Hey! Hey! Hey!

Theres an old voice in my head thats holding me back..
Well tell her that I miss our little talks....
Soon it will all be over and buried with our past....
We used to play outside when we were young and full of life and full of love..........
Some days I feel like Im wrong when I am right...
Your mind is playing tricks on you my dear....

orward this to NY governor Cuomo:

This article basically confirms what we all knew.

More Guns Equal Less Violent Crime
by Professor John R. Lott, Jr.
University of Chicago Law School
1111 East 60th Street, Chicago IL 60637

For the Democratic Party the solution to violent crime is clear - more regulation of guns. What is their net effect? Are more lives lost or saved? Do they deter crime or encourage it? I recently completed a study of one type of gun control law-laws on concealed handguns, also known as "shall-issue" laws. Thirty-one states give their citizens the right to carry concealed handguns if they do not have a criminal record or a history of significant mental illness.The FBI's crime statistics for all 3,054 American counties from 1977 to 1992. Our findings are dramatic. Our most conservative estimates show that by adopting shall-issue laws, states reduced murders by 8.5%, rapes by 5%, aggravated assaults by 7% and robbery by 3%. If those states that did not permit concealed handguns in 1992 had permitted them back then, citizens might have been spared approximately 1,570 murders, 4,177 rapes, 60,000 aggravated assaults and 12,000 robberies.
The benefit of concealed handguns are not limited to just those who carry them or use them in self-defense. The very fact that these weapons are concealed keeps criminals uncertain as to whether a potential victim will be able to defend himself with lethal force. The possibility that anyone might be carrying a gun makes attacking everyone less attractive; unarmed citizens in effect "free-ride" on their pistol packing fellows.
Our study also provided some surprising information. While support for strict gun-control laws usually has been strongest in large cities, where crime rates are highest, that's precisely where right-to-carry laws have produced the largest drops in violent crimes. For example, in counties with populations of more than 200,000 people, concealed handgun laws produced an average drop in murder rates of more than 13%. The half of the counties with the highest rape rates saw that crime drop by more than 7%.
Concealed handguns also appear to help women more than men. Murder rates decline when either sex carries more guns, but the effect is especially pronounced when women are considered separately. An additional woman carrying a concealed handgun reduces the murder rate for women by about three to four times more than an additional armed man reduces the murder rate for men. Allowing a woman to defend herself with a concealed handgun makes a larger difference in her ability to defend herself. Guns are the great equalizer between the weak and the vicious. Our study is the first to provide direct empirical evidence of the Brady Law's effect on crime rates and we found just the opposite result: The law's implementation is associated with more aggravated assaults and rapes. Mrs. Brady's exaggerated estimates of the number of felons denied access to guns are a poor measure of the law's impact on crime rates.
We also collected data on whether owners of concealed handguns are more likely to use them in committing violent crimes. The rarity of these incidents is reflected in Florida's statistics: More than 300,000 concealed- handgun licenses were issued between October 1, 1987 and December 31, 1945, but only five violent crimes involving permitted pistols were committed in this period. And none of these resulted in fatalities. That's of 1% misuse rate for permitted pistols in an eight year period or LESS than 1/1000 of 1% misuse rate per year.

And what about accidental deaths? The number of accidental handgun deaths each year is fewer than 200. Our estimates imply that if the states without "shall issue" laws were to adopt them, the increase in accidental handgun deaths would be at most nine more deaths per year. This is small indeed when compared to the at least 1,570 murders that would be avoided.

The Native Americans didn't have deportation laws and still don't. The Federal government in DC is the ruling body, so get over it. Go back to school and lurn sum inglish.

I try to never go to walmart. The diversity is sickening. I only go there when i NEED A NEW WATCH BATTERY, they replace it for free.

Whites should all go to rural small towns. Leave cities to competing minorities, get away from them.

Globalists want to usher all into cities, to control them. Let darkies be controlled. I'm mnoving to the country.

Indians are not native to America. They immigrated from Asia, killing the true natives of America ... the Vikings.
Natives can't tell me anything, except "Shhh. don't tell them we killed the first people and lied about being here first".
Natives are liars and they do not walk on water.

Well, that's funny. The Indians kicked all black Indias off the reservations. Isn't that a form of deportation?

just because I tell the truth and you don't like it, does not mean I need to go to school.

Maybe it's retards like you who need school, since you deny truth?
