    Gun violence in Va. falls, firearm sales up

    A study on gun sales in correlation to gun violence over a 6 year period in Virginia. More guns equals less crime! Take notes Illinois!

    It's better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it...

    The same thing is happening even in DC http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...tterns-emerge/ and http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...up-crime-down/ . Not so amazingly, crime ("gun crime" especially) is up just across the street in Maryland's southern counties, as it is in Chicago.

    It is amazing how reportologists and editorialologists seem to find these statistics "amazing" and "unusual" and "unprecedented" every time the FBI comes out with its annual report that shows that crime (especially violent crime) goes down when more folks have guns and more folks are allowed to lawfully carry guns.

    stay safe.

    There, I fixed the name of your thread.

    There is no such thing as gun violence or gun crime. Firearms are inanimate objects and are therefore incapable of any type of violence or crime. Such words are the constructs of liberal idiots.



    Please watch your language on this board. Such bad language will not be tolerated.
    I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.
