 have almost no handgun crime?" >>

    Thank you. As a guy living in one of those suburbs I will use that
ammunition. Did you ever notice the guys that go on a shooting rampage and
killing innocents? I am sure you have; but did you ever notice how few of
them ever receive return fire even by policemen?
    I keep hearing that some of these shooting rampages have been ended by
citizens defending themselves but that these incidents do not make the media.
 Do you have any facts on this?
