We Need Guns, Lots of Guns

Here’s something you’ll never see on CBCNBCABCCBSNYTWaPoTorStar…

Gun violence in Va falls, firearms sales up

Baker’s analysis shows the number of gun purchases soared 73 percent in the six-year period, while gun-related violent crimes fell 24 percent.

Baker, who specializes in research methods and criminology theory, said the comparison seems to contradict the premise that more guns lead to more crime in Virginia.

Local Communists remain skeptical…

“It’s quite possible that you can sell a whole lot more guns and crime is still going down,” Goddard said. “But is the crime going down because more people are buying guns, or is the crime going down because the crime is going down?”

Silly Commie…

Gun-rights supporter Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, said whether gun-related violent crimes are committed depends on who possesses the firearms.

“As long as it’s going into the hands of people like you or me, there’s not going to be a problem,” he said. “Criminals are going to continue to get their guns no matter what.”

It’s easy – when your run of the mill “urban” thug thinks your mom may be packin’, he’s more likely to stay in the projects playing video games then risking a face full of .40 cal.  Just sayin’

Correlation = Causation
