Re: Illusions of Safety

I understand why people are surprised, but not why they're so surprised. Sure, Cleveland Park feels safe, but you can take a Metro from there to some of the most dangerous 'hoods in the country. The illusion of safety is premised on assuming criminals will be lazy. Usually they are -- but not always. And when law-abiding citizens are forcefully disarmed, they become easy targets.

Think this'll make DC rethink its handgun ban? Of course not.
