A sheriff who released a radio ad urging Milwaukee-area residents to learn to handle firearms so they can defend themselves while waiting for police said Friday that law enforcement cutbacks have changed the way police can respond to crime.
In the 30-second commercial, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. says personal safety is no longer a spectator sport.
"I need you in the game," he says.
"With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option," he adds. "You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back. ... Consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there."
New Orleans 53--Detroit 53--Chicago 19.4--Houston 11.8--Milwaukee 15 So if your in a big city strap it on, your gonna need it. Be the man with the "Big Iron on his hip". Every dead criminal may save millions at $50,000 a year. 63 Billion a year spent on incarceration. Now add in the extras.

ALL the countries above United States of America have 100% gun bans.
Oh you forgot to mention the rest of the report: Main reason of the violence in the US is the gap between the rich and the poor (according your report). Second reason is heavy drug dealing from South America to the organized crime in the States, smuggling of weapons and the incredible amount of available firearms for everone. And what about violence on TV?
Now compare: Germany 0,8; France 1,4; Great Britain 1,2; Austria 0,5; Swiss 0,7; Candada 1,6; China 1,1
When it comes down to violence the USA are playing in the same superleague as Jemen and Belarus. I´m sorry, but that´s not an opinion, but a fact.
What BS site did you get your bogus statistics from? You do know that it's B.S., don't you? The US has the highest incarceration rate, and one of the largest murder rates, particularly with guns, in the world, by huge amounts, compared to everyone else. I'm sure you got your stats from a bogus pro gun web site.
Re: "ALL the countries above America have 100% gun bans"
Pathetic try, suretown. The whole list would show the US is on this list, yes, doing better than the 100 countries you show but doing a lot worse than 104 countries you don't show. All the Western industrialized nations are doing a lot better than the US while many of the countries doing worse than the US have little to no government. Further, your ridiculous comment above is taken apart below:
