I totally agree, but look at the murder rate per capita. Flint , Michigan has been in the top ten for years. I believe in the last three it's been higher than Chicago. Anyways those gun laws are bs. It's been proven that when a larger percent of the population legally own guns that violent crime goes down in that area. When you take guns from law abiding citizens you inevitably end up with more criminals with guns. I could easily go get an unregistered firearm just as easily and rather cheaper than a legal one. I just choose to follow the law in most cases rather than try and oppose the legal mafia that is the legal system in this country.
