I can't speak to your irrational fears. What I do know is that the US localities with the strongest gun restrictions also suffer from the highest incidence of gun crime while localities with lax gun restrictions enjoy significantly lower crime in general and lower gun related crime specifically. Complete hogwashhttp://www.census.gov/compendia/statab/2012/tables/12s0308.p......Look no farther than Alaska or Texas, which have high concentrations of guns and loose gun laws. Alaska's violent crime rate is 632 per 100k, Texas's is 508 per 100k. These numbers significantly exceed states like New York (385 per 100k) or Oregon (265 per 100k).See the census web site for more data.
