    Alaska, Texas, and Arizona all have violent crime rates and murder rates that are higher than New York State's violent crime rate and murder rate. Thus, if there is a correlation between gun control laws and crime, then that proves that stricter gun laws result in lower crime rates. Perhaps Alaska, Texas, and Arizona need to adopt their own SAFE ACTS.

    When you can't respond to the facts, respond by disparaging the fact giver. That's a good sign of intellectual capacity.

    If New York didn't LIE about its rate, they wouldn't.

    Of course they most likely left out the drive by shootings and the "work place" violence of the study. Also Alaska's population is so small that one murder and ratio could be larger than NYC.

    The real test will be when Illinois finally starts issuing their CCL's. Then if the murder rate goes down then we can tell Harvard that they need to give their report to Charmin so it can be properly used!!!!

    Of course the Harvard study wouldn't be slightly slanted.

    The study is from 2007 and it's being discussed in another thread.

    And your claim was debunked in the other thread.

    Why do people, especially 2nd Amendment advocates, try to equate gun ownership with crime statistics? The 2A is not about crime!!

    The 2A is about the right of the American citizen to be well-regulated (i.e. well-armed) in order to protect their state from attack, especially from the Federal government.

    To make it a crime thing, at some point, there will be some crime statistic that doesn't go in our favor and the liberal MSM will be all over it like stink on scheisse. You think the battle over gun control (i.e. people control) is strong now... it'll be ten times worse when this happens.
