Look at the New England states (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI and VT. There is one A rated House member along with one B rated House member: That's all there are in New England. Entire delegations are F rated; MA, for example.

True enough. But it does bear mentioning that Vermont has the least onerous gun-control laws in the country, and New Hampshire is extremely pro-gun too.

Much of the problem, particularly in New York, is that a concentration of people in a small urban area - New York City - drives what happens to the entire state, even if the rest of the state is radically different in every way from those people in the city.

And this, boys and girls, is why the Electoral College is so critically important. Do you want the people of Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta, New York and a handful of other cities determining what rights the rest of the country is allowed to have?

Voting is not given the importance it should by too many people. Only about a third of eligible voters show up at the polls. Of those who do, many just always select the same party, never split their ballots. Some just vote for the incumbents because they haven't studied any info about the challengers. Some, believe it or not, vote for the "cutest" candidates. Some, always for candidates of a certain race or ethnic background. If Congress really wanted to do something about it, there would be laws requiring all candidates to make their political histories public, including their voting records, not just have them so it takes dilligent effort by the few conscientious people to dig out of archives. And maybe voters should be required to sign a statement at the polls that says they have studied the candidates and are voting based upon knowledge of their records. (I guess the last line could just become a formality with no teeth). As it is now, all the info we get on the candidates is the mud-slinging they do to each other.

From what I see happening in NYC, and Bloomberg's adament resistance to the concept that people have the right to defend their own lives, it appears to me that some organized crime is really in control, and wants little or no power in the people to resist being victimized.

I agree that the gun laws in New York, New Jersey, California and other places I don't frequent, have terrible gun laws. I live in Fl. and am reasonably happy with our gun laws.

That said, the people of the State have the right to govern themselves how they see fit, including writing their own gun laws...... The alternative would be all gun laws set by the Federal government. Who here would rather see that?

I don't support the Feds putting their noses into the carry issues of the individual states; what the Feds give, the Feds can take away. If the Feds get into it, guess who ends up with the most voting power? The biggest states, like California, New York, etc............

Of course, my ancestors fought, and lost, a war over states rights.

I think the South had the right idea in the Civil War, excluding slavery, which was Lincoln's scape goat for the war. State's rights are VERY important. Originally our government was founded solely on state's rights. After the Constitution was made the focus was still on state's rights, just like it should be. Just like different parenting styles, each state has different needs that must be met. If that parenting style works for that child then it makes that child stronger. If each state has its own laws, excluding the Constitutional rights that every state has no matter what, then the nation will be stronger than ever. A powerful national government is VERY dangerous and we have already fought a war against a country with a powerful central government, why do it again?

You know, I love that flyover state song. Even though I don't live in the Midwest, I feel like Georgia is a flyover state. Sorry for going off topic.

Gun control like any disease spreads across state lines. There is no safe region regardless of where you are today. Gun Control started in the South following the Civil War. These laws were used to prohibit freed men from owning firearms. The gun ownership laws were later used to keep everyone under control of the state governments. I recall Alabama laws in the 1960s not good. The Southern gun laws migrated to NYC to keep the Irish and others from owning guns. The point here is regardless of where you are today, it can change. This is a National efforts we are all Brothers fighting a common enemy.
