Isn't it amazing that the city with the toughest gun laws in the nation now tops the list of the most killed with them. Their answer is getting the guns off the streets, Oh wait they can't have them, and better conflict resolution training, Oh boy, I can see that, hood one points gun at hood two. Now my conflict resolution class says when you point a gun at me I'm supposed to talk to you in the adult to adult fashion.

500 homicides, not gun deaths.

Not amazing to me at all....typical is a more accurate description.

They have created laws/restrictions where there need not be.




Furthermore, I was reading a Crij. book with some statistics in it, which had no bearing on gun rights or mention of it, and it listed the top 10 states in the US with sexual violence/assault crimes and, typically enough, MOST of the firearm restrictive states were towards the top or on the list (which was surprising given the population of some of these states versus Texas, which fell further down on the list.
