    FBI Reports Violent Crime Down 1st Half of 2010

    Funny how, they don't seem to want to admit that bad guys may not committing as many violent crimes because they are worried about getting killed by their intended victims. If that is the case, it's no wonder that the only area that reported homicides actually went up, is in a region with the strictest gun laws.

    Although overall violent crime dropped in all regions of the country, the northeastern United States saw only a minuscule 0.2% overall decline. Meanwhile, violent crime dropped 7.8% in the South, and 7.2% in both the West and Midwest. In the Northeast, reported homicides actually rose by 5.7%. That compares with a dramatic 12% decline in homicide in the South, and drops of 7.1% in the West and 6.3% in the Midwest.

    I read another article about this today in which at various points they stated:

    - Criminologists couldn't explain the atypical decline considering bad economy, loss of jobs, less police, and jail overcrowding resulting in more criminal early release. Seems to me that the precipitous increase in gun sales, gun owners, and concealed carry permits would explain this perfectly when all other economic and other indicators would suggest it should have increased. Since the current Administration fuelled the dramatic increase in gun sales (out of concern for the safety of our 2A rights), I'm sure they'll take credit for the decreased crime. An indadvertant (although positive) result.

    Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.
