Bolded the most idiotic part. Any chance for an emotional argument not based on facts. Anti-gun people are ridiculous.

Just one more reason why I have stopped trading for guns. I buy them and I keep them. I will never, ever, ever part with one of mine again, with possible exceptions being gifts to my kids.
Some will always be out there who will tryto take them. They will have varying degrees of success, depending on the political winds.
But they aren't getting ANY of mine. Ever. Period.

that I am told I have to give up my guns and ammunition...I suppose I would give them the ammunition FIRST!

Now wait just one New York Minute! I remember reading a story just a few months back about how these crimes were down, and the only increase was in the more anti areas of the country.

Well, I'm sure the gems known as Chicago, New York City, and Los Angelos do their fair share to drive everyone else's numbers up.

Sounds like more reasons to arm oneself.
The cops sure arent getting the job done. The government isnt doing it.
We as citizens need to try radically different tatics, ones that appeal to educated idiots, the kind that are in public office and tend to spend their entire career there...
We shoud publicly thank them for bringing these statistics to our attention and for giving us the motivation to arm ourselves and and educate everyone we know about the issue to insure our personal safety.

i personally hate it when they do a national average because you get those absolute scum cities that make it look bad for the rest of us.

Jeebus ... whats clear is that the large number of criminals that called New Orleans home got distributed all over the country ... of COURSE crime went up slightly.
MORE GUN CONTROL DOES NOT MEAN LESS CRIME!!!
(yeah, I know, I'm preachin' to the choir here but its just so darn frustrating to hear the same old lies year after year)

Saw the story this morning in the paper, and my first thought was "trouble". The Brady group will be going wild with this!

The real point is that the anti's are elites pacifists. The agenda is not about guns but about robbing people of their right to defend themselves(not the elitist though). Remember almost the entire rest of the would thinks that individual self defence is unjustified period. They won't stop untill the rest of us think the way they do. Lets not let them.

I just had an awesome idea. Since disarming law abiding citizens would lower crime so much, imagine how much less there would be if we also disarmed the police and military. Talk about utopia.

Lies, damn lies and Statistics
Obviously an agenda here. The stats are too general, with a sample of less than 1/20th of one percent.
I would want to see a breakdown by city/state etc, as well as sample size from each area. The fact that this info doesn't appear to be there makes me think that we are seeing places like DC, LA, NYC, Chicago et al spiking the figures. If the evidence was in their favor, they would have published the breakdown.
