    I've been pouring over the last 20 years of Crime Statistics available from the FBI. You can view a majority of it here http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/ucr/

    But mine goes back to 1991. Now, I have a LOT MORE information to share in the very near future, it just requires an unbelievable amount of number crunching in order to illustrate the point that Gun Control is a Disease. Education is the cure.

    But for now, here's a broad over view that i've put together. These are murders broken down, according to the FBI

    For emphasis on current events, the Assault weapons ban of 1994 expired in Sept of 2004. It's pretty incredible what you see what you do the breakdown.

    Stay tuned to Not A Blog for some verbal ammunition to use at the water cooler in the coming months. With the latest Shikh shooting, **** is about to hit the fan in the war on the 2nd Amendment.

    Edit: I'm not sure why it's shrinking the image...so you can click here for a full sized version

    Interesting how more states are enacting the castle doctrine and ccw the lower the crime rate gets. Still the libs don't get it.

    Thank you,
    Porkchop

    People are becoming more and further aware of the little effects gun control has. If you've noticed, many people have been advocating recently that gun control doesn't seem to work, which is absolutely true.

    If you look closely and see how the media portrays gun violence, it is quite obvious they are enemies of the 2nd Amendment and they are being controlled by anti gun advocates.

    A few more tidbits that are easily backed up (it'll all be in a BIG POST soon to come...im just too eager to wait and share)

    Prescription drugs kill 6200% more Americans than homicidal shootings And according to CDC publishing, 290 people die every day from FDA approved drugs...that's 106,000 deaths per year.

    In order for "mass shootings" to even come close to that number, there would have to be a "Colorado Theater Shooting" every hour of every day for an entire 365 days.

    Yet, our President rallies against firearms, and supports Big Pharma. Could it be because of the $657,660 dollars in contributions to Obama from the big 3 Pharmaceutical company's in the country in 2011 alone?

    It's amazing to me that when most people hear this, their eyes glaze over and they move on to the next episode of Dancing w/ the Stars.

    That's not hard to figure out.

    Liberals think with their heart, not their head. At least that's what many of them have told me. "Make your decisions based on what your heart tells you, not on cold uncaring logic."

    IOW, they're either not very bright or unbelievably naive.!

    Great post. The liberals suffer from Ostrich disease, head under sand so they can not see what is going on around them, A$$ in the air ready for a swift kick.

    It would be nice to see the percentage of crimes committed using firearms by people who acquired their guns illegally and by people who legally acquired them. Without this, it's easy for gun-grabbers to point to that big 10,000+ number and say we need bans. You can torpedo that argument when you show that the overwhelming majority of gun owners who acquired their guns legally DO NOT commit crimes with them.

    That is part of the final report for sure =)

    I don't have all of the information yet...some of this stuff is VERY hard to find from credible sources (I refuse to use a "Blog" as a source unless they quote something reputable and cite it)

    So it's taking longer, but in addition to that i'm covering the % of increase of CCW and Castle Doctrine

    in the end, no matter how in depth we go, though, the gun grabbers will just ignore it. I realize this...but I still wanted to put it together =)

    I'd like to see the comparison between gun crimes in cities that are "gun free" vs gun crime in cities that allow ccw. Chicago, anyone?

    Chicago is a huge focal point of my argument =)

    But by all means, please keep adding the "i'd like to see this ______" because i'd love to add all ideas....the more verbal ammunition we have for this battle....the better!

    Why go "city vs city"?

    Compare the US to Canada and the UK.

    Last time I checked the US had a lower major crime rate per capita.

    There is some relevance to country to country, but there are simply too many other variables in each different culture to accurately argue the point of gun control doesn't work.

    IMHO City to City & State to State works best :cool:

    osamaobama is not the key to gun-control, but rather the House and Senete. If pro-gunners can rid the House and Senete of rinos and anties and gain control then osamaobama would be nothing more then a bobble head.

    i'd like to see the percentage of gun crime per "strict pro-gun control" city/state (new york, california, illinois, etc) versus the rest of the United States, and

    i'd like to see the percentage of overall crime per city/state versus percentage of gun crime per said city/state.

    this is spot on!!! obabwah-wah is a political figure head, puppet that has his strings pulled by congress. congress forms, compiles, passes and ultimately makes the laws it wants..................and they hide, piggyback, and add pork to bills that mean NOTHING to the bills that are being passed, in hopes noone will be the wiser until it is too late.

    So, it'll go more in depth than this, but a general over view, according to the ATF and the Bureau of Justice Statistics:

    93% of firearms that are used in crimes are obtained illegally.

    39.2% of crime guns are purchased on the street
    39.6% of crime guns are purchased from family/friends

    0.7% of crime guns are purchased at a gun show
