    Gun-related homicides and injuries down as firearm sales soar - Richmond Times-Dispatch: Central Virginia:

    Analysis shows deaths have decreased in Virginia despite a surge in business



    Figures from Virginia’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner show firearm-related homicides declined in four of the seven years from 2005 through 2011 — the latest reporting year available — from 357 killings to 242, for an overall decrease of 32 percent.

    When state population increases are factored in, gun-related homicides fell 37 percent, from 4.72 deaths per 100,000 in 2005 to 2.99 in 2011.................

    Good information, which I'm sure would be borne out by national statistics as well. Problem is, this type of very real information will never gain much national attention, because it doesn't fit in with the media's agenda.

    Honestly all Obama and his band of idiots have accomplished and are likely to accomplish seeing the backlash against his little power play is to make certain there are more firearms in the hands of more people than before he opened his yap. Which is a good thing by the way.
