Facts? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Facts!


I love when the facts get in the way of a liberal’s ageda!

http://www.latimes.com/news/nation/nationnow/la-na-nn-gun-crimes-pew-report-20130507,0,3022693.story

Gun crime has plunged in the United States since its peak in the middle of the 1990s, including gun killings, assaults, robberies and other crimes, two new studies of government data show.

Yet few Americans are aware of the dramatic drop, and more than half believe gun crime has risen, according to a newly released survey by the Pew Research Center.

In less than two decades, the gun murder rate has been nearly cut in half. Other gun crimes fell even more sharply, paralleling a broader drop in violent crimes committed with or without guns. Violent crime dropped steeply during the 1990s and has fallen less dramatically since the turn of the millennium
The victims of gun killings are overwhelmingly male and disproportionately black, according to Bureau of Justice Statistics and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data.

    I love when these kinds of facts get in the way of my liberal agenda! Crime is down, why would I see anything wrong with that?
    Still, even our lowered murder rate at 3 to 4 times that of Canada and Western Europe is really nothing to brag about…

    Here in my neck of the woods, crime is only rising.
    The police force are some of the biggest criminals, and the citizens are being disarmed – it’s almost impossible to get a new gun licence, and seriously convoluted to renew your existing licence.
    Only a matter of time before people start taking the law in their own hands…

    J, I feel so bad for your part of the world! Barely a peep out of the US government about the stealing of property and the racial attacks directed at whites there. Horrible!
