As I read the Jan. 20 article, "Rallies attract gun supporters," I became intrigued about the name of Eric Reed's new group, "More Gun Control [equals] More Crime." I'm anxious to see Reed's research that correlates that a ban on "assault weapons" and magazines exceeding 10 rounds, that requiring background checks on all gun purchases, that an interstate database sharing gun ownership information, that more restrictions to keep guns out of the hands of those with certain mental issues and that keeping the NRA from banning medical research on the relationship of gun ownership and the potential for gun violence will result in more crime.

I would find that to be some very interesting reading.
