I'M SHOCKED. :what:
Violent crime declines as American gun ownership rises
For the third consecutive year, violent crime has declined in the United States during the same period when gun and ammunition purchases have increased dramatically, something that should not be happening, if one were to believe the gun prohibition lobby...
... Meanwhile, some estimates place the number of concealed carry permits and licenses across the country at more than 6 million. Again, in this kind of environment – if one had been listening to groups like Washington CeaseFire and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence – with all of those guns and all of those armed citizens, neighborhoods should be flooded with blood.
Or try this:
NOTE: OCDO has a part in today's drama...
I'M SHOCKED. :what:
And this whole time Brady would have us believe that we would all wake up to a social blood-bath of gun-toting anarchy due to such an increase in firearm ownership. Brady zero, firearm owners 80+ million
I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

Live Free or Die!
Dave it is good to see a rise in firearm ownership that coincides with a drop in crime rates.
We must acknowledge that there are factors as the armed and unarmed law abiding citizens and law enforcements involvement has contributed to the drop in crime.

Please lets specify...The Brady Campaign...cause,I Am Z Brady...
I wonder since I am a Brady, (but not one of those Brady's) if I could start a not for profit organization. "Brady Campaign to preventthe Brady campaign"
Edited for origanal thought - I wonder how long it will be for the Brady campaign to put claim to the decrease of violence to their efforts.
If you voted for Obama to prove you are not a racist...
what will you do now to prove you are not stupid?

I'm happy to see the drop in crime - and my respect for stand-your-ground households continues to rise.
