Oh no! Oh dear! Say it isn't so!
In a recent study (performed by Harvard University and titled "Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murders and Suicide") the authors have concluded that there is "no correlation between gun control and less violent crime".
Well I for one would like to condemn these right wing nuts for reporting the truth based upon facts and condemn the University for allowing their tax funded resources to be used in pursuit of information of this type.
Further, I propose that the US Attorney General investigate whether their are any racial aspects associated with this study, and at a minimum stop the University from publishing its findings by whatever means possible.
I also pray that the MSM spare no resources in condemning this study and its authors for possible illegal activities and tactics that they may have used to conduct this study.
I for one am going to lead a boycott (here in Texas) of Harvard University and let everyone I know that the University may be filled with right wing nuts.
"In your heart you know he is right."
Your question is purpousefully skewed because you picked countries that have very low murder rates per 100,000 per year (the standard by which it is measured). If you search murders per 100,000 by country and look at the world map you will find that the US is about average at 4.1 murders per 100,000 per year. Also the US actually fares very well among countries that have very strict Gun control laws despite the large amount of guns that we US citizens possess. The chart does not list the homicide rate by gun deaths, just all murders. So why don't the countries that have strict gun control laws have lower murder rates than the US? Most likely because they have no means to protect themselves with. And in countries like England it is against the law to defend yourself if you are the victim of a crime.
Let me throw out a little fun fact I just discovered. The US has less Stoning deaths per 100,000 per year than Iran. 0.00 per 100,000 vs who *ucken knows! So we look really good in that category!
Another one I found out is there are more Vodka related deaths in Russia than there are in the US.
Here's a thought I had. The people clamoring for gun control should be the ones that have to knock on our doors to confiscate them. I'm doubting that you'll ever get out of your back bathroom to take on that task!
"no correlation between gun control and less violent crime". That is a liberal view. We right wing tea baggers believe that gun control provides a safe condition for criminal activity including gun violence. Maybe Texas A&M better do a similar study to see if they agree with Harvard.
Yes Frogg .. however the MSM is (pardon the pun) "gun-shy" now, since that previous Fla. case.
We haven't heard a peep out of them since the 'Aussie jogger' was gunned down by one juvenile THUG and his two "juviie thugs in training" .. since they had nothing better to do, claiming they were bored
I'm glad our DOJ finally got our MSM corrected about so much reporting of that "R-thing" ... and I feel I can live without fear now ... (wheew ?)
