So despite everybody buying guns and cleaning out ammo counters, and pushing certain guns into the stratosphere in price, it seems that nationally violent crime went down. Dunno why criminals might not prey on people who are armed.
Oddly enough Mass did NOT join those stats.
The number of murders in Massachusetts increased by 3 percent between 2008 and 2009 with 172 murders reported last year, while the number of murders across the country went down by 7.3 percent to 15,241.
While the overall number of violent crimes declined across the country for a third straight year by 5.3 percent from 2008 to 2009, Massachusetts saw an overall increase in violent crimes by 0.8 percent – 99.6 percent of which occurred in metropolitan areas.
(FYI Metropolitan areas have the strictest gun control in the state)
Move on and bring up some real things that can be done to reduce gun injuries and deaths before they happen!
She does kind of look like a fool….
