    In other news, 9 shot, 1 dead in gun free Chicago last night. Seven different shootings

    “As of 6:30 a.m., no one was in custody for any of the shootings. Wentworth Area and Calumet Area detectives are investigating.”

    What was that about reinstating the “AWB” Pres. Obam…Calderone?
    Imagine that, millions of new AR’s & AK’s in America and violent crime drops AGAIN!
    Go lay down by your dish anti-gunners.

    The stats look good until they get picked apart.

    Of the big cities, Honolulu has the lowest violent crime rate, followed by two cities in California. Property crime in the big cities is lowest in NYC, which is not quite 50% lower than El Paso (#5 on the list).

    Picked apart? Is that slang for cherry picked? Look, let’s compare all these big cities where there’s crime and decide which one is the safest 🙂

  5. Matt Groom Says:

    Perhaps property crime rates are lower in places like NYC because the NYPD isn’t properly reporting crime:

    And perhaps the reason Honolulu has such low violent crime is because Milk costs nearly $6 a gallon there, and thus, there aren’t many poor people there.
