The following was done by Pew Research-a highly respected and non-political organzation. 67% of gun killings happened in the 50 largest urban areas(cities in case you don't know) in the country. Their murder rate is 9.7-more than 2x the national average-they have the toughest gun laws and are run by dems. The liberal blue states like MASS. passed the nation's most severe gun laws in 1998. By 2011 there was an INCREASE in this state of 65 MORE murders with guns. Our country has 101.5 gun ownership per 100 population and a far LOWER rate than many other nations with LOWER ownership .The conclusion is legal gun ownership REDUCES violent criminal acts. The study also found gun violence in the U.S. is DROPPING. The peak was in 1993 and by 2010 had DROPPED 49% By 2011 other violent crimes had DROPPED by 75%. It also shows the blue states(liberal ones) have the HIGHEST gun crimes as well as the other urban areas-nearly all have in common as to being run by dems. In other words, when more law abiding citizens have guns, the crime rate goes down virtually everywhere and it is less when conservative principles are used and enforced. ps Not to be overlooked is the disgraceful murder rate in Chicago-Obama's home town of over 500 per year and some of the toughest gun laws on the books-mostly black on black crime that rarely gets mainstream media reporting.
siri: One point of the study was to show how gun violence has INCREASED in liberal run cities and states and also where there is MORE gun control. Those are the facts-you may not like them-but that doesn't make them any less true. Get over it and get over GW Bush-he has been out of office for five years. Obama is ACCOUNTABLE since he is the pres.
This is nosplit's America:
Kaufman, Texas (CNN) - Kaufman County is on edge. Two prosecutors killed in two months, including the district attorney, gunned down in his home over the weekend.
What's going on? Is someone assassinating prosecutors?
As armed guards surround the Kaufman County Courthouse and police shrouded some public officials in around-the-clock protection, it seems there are as many questions as answers.
Prosecutor gunned down outside Texas courthouse:
District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, were shot to death, nearly two months after one of his assistants died in a brazen daytime shooting outside the north Texas county's courthouse.
Turned out to be "white on white" crime in red state Texas, victims were armed and fearful, and inside their own suburban home with their guns ready to protect them, but no match for a "bad guy with a gun", who killed them anyway inside their own safe and protected home, where nosplit thinks they were "good guys with guns", and safe as can be.
I say they would have been safe in Canada, but not here where NO ONE IS.

Perhaps some border control would help. But no you're a liberal who's distanced from the reality of the problems.. blinded by your ideology.. false ineffective new 'laws' will cure the problem, you think..
nosplit is brainwashed by Wayne Li'lpeter and the gun lobby into thinking that escalation of arms will reduce shootings. Their logic is that if bad guys want to get guns, they will, despite laws to prevent them. By that logic, why have speed limits? People who want to speed, will do so anyways. Why have any laws....?
