Three cities in Connecticut made it in the FBI list of the 25 most dangerous places to live in the solar system. The cities are Hartford, New Haven and Bridgeport. That all should change because Connecticut has always been serious about gun control but since Newtown it is now really really serious about gun control. Some day the state will reach the gun control levels of Chicago which had proclaimed itself a "gun free zone".
Over Fathers-day weekend Chicago reported 7 dead and 30 wounded because a lot of shooters don't know they were in a zone where guns aren't allowed or maybe Chicago isn't very father friendly. This violence should go down because Chicago has a well funded public school system and in time the youths will learn what it means when they're told they shouldn't have guns, it's illegal and shows bad manners. I don't like the term illegal by the way, because it gives a negative connotation. I much prefer "undocumented carriers."
And there are far too many undocumented carriers, so many that the question becomes, what, you want to arrest them all? Please. We need legislation that allows these people to have better knowledge of gun safety. Maybe even supply them with safe bullets. I know, no such thing, but we can also include funding in the legislation for the idea. If you enact a law, they will obey. Also we should supply those who use hollow point bullets to hand them in in exchange for safer bullets. It works with condoms and clean needles so don't laugh.
See, there are solutions all around us and we don't even realize it. We can learn from how we deal with other crisis events and try the same solutions. Connecticut's three big cities have been run by Democrats since we've been taking statistics. This is a party with a great many ideas on how to run cities, in fact these cities wouldn't be great without them. They could elect Republicans but in Connecticut Republicans like to finish off their terms in office from a prison cell.
