Read something on HotAir about this today. Violent crime is down and gun sales are up. They think the two are related but they didn’t factor in arrests. If incarceration is up, it could also be why crime is down.
Hmmm, around here we call them helpless victim zones.
Ask the people on that island in Norway with the one guy that had a gun.
Or the kids at VA Tech with the one guy with a gun.
Or the Kids at Columbine, with the two guys that had guns.
Wait, you can’t. Because they are DEAD!
Support your local thug. Promote gun free zones.
And to Gavin. Incarceration is up. It was also up when gun sales were down and gun control laws were up and crime was up, see also the 90′s. Every state that got rid of useless gun control laws saw a much faster rate of crime decline that ones with strict gun control laws.
DC and Chicago are great examples og how well gun control works.
DC has a virtual ban, and Chicago has an actual ban (despite 2 SCOTUS rulings) and yet they still lead the nation in crime AND GUN CRIME.
See also Bill Clinton and the useless assault rifle ban.
I’ve carried a Glock 19 concealed everyday for the past 6 years, and have somehow managed not to menace or kill anyone with it. Similarly, I’ve managed to avoid becoming overweight, despite the easy availability of larger than 16oz sodas.
As far as Gavin’s incarceration argument:
Statist douchebaggery is still statist douchebaggery, regardless of what lame, consequentialist rationalizations you can pull out of your ass to cover up people’s irrational fear of inanimate objects.
Typical lefty logic: The “state” will always do a better job protecting life and property than the individual
This presumption is great, because it allows us all to avoid confrontation and remain perpetual children, which is clearly what we all desire in the long run
Guns don’t kill people, crazy ass gun owners kill people.
Close, but no cigar.
Crazy ass gun stealers kill people. And they are usually black, and they kill other blacks. However, the Hispanics are catching up in this important demographic.
And crazy ass hoplophobes create the killing fields.
Chicago doesn’t allow handgun ownership yet their murder rate is up 37% in 2012. Guess the “violence interrupters” aren’t working out.
Yeah, Japan doesn’t allow guns and its murder rate is ….er. Yeah, anyway in Europe they don’t allow guns and compared to the US their murder rate is ….oh. Anyway. Guns yeah!
And Japan is 98.5% Japanese…er.
Yeah, and South Africa has much harsher gun laws than the US but the world’s highest murder rate…oh.
And the places in America with the strictest gun laws have the highest murder rates…der. Boo guns!
No… cuz if one asshole decides to break the rules, everones fucked
