Decades of Gun Bans Have Never Brought Reduced Murder Rates
Chicago, New York and Washington, DC have seen yet another spike in their murder rates for 2008. All of these cities have virtual bans on handgun possession which has been only effective in one area, outlawing self-defense.
Every large city in America has three things in common, fanatical gun control laws, over-abundant violent crime and government run by Liberal politicians.
On the contrary, the further you are from those big cities the safer you are. Nearly every rural area of America has reasonable gun rights, low violent crime rates and government run by Conservative politicians.
Okay all you gun rights hating Liberals tell me the benefits, any benefits of the way gun bans help New York, Chicago and Washington, DC.
