    Hopefully it will pass and help bring down the highest crime rate in the US.

    Last time I checked, Los Angelos, Chicago, The District of Columbia, NYC, and the entire state of New Jersey, were not located in Alaska.

    When was the last time you checked? And where did you do your checking? 'Cause it was horribly wrong. If I were you I'd get another reference source, one that doesn't have "paid for by [whoever]" at the bottom of the page.

    Ignorance is bliss so I apologize for disrupting it for you:


    ALASKA-Violent Crime Rate per 100,000 inhabitants - 633.0
    CALIFORNIA-Violent Crime Rate per 100,000 inhabitants-472.0
    NEW YORK-Violent Crime Rate per 100,000 inhabitants - 384.7
    NEW JERSEY-Violent Crime Rate per 100,000 inhabitants - 311.5
