    The Hi Point 9mm is another downscale semiautomatic frequently seized from suspects in the 18-to-24 age range; it has a time-to-crime span of just one year.

    I notice something about these. They mostly are very small, concealable weapons, and can be had for under 300 bucks at a pawn shop. Atleast till the run on guns they were under 300.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    I don't think Time magazine got their poll from my neck of the woods. Most of the firearms used where Im at are those Cheesy what I call "California specials' Lorcin,Davis,Jennings Bryco etc and also unfortunately a great deal more "Glocks" have been seized than ive ever seen before lately. I guess its the gun of the rappers since it rhymes with "Block" and "Rock..

    It's based on BATFE traces, so it's not likely representative of overall use of guns in crime. Many times the source of a gun used in a crime can be discerned without help from the BATFE, and those cases would not be included in these stats.

    They are interesting nonetheless. I read a study about firearms fatality rates in a hospital in New England somewhere... they found that the lowly .25ACP was their most common killer in their particular ER.

    Yep.

    The title of the article is "America's Most Wanted Guns" and not X town/city within America most wanted guns.
    It's an averaging...

    The list is derived from the center's investigations of 88,570 guns recovered from crime scenes in 46 cities in 2000, is being analyzed for ATF's youth gun crime interdiction initiative, which helps local police forces understand and counter gun trafficking to youth in their jurisdictions.
    Not a shocker at all that there is not only no AR but no AK nor even any _rifle_ of any sort on this listing.
    But then antis would simply counter that at the time of focus for this article in '00 the AWB was in full force and so look proof that it was a success!

    I have held a C9 Hi Point at a pawn shop once. I didn't
    buy it. I will say it was an ok size. Not like their .40 or
    .45 which looks like a power drill from Black n Decker
