    I read this earlier today and was also pleased to see that section. Over restrictive gun laws only affect the law abiding citizen, not the criminal.

    Even an idiot like myself knows that all crime will only continue to rise with the current economy. It has nothing to do with availability of guns. It has to do with availability of money and the stress that lack causes. I'm willing to bet home invasions have gone up also.

    Chicken-Sheit "smash n' grabs" are increasing (for sure)... that being they bust into an unoccupied house (even with a monitored alarm system), grab all they can carry and dash out before the police arrive... we had that happen to us just this summer... alarm went off, five cops showed up within a few minutes, but the meth-heads were gone, along with my kids Nintendos, misc. video games, AND my Aussie wife's heirloom jewelry that was her grandmother's... oh the tears she cried that day (and this morning, BTW)... good thing I have all my firearms in a STOUT gun safe, THAT would have TRUELY SUCKED!! :(


    GET A GUN SAFE!!! :thumbup:

    The Media is the best. I want to know where he got an AK-47.

    Seems to be a factual statement.

    Thank you to all the good LEOs out there. I know you have a hard job.

    Lame. Yeah, I definitely would like to get a proper safe eventually. My gun locker is pretty secure unless someone had enough time and a fire axe.

    Here's another odd ball from that story, they calculated the percentage change wrong, or at the very least phrased their result wrong.

    % Change = ((New - Old)/Old) * 100

    Which using their numbers is actually a 79.9% decrease. If they wanted to use the smaller number they should have said is 'New' is 20.08 (they rounded incorrectly as well) of 'Old'.

    Amazing how the "criminologists" are the most incorrect on the subject.

    Interesting, huh? Honestly that's as data driven an article as I've ever read on MSNBC - especially when it comes to firearms...
