...to disarm criminals but only law abiding citiziens" These words were reported by Italian media. Defence Minister De Martino added that he never saw "Mafia man or criminals making queues to surrender their guns or their AK47 to the police because of strict gun laws, while the honests citiziens, that have the right to defend themselves from criminals, are harassed by laws that, as any evidence is demostrating, didn't bring nor collectively nor individually, any sign to prevent crime" I can't believe my EYES!!! Of course, leftist reacted saying that De Martino wants to transform Italy like "Chicago, New York or Far West..."

Chicago and New York have some of the most restrictive gun laws in the US. Canadian gun laws are more lenient than Chicago's or New York's. Yet Chicago has the highest murder rate in the country. I wonder why that is?

Monument Valley. We had a drink about six months ago at a saloon near the park. Great guy that Duke is, he bought the first round, kept calling me pilgrim, and man when he says duck do it. He cold cocked that bad guy though. Then we had another drink on me this time. If only we had more men like him around nowadays.

What is more amazing is that a conservative minister and a leftist politician in Europe actually differ on civilians owning guns. Most pretty much toe the same line, i.e., the "little people" shouldn't have guns. Rich people, yes, anybody else, no. Of course, wasn't De Martino appointed by Silvio Berlusconi? Berlusconi garners a lot of criticism from all sides in the media on just about everything- this is proof he is thinking "outside the box" and trying to do different, unconventional things, and is therefore doing something right....[:D]

Good to hear about the small outbreaks of sanity across the world. How easy is it for average Italians to acquire guns? Long guns? Pistols?
