    Default crime

    Not sure if this will be allowed here, but in case there are those that havent heard yet i just heard on the news that the crime rate is at its lowest point since 1960!
    all crime right across the board!
    all the people who were slobbering about how crime would soar if we let CC get passed or god forbid repeal the assault weapons ban are starting to look like global warming scientists!

    Yukon- There are some very interesting studies out there, many routinely mentioned in the NRA magazines. States that cracked down on gun ownership had crime rates go up, states that cracked down on criminals and had more liberal gun laws had crime rates go down. Hmmm.

    Florida eased up on CC laws and open carry laws in the 80's crime fell

    Virginia came out with mandatory sentencing for crimes commited while in possesion of a firearm, crime fell.

    California, well, we all know about them, what ever they do crime goes up.

    Look at the crime rates in countries that have severly restricted guns, crime goes up.

    Hmm

    Default Liberals/ progressive / antis

    The liberals / progressives / antis do indeed play on emotions - "I voted to change things because the status quo is unacceptable." - while the conservatives / progunners work off facts. Seems like it has always been that way.

    Glenn Beck covers the way things work in one of his books.

    Oops I'm sorry, I forgot. Facts and feelings mix like water and oil.

    Same thing happened from the last depression with the crime rate and Hollywood did all they could to play up crime. I think the real reason this happens is because most folks have enough trouble as it is and don't need any more misery in their lives.
