DC Mayor admits DC's gun control hasn't worked, though the solution is more national gun control

Here is the interesting problem. In other countries that have adopted national gun control, they blame the fact that we don't have international gun control for their high crime rates.

[Mayor Adrian M.] Fenty (D), speaking at a news conference held by the Mayors Against Illegal Guns coalition, said local laws are not sufficient to fight the use of illegal weapons.

"We have one of the highest homicide rates in the country but at the same time have the strictest [gun] law," Fenty said, joining other urban chief executives at the bipartisan summit on the issue yesterday on Capitol Hill. "Local jurisdictions just can't solve the problem. You need to have the federal government have one standard for dealing with illegal guns.". . . .

Thanks very much to Robert VerBruggen for sending this link to me.

John, what have these Mayors defined as "illegal guns"? Is this another "so-called Assauly Weapon" strategy? These Marxists, Communists, Socialists, Progressives have one thing in common. Disarmament of the citzenry so that there can be no opposition to their control.
