    I have realized that of all kinds of insurance, health care insurance is the most marked by controversy because of the discord between the insurance policy company's duty to remain making money and the client's need to have insurance policies. Insurance companies' commission rates on wellbeing plans have become low, therefore some corporations struggle to make a profit. Thanks for the thoughts you reveal through this website.

    I'm sorry for all those innocent people who died by gun violence, but lets be honest: NONE OF THOSE MEASURES THAT OBAMA AND THAT POLICE CHIEF WANTS, WOULD HAD PREVENTED SANDY HOOK.

    Just look at some of the cities with highest gun control laws: Detroit, Chicago and Washington D.C and look at their gun crimes, no... look at their high numbers of crime, period. GUN CONTROL doesn't work, period.

    So the question is, why?

    1. Why do the federal government wants to know what type of gun you have?
    2. What does it intend to do with that information?
    3. How do these new laws keep you safe from gun violence?
    4. HOW do these new laws prevents illegal gun ownership?

    not one pro-gun control people can answer these questions.

    P.S. adam used pistols not "assault weapons". but they are focus on "assault weapons"
