More On Gun Control

Today's New York Times had a sobering report on gun violence in Philadelphia. Especially disturbing is the assessment that gun control laws in Pennsylvania are thwarted by a large rural population . According to the story "Pennsylvania’s cities are forbidden by state law from making their own gun laws, and so must conform to the political will of a largely rural state that, according to the National Rifle Association, has around a quarter of a million gun owners". Why does one feel comfortable out in the "boondocks" with his gun arsenal while his urban brothers decimate themselves? I still question the assertion of the NRA and some politicos that gun control is an infringement of the Constitution.
