    Under the category of you can't make this stuff up, how ironic is it that the states with the strictest gun control laws have the absolute worst numbers of murders per capita? By the FBI's own crime statistics for 2011 the list is as follows:

    1. CA - Blue
    2. New Jersey - Blue
    3. Massachusetts - Blue
    4. New York - Blue
    5. Connecticut - Blue
    6. Hawaii - Blue
    7. Maryland - Blue
    8. Rhode Island
    9. Illinois - Blue - and Home to Obama! Bonus!
    10. Pennsylvania - Blue
    11. Michigan - Blue
    12. North Carolina - Blue - voted for Obama Twice
    13. Colorado - Blue
    14. Oregon - Blue
    15. Washington - Blue

    All the top 15 worst states Blue - and with more gun control than other states. LAMO@ U libtards. You are your own worst enemy. If we convert you all to conservatives the crime rate and gun abuse will go down.
