More guns equals less crime, it's basic math. Since the early 1990s, crime rates have plummeted while at the same time firearms in the general public have doubled in number. If the liberals and other lefties can equate colder winters with global warming, then they probably won't be able to understand the simplicity of more guns equaling less crime.

With over 500,000 people in the state of Wyoming, how many homicides would there be if your numbers are correct?
18.8 x 5 = 94
Since you have already claimed 600,000 as the population ...
18.8 x 6 = 113

The TOTAL number of homicides in Wyoming INCLUDING ALL types of homicides whether committed with a gun or other method, in ANY one year is less than 50, your numbers do NOT compute no matter where you pulled them out from.

How long you going with your lie maam?

I don't have time to teach you math, shug.

And the population of Wyoming is: 576,412.

I'd tell you how to look it up but it seems that you only go to Topix.

Which by the way cannot be said to be safe from viruses.

Nor to teach you English- the difference between homicides and gun homicides, for example.

Gun Homicide Rate Down 49% Since 1993 Peak; Public Unaware

Pace of Decline Slows in Past Decade

PROVING beyond ALL shadow of doubt, that MORE GUNS = LESS CRIME.

Numbers Don’t Lie: A Fair and Balanced Look at Gun Ownership and Violent Crime in the U.S.

"....Do more guns mean more violent crime?

"When you get down to brass tacks, there is one simple question at the heart of the gun control debate: Does more guns mean more gun crime? Here’s what the statistics say:

"While there is no national database monitoring gun ownership in the United States, statistics from the FBI’s Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) show that the number of background checks for legal guns is at a 14-year high. The NICS has been tracking the number of background checks on legal guns since late 1998.

"So, what exactly does this mean?

"While there’s not necessarily a 1:1 correlation between a gun background check and gun sale, a strong relationship exists between a gun background check and a gun sale, FBI spokesman Steven Fischer told Reuters.

"The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives keeps track of data for guns under the National Firearms Act – which regulates and taxes many of the deadliest weapons. That data shows a record-high 1.1 million regulated firearms were processed in 2012.

"Moreover, a 2011 Gallup survey shows that gun ownership in America is increasing. According to the results, 47 percent of Americans report that they have a gun in their home or elsewhere on their property.” This marks the highest percentage of gun ownership recorded by Gallup since 1993.

"In 1992, the homicide rate was 9.3 per 100,000 people. By 2000, the murder rate had declined to 5.6 per 100,000 people, and, by 2011, shrunken to 4.7 per 100,000 people...."

PS: at the bottom of these tables are often listed the source for the stats- not so much in your case. Most of the firearm homicide statistics- ones that are valid- come from the FBI (or DoJ) or the CDC.

You wouldn't know an actual fact if it came up and slapped you in the face. California has more gun owners than ANY other state. It also has some of the most stringent unconstitutional 'gun control' laws. As well as the highest number of homicide victims.
