    "NO GUNS AT ALL IN URBAN AND SUBURBAN AREAS" so I really have no clue wtf you are talking about.  I have never opposed hunting rifles or revolvers for anybody, anywhere, whether in the suburbs, the country, or in a city.  

    I was addressing this diary that expressed well the problem of a statewide ban on carrying a firearm in public.  One neighborhood is not like another.  On the one hand, I see 2nd amendment absolutists arguing that we need to stop focusing on mass shootings because they are statistical anomalies, and we should focus on inner city violence, and then on the other I see 2nd amendment absolutists FREAK OUT over the acknowledgement that the violence in our inner cities is extreme and an incredibly huge problem... and very unlike the violence in other parts of the country.
