    Hillary Clinton: Guns from Bernie Sanders’ Vermont are killing New Yorkers

    “Here’s what I want you to know: Most of the guns that are used in crimes and violence and killings in New York come from out of state,” Mrs. Clinton said at the Port Washington roundtable. “And the state that has the highest per capita number of those guns that end up committing crimes in New York come from Vermont.”

    "[T]he highest per capita number of those guns that end up committing crimes ..." Crap-word salad, meaningless gobble the gook.

    doesn't Vermont also have a lot of firearms manufacturers?

    so kind of a no brainer..

    but still to be fair, I don't see the gun commiting the violence, or the crime, it's the guy holding it.

    and to be even more fair gun violence effects are VERY SMALL number of the total populace, less than 1% actually.

    you'd think we could pour our resources into more life saving ventures, like cancer, or diabetes curing/prevention.

    Clinton misleads with Vermont gun claim; even supporters say it’s inaccurate

    Hillary Clinton’s claim that Vermont is a key culprit in New York gun crime is misleading at best, federal data show, and even some of Clinton’s own supporters Tuesday turned on the former first lady and said her argument doesn’t hold water.

    The benefit/cost ratio of particularly reducing cancer incidence is a loser. Not for the uncountable benefit but for the easily countable cost.

    An incident that made me realize that my daughter Doctor is a professional was a conversation about the cost of reducing breast cancer incidence.

    Her statement is predictable. What do you expect from someone who hates our Constitution and is a progressive, socialist commie? I would tell it to her face. Evil witch.

    I think you misunderstand, the statement was made in general passing due to the fact it kills more people per year.

    Lucky for Wyoming that only 1(one) gun from there was used in a New York murder!! If 2(two) had been used they would have leapfrogged Vermont as the TOP per capita gun murdering state and we would be hearing about how Dick Cheney is a mass murderer.

    Disclaimer: Wyoming has the lowest population of the 50 states. The 1 or 2 figure is entirely made up, but likely accurate by accident. Dick Cheney was the VP under the Evil George Bush, and is half the reason that is wrong with everything in our country today.

    Disclaimer Disclaimer: This is all sarcasm, out right lies, or a feeble attempt to show the foolishness of statistics and per capita calculations used to try and prove a point.

    Too Easy

    “And the state that has the highest per capita number of those guns that end up committing crimes in New York come from Vermont.”
    Headline:

    Hillary admits that New York state does not control its criminals.

    It allows them to infest other states, and then, failing to prevent their return to New York, blames other states.

    This publication considers that Hillary's inability to correctly assign causation disqualifies her from public office.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    VERMONT:

    Relatively easy law abiding access to guns
    Criminals still access guns (same as in New York)

    Result: Low Crime

    NEW YORK:

    Relatively difficult law abiding access to guns
    Criminals still access guns (same as in Vermont)

    Result: High Crime

    Yo Hillary! If lax gun laws in Vermont are responsible for crime in New York, then why aren't those very same lax gun laws causing crime in Vermont?

    They've been saying the same thing about the murders/crime in Chicago and the relationship to the surrounding states' different, and easier gun laws for decades. Mainly Indiana. Different election, plug in a different set of states into the formula, and your good to roll I guess?
