. don't get me wrong, i am soooooooooo against the comelec *and* its gun ban, even gun registration is something that in my belief is oppressive. our carrying of firearms no way uses up any government resource (as it is when one drives a car, one wears and tears the roads which is gubment property). they only use up government resources like time, personnel, money, paper, ballistics lab, etcetera because they insist on registering every piece of pipe that can be used as a pressure chamber and hurl a projectile....ang masama is we pay for this registration.
