    Anti-CCW Cartoon from newspaper

    I was going through some stacks of old stuff and found this clipping that I had cut from the Denver Post in 2003 when Colorado was debating passage of CCW permit legislation:

    Like a broken record this is what you hear in every state that fights to pass a carry law. As you noted, the blood in the streets never happens.

    The good news is that most states that have passes CC are still waiting, of course the states that haven't are watching their crime rates grow........ Will they ever learn?

    It's sad what's happening in Denver, compared to "the rest" of Colorado. Colorado has such a historic, storied history as a state filled with great individuals and leaders that believed in self-reliance and sacrifice. Where have they gone in Denver?

    A very common assumption of leftists. All citizens are either criminals or criminals without a rap sheet.

    Makes me sick.

    Well that one got disproved, like most other similar offerings over time. Be more accurate tho if they'd portrayed a criminal threatening an armed citizen, who could be producing his piece with a grin - ''You were saying?" LOL!

    Good try to get the sheeple's blood pressure up tho. Glad CO saw sense.

    I Love it. But getting a paper to print it unfortunately will be near imposable. If one does, I'll take a subscription.

    This article came out in the Rocky Mountain News today...note the statement in bold toward the bottom:


    Murder lull in the city
    It's been six weeks without a homicide, longest gap since '66

    By Ivan Moreno And Marilyn Robinson, Rocky Mountain News
    March 8, 2006

    It's been almost six weeks since a homicide has been reported to Denver police, marking the longest stretch of calm in the city since 1966.

    According to police, the last homicide victim was a 24-year-old man who was shot in the head in December and died as a result of his wound on Jan. 26.

    Criminal justice experts and law enforcement officials say coming up with reasons for the decline is difficult.

    "There could never be an explanation for the lack of, or the increase, in homicides," Denver police Detective Virginia Quiñones said. "You could go years without this type of criminal activity and then turn around and have a flurry of them due to the fact that it is a crime of emotion."

    Homicides in Denver over the past 10 years have fluctuated, with a high of 94 in 2004 and a low of 34 in 2000. Last year, detectives logged 62 homicides, Quiñones said.

    So far, there have been four homicides in Denver this year. Detectives had about double that caseload this time last year.

    "I wish I had the wisdom to tell you why, but we're extremely happy," Sgt. Jim Kukuris of Denver's homicide unit said about the low homicide figures.

    "It gives (officers) time to get caught up," he said. "If we could keep it up the rest of the year, it would be great for everybody."

    Some other metro-area jurisdictions, including Douglas County, Boulder and Jefferson County, have had no homicides reported so far this year.
    (snip)

    Criminal justice experts on Tuesday provided a variety of theories as to why there have been no homicides reported in Denver for almost a month and a half, even though one professor said trying to find an explanation is "like trying to catch pillow feathers in a typhoon."

    "It's extremely difficult to say why there haven't been any homicides," said Joseph Sandoval, who teaches at the Metropolitan State College of Denver.

    Sandoval said he wonders if perhaps there's been an increase in the number of people arrested for carrying concealed weapons without a permit. Or maybe, he said, there has been an increase in the number of people who have a permit to carry a concealed weapon and that has thwarted homicides.

    Mark Leone, criminal justice teacher at Westwood College, also said there is no clear answer.

    "Homicide is one of the most unpredictable crimes as far as trends go," said Leone, a retired Denver police lieutenant. "And this is because most homicides are committed by someone who knows the victim. It's hard to know what sets people off."

    Leone said factors such as better medical treatment could account for more aggravated assault cases and fewer homicides.

    Increased incarceration of violent criminals could also explain the decline.

    Other than that, the answer might as well be in the clouds.

    "You can say the weather, you can say the economy is getting better, but it could just be that people are getting nicer," Leone said.

    I thought this tied in pretty well with Mike Keefe's hysterical ranting...

    Well - give him marks for optimism I guess!!

    I'll stick with the CCW comment - it is very likely it has at least helped and sure ain't hindered. BG's do for most part have this distinct dislike of being shot back at!

    Rick - I think you are right but cannot be sure - regardless of origin - the phrase has great truth IMO.

    Works for me.
