Oops!!!

How inconvenient for the liberal control freak douchebags.

If they are too dimwitted to understand the meaning of negative correlation, I’ll explain it for them. The more legally owned guns there are in a community, the LESS violent crime. Meanwhile, in the liberal shithole paradises of Chicago, Philly, Camden, New Orleans, Baltimore…… the strict gun laws have done their job.


… and finds… 

Indeed, “data on fire‐arms ownership by constabulary area in England,” like data from the United States, show “a negative correlation,”10 that is, “where firearms are most dense violent crime rates are lowest, and where guns are least dense violent crime rates are highest.”11 Many different data sets from various kinds of sources are summarized as follows by the leading text:

[T]here is no consistent significant positive association between gun ownership levels and violence rates: across (1) time within the United States, (2) U.S. cities, (3) counties within Illinois, (4) country‐sized areas like England, U.S. states, (5) regions of the United States, (6) nations, or (7) population subgroups . . . .12

Oh darn.

It’s not a very difficult read and, IMHO, well worth your time.

If you care about objectivity, that is.

Now let’s add in another ugly little fact — we’re now talking about Obama intending to initiate violence against a nation which may, if undertaken, in fact be aiding terrorist-affiliated rebels.

It’s time to ask these would-be-Mussolinis an uncomfortable question:

Since we have the facts cited in the above paper — that there is a negative correlation between civilian firearms ownership and crime — exactly what is the real reason these very same politicians want to restrict civilian firearms ownership?

    Yes, Joe, we understand Norton Utilities is blocking TBP – but you can still post comments ????

    Uninstall Norton first. Then if you want protection, buy some good anti-virus software.

    Re: Article above… Since I have five weapons of various calibre and capabilities, does that count for me and four of my neighbors? They didn’t do a per capita count versus violent crime.. Bummer..

    Fascist leaders can never tolerate personal weapon ownership, because it is a challenge to the fascist state. Fascist leaders throughout history have disarmed their pawn subjects, then proceeded to mass murder them.

    We have animals in the streets mass murdering their own kind and any white person they can get their hands on, all with the blessing of the democrats that control these crime infested shitholes. As Obama and the fascists try to retain power in the face of overwhelming opposition, they want the populous to be helpless, dumb, dependent on the government, poor, jobless and victims. Much easier to crush, murder, and subjugate.

    People are finally realizing what a dangerous fascist is Obama

    Antiq Hennis: “Just learning to walk.”

    16-month-old baby shot dead by killer gunning for his father
    Dad was target

    A 16-month-old boy was fatally shot in the head last night by a killer who had been gunning for his dad, a police source said.

    Little Antiq Hennis was struck down in front of his horrified parents, who were pushing him along a Brooklyn street in his stroller.

    He died at Brookdale Hospital at 8:50 p.m. about an hour after the gunman opened fire at Bristol Street and Livonia Avenue in Brownsville.

    “I heard three to four shots,” said a witness, Gina Gamboa, 23. “I saw a man with a stroller screaming, ‘My baby got shot! My baby got shot.’

    “He was going crazy.’

    Police believe the bullet — which struck Antiq in the left side of his skull — had been meant for his father, Anthony Hennis, who has a record of more than 20 arrests in New York and Pennsylvania.

    They include busts for narcotics, weapons possession, assault and car theft, according to the source.

    What a tragedy. I didn’t know before I had a kid that what happened to other kids would start to matter to me.

    BTW, I hate to be a poop flinging monkey, but I couldn’t help noting that Antiq’s daddy was buying him Timberlands. Seriously-Why would you buy designer stuff for a baby who will outgrow them in a week or two? And is that a gold chain on the kid? My kid gets hand-me-downs and Walmart stuff cuz’ they’re too young to know style and they’ll only pee/poop/puke on it, try to eat it, or take it off and wave it around, anyway.
