    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    Interesting, The biggest city in my state (Salt Lake City) ranked 105, I thought it would be higher.

    I think that's a proof that criminals know that the average citizen has the right to keep and bear arms. That's one of the reasons I like Utah, in addition to that great snow you get out there. That reminds me, I gotta get a plane ticket for Sundance since my friend in Park City keeps sending me pics from his cell phone every time it snows now hehe!

    Not too good for my State. St. Louis is #1 and Kansas City (my hometown) is #21.

    It's interesting that while St. Louis is #1, O'Fallon which is right next to St. Louis and still part of the greater St. Louis metroplex is ranked #399.

    And we all wonder why Grady is a walking arsenal. (Well, I don't. I subscribe to what Grady believes.)

    Looks like Illinois and Minnesota doesn't play well with others and didn't participate much.

    Atl is 25? I figured it would be 10 based on assault and theft.

    Wow... I can't believe Oklahoma City is number 50. That's really surprising to me. I was under no impression that we had the lowest rate but I didn't think we'd be that high. And Tulsa is 28? Crazy.

    Howdy!

    It's interesting that the big three didn't make the list (NY, Chicago, and LA) or did I miss them? Saw that Houston did make the top 50.

    Geez! West Virginia did not even make the list. Maybe a pistol in every pocket makes a difference.

    Something seems fishy. I have a hard time believing that Portland, OR has more crime than NYC or Salem (known in OR for its crime rates).

    Methinks some cities may be fudging their numbers when reporting to the FBI.

    edit: is it NYC that doesn't record a crime unless they have a suspect?

    Maybe it has something to do with where the city lines are?

    I'm venturing a guess but I think the stats per capita, not just raw #'s of crime. NYC may have 50,000 crimes but with 8 million people it's crime rate (less than 1%) is better than a city with 5,000 crimes and 100,000 people (5%). You are more likely to get mugged in the smaller city which would put it higher on the list.

    edit: here is the page where the FBI describes the variables that affect the stats: http://www2.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2009/abo...ing_crime.html

    I live near detroit where the former mayor is accused of having a stripper killed (and is currently in prison on other felonies) and the swat team recently killed a 7 year old, one of the patrol guys last year was charged with criminal sexual conduct, and that is just off the top of my head.

    Pretty sad when the elected officials and the protect and serve crowd are part of the problem that gets you on those lists.

    Delaware didn't make the list! We have crime, but some of the cities on the list have more population than the whole State of DE.
