    Not just Georgia, Florida is worse, and before folks get started on Chicago again, you’re more likely to be murdered by a gun in Miami, with lax gun laws. Then there’s eating popcorn in Tampa if you want to challenge fate.

    Guns are gonna make everybody happy. It ain’t love or religion or raising healthy kids makes a man happy. Nope. It’s guns, lots and lots of guns, one or two for every American man woman or child. Happy happy.

    Good guys with guns will save us from bad guys with guns. How many will be inadvertently shot in the process remains to be seen.

    FBI stats have proven over and over, law abiding citizens with guns = less crime.

    Unfortunately, one of the primary sources of guns for criminals, is law abiding citizens with guns.

    It’s not nice using facts with liberals, it totally ruins their childish rants.

    That presupposes that they both pay attention to those inconvenient facts and that they understand them. Neither is particularly likely.

    Crime rate going down in Chicago now with concealed carry legal. Most dangerous cities have the most gun control.

    too bad you don’t have any facts to confirm that.

    Yeah, if you look hard enough you can find someone who agrees with your point of view. Why don’t you take a look at crime rates in cities when concealed carry was not allowed vs when allowed. Put up a sign in your front yard that says you are unarmed, that should make you feel safe!

    FBI stats are not opinions like the guy that wrote the article you want to believe. Way more people are killed by cars than guns. But headlines of shootings everyday is nothing more than an attempt to change an opinion for a political outcome. Carl Marx would say that you are a “useful idiot” I didn’t say that…

    FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO U.S. CRIME TRENDS
    .
    A relationship between firearm possession and firearm homicide rates in local areas has been documented (Cook and Ludwig, 2006; Hemenway, 2004; National Research Council, 2005). The causal direction of this relationship remains in dispute, however, with some researchers maintaining that firearm violence elevates rates of gun ownership, but not the reverse (Kleck, 1997). A recent study using instrumental-variable methods found a mutually reinforcing relationship between firearm ownership and firearm homicide rates for a nationally representative sample of metropolitan and nonmetropolitan counties (Rosenfeld, Baumer, and Messner, 2007; see also
    Cook and Ludwig, 2006). Firearm ownership increased rates of firearm homicide, and they, in turn, increased ownership. Additional research on the relationship between trends in firearm possession and firearm violence in the United States is clearly needed, especially research on the acquisition of firearms by persons at high risk for criminal violence (see National Research Council, 2005).

    tigger: and whites are killing whites almost every day in Miami! and L.A., and dozens of other cities around the country that are worse than Chicago, and Afghanistan is just one of many long-standing cultures that show that when everyone has a gun, it does NOT reduce gun violence.
