Gun ownership and crime...

MILLER: Gun ownership up, crime down

FBI violent-crime rates show safer nation with more gun owners

Gun-control advocates are noticeably silent when crime rates decline. Their multimillion-dollar lobbying efforts are designed to manufacture mass anxiety that every gun owner is a potential killer. The statistics show otherwise.
Last week, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced that violent crime decreased 4 percent in 2011. The number of murders, rapes, robberies and aggravated assaults all went down, continuing a pattern.
“This is not a one-year anomaly, but a steady decline in the FBI’s violent-crime rates,” said Andrew Arulanandam, spokesman for the National Rifle Association. “It would be disingenuous for anyone to not credit increased self-defense laws to account for this decline.”

Weird how that works, eh?  When the criminals know that their potential victims are quite possibly legally armed, they tend to back off.  Unless they're really, really stoopid.

Well, except in Chicago.  But I'm sure that Rahm has a plan for that.  :) Chicago is a battleground.  And it isn't even the worst.  But it is worse than Afghanistan.  :)  I wonder how obama feels about that?  I wonder who is committing these violent crimes in Chicago?  I wonder what it says about those people?  Who is going to make the excuses for them?  "It's hot outside".  "Minority unemployment is a problem".

Lets be honest with ourselves...  It isn't Whitey running around killing each other off.

And the "Anti's" still regurgitate the crap that they have been spoon fed all these years, though they're not quite as loud as they used to be.  The facts of gun ownership/gun control are not on their side.  Never have been.  They must feel let down once they discover that their handlers have been lying to them since day one.  Too bad they lack the common sense and logic to put 2 and 2 together and figure it out on their own.  Legal gun owners are not criminals.  Never have been.  They do not add to violent crime in any significant way.  Never have.  Never will.

And the Brady Bunch won't comment.  That's almost kinda funny.

Ahhhh well.

Stay safe.
