    I read recently that if you exclude California, Chicago, Washington DC, and Detroit, the average violent crime rate in the US is as low as the western European countries usually touted as examples of successful gun control.
     
    Or as Alan Korwin shows, Demographics tell the entire story.

    Great poster.  Too bad any lib that I would send this to would just how easy it is to create a poster.  Without the source data this is useless to my evangelical efforts even though it rings true to me.  
     
    Anybody know where to get current corroborating data?  I am sure that Book posted this for this very reason considering her caveat of “if this is true”

    MacG, You can start with this Breitbart article that links to a new Harvard study.

    Wikipedia is a source. When I put together 170 countries with gun ownership and murder rate, I got a correlation coefficient of -0.228, which my rusty knowledge of statistics would say that there is a weak but negative correlation between murder rate and gun ownership. Can someone more familiar with statistics confirm or correct my conclusion about “weak correlation.”? Definitely not the more guns the more murder.

    What makes America violent and mean with guns are Hollywood, Democrats, and the Leftist alliance.
     
    The solution, they the foreign socialists tell us, is that we need to adopt Australia and European health and gun control, as if that would control our people as well as they control theirs.

    Jose, I have read that if you factor out blacks, illegal or non citizen Mexicans, the USA death rate from guns is lower than any Scandinavian country.

    Gun control may work, if applied to Democrats, Black Panthers, Eric Holder, the ATF, and the FBI.
     
    But it’s not really about gun control, is it.
