    the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. What part of that confuses people?

    Here in the Philippines you have to have: 1. A License to Own and Possess a Firearm (LTOPF) before you can buy a gun (valid for 2 yrs); 2. A Permit to Carry Firearm Outside of Residence (PTCFOR) for you to legally carry your gun outside of your residence (valid for 1 year); 3. Certificate of Registration of your firearm (valid for four years). 3. Sport Shooter's License if you want to have up to 500 rounds. To get all of those licenses and permits, you've got to have a police clearance, clearance from the National Bureau of Investigation, Court Clearance, and pass a drug test and a psychological exam. GUESS WHAT? WE STILL HAVE ONE OF THE HIGHEST GUN-RELATED CRIMES IN THE WORLD! WE HAVE AT LEAST 4 ARMED REBEL GROUPS, NUMEROUS GANGS AND A HUGE BLACK MARKET FOR GUNS! The point is simple, stricter laws don't make criminals more obedient.

    How about a map of states with the most strict gun control laws and the most violent states and cities overlaid on it too?

    Here in the Philippines in order for a citizen to buy a legal firearm he/she must obtain LTOPF (licence renewed every 2yrs) and they must register thier firearms (renewed every 4yrs). Our idiotic politicians said that our strict gun regulation will greatly lessen crimes. Funny thing is 99.9% of gun related crimes involves illegal firearms.

    Courage is standing up for the constitution when your peers want to tread all over it. All gun laws are unconstitutional. Every politician that supports gun control should be tried for treason.

    Did a research (I’m curious) on top US states in terms of high crime and the results will show this list (in that order): District of Columbia, Alaska, New Mexico, Tennessee, Louisiana, Nevada, Arkansas, Missouri, Alabama y Arizona (and it continues). All these states have very controlling and restrictive guns controls but all also have the highest crime rates. Texas and FL are 17 and 21 respectively, but very much lower that these states requiring extensive background checks and other steps before owning a gun. Here are the links used on the research: https://www.statista.com/statistics/200445/reported-violent-crime-rate-in-the-us-states/ https://lawcenter.giffords.org/search-gun-law-by-state/
