    Clinton, McCain emerge as comeback winners in New Hampshire primary



    WASHINGTON - Democrat Hillary Clinton pulled off an unexpected narrow victory in New Hampshire on Tuesday, dramatically rescuing her bid for the White House in a tense battle with Barack Obama.
    Clinton, who's fighting to become the first woman in the Oval Office, mounted a surprisingly strong showing after bracing for a second defeat following her devastating third-place showing in Iowa.

    Republican John McCain also nabbed a major comeback victory, putting him solidly back in his party's nomination race.
    While Obama, vying to make history as the first black U.S. president, scored big among independents and voters between 18 and 24, Clinton attracted lower-income voters and seniors and did best among voters citing the economy as their top concern.
    But a big factor for Clinton was women voters, who had gone over to Obama in large numbers in Iowa. Nearly half in New Hampshire were once again supporting her, while Obama got only a third.

    I'm not sure what you're saying. You agree the criminals don't care. So we both agree, whether their is a law or not, criminals will carry guns wherever they can.

    However the laws as written prevent law abiding citizens from protecting themselves in many, many places.

    So why would you say we shouldn't allow a law-abiding citizen access to a handgun?

    Are you under the illusion we can actually get rid of all the handguns?? If so, all you're doing is getting rid of the guns from "Joe Good-guy"

    The US is #24 in highest murder rates in the world. This is the safety that carrying guns provides??

    If we are talking about gun control we should stick to gun crime. Of the murders that were committed in the US only half were committed with a handgun (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontl...ore/facts.html)

    Additionally the handgun laws in the US vary state-to-state. There is little to no correlation between gun-control and murder rates. Vermont for example has some of the loosest gun laws in the nation, yet also has one of the lowest murder rates. California has the strictest gun-control laws and is in the top 10 for murders.

    In fact of the 10 states with the best (lowest) murder rates, only Hawaii has what would be considered tough gun control laws. All of the others are pretty "gun-friendly" states.

    I am not saying the carrying a gun prevents murder. I am stating the fallacy of gun control stops it. The more realistic indicator of murder rates is population & economy.

    I'm not saying I have all the answers, just that I'm pretty sure more guns is not it.

    I'm not saying more guns is the answer. Don't misunderstand my position. I'm simply saying don't go through trying to collect the guns from law-abiding citizens until you're sure you've taken them from the crooks first...

    Very true, but people need to remember if they own a gun for protection... make sure you can and will use it if it comes down to it, make sure that they are secure so the criminals cannot steal them, make sure your kids can't get them.....
