So it's assualt weapons that are the problem, huh?
 
I stole this from another board.


Its amazing when you actually look at the stats.....

http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/crime/blog/bal-demographics-of-2012-baltimore-homicides-20121231,0,4137229.story



Each year, the Baltimore Police homicide section compiles statistics on city killings. Here's how some of the data break down:

Murders: 217
Clearance rate (cases closed by arrest or administratively): 47.4 percent
Victims injured in prior years who died this year: 7
Cases from prior years closed this year (which counts toward this year's clearance rate, per FBI guidelines): 28

Cause:
Arson: 1
Blunt force: 7 (3.6%)
Handgun: 181 (83.4%)
Knife/sharp object: 20 (9.2%)
Shotgun/rifle: 2
Strangle/suffocation: 2
Vehicle: 1
Other: 3

Gender:
Male: 196 (90.3%)
Female: 21 (9.7%)

Race:
Asian: 1
Black: 204 (94.4%)
Hispanic: 1
White: 10 (4.6%)

Age groups:
Juvenile: 11 (5%)
Adult: 206 (95%)

35 and over: 72 (33.2%)
25-34: 68 (31.3%)
24 and under: 77 (35.5%)

Motives:
Argument: 14
Arson: 1
Child abuse: 6
Dispute over money: 2
Domestic: 3
Drugs: 3
Neighborhood (dispute?): 1
Retaliation: 3
Robbery: 10
Other: 10
Unknown: 163

Central: 15
Southeastern: 11
Eastern: 36
Northeastern: 27
Northern: 24
Northwestern: 28
Western: 30
Southwestern: 32
Southern: 14


(Known) suspects with criminal records: 79.1 percent
Suspects with drug arrests: 61.6 percent
Suspects on parole and probation at time of killing: 23.3 percent
Suspects arrested for prior gun crimes: 45.3 percent


Victims with criminal records: 82.3 percent
Victims with drug arrests: 68.4 percent
Victims on parole and probation at time of death: 24.2 percent
Victims arrested for prior gun crimes: 37.7 percent


So clearly we have an assault weapon problem. I suspect every other major city statistics are similar, and the country's as well.

Did they say how many of the murderers were cat owners? Maybe it's contagious?

They did, but without the numbers of the victims that owned cats, I thought that it wouldn't be a fair comparison.

Rifles in general are not a statistically substantial weapon of choice nationwide. That's just one of the reasons that an "assault weapons" ban is such a stupid idea.

Other is the 4th biggest killer on that list. BAN OTHER!

I'll bet a lot of those people were drunk. We could ban booze and see if that works.

I read on another thread talking about the DF Bill and there was a blurb about the reasoning for the bill and it mentioned there have been 350 deaths by so called "Assault Weapons" since the ban expired. Which has been what 8 years? So thats roughly 44 a year.

Such an evil Weapon!:rolleyes:

If liberal politicians were serious about protecting the populace this would make more sense than an "Assault Weapon" ban. Not that I am advocating an alcohol ban. Just pointing out the ulterior motive of the liberal elite.

Try bombing a few villages with Predator drones first. Then you'll be a shoe-in!

The safest city in America (Chicago, Ill) claims the life of a 15 year old girl that performed at Obama's inaguration. Thank goodness for that strict gun control.

CHICAGO - A 15-year-old majorette who performed at some of President Barack Obama's recent inauguration festivities has been shot to death in Chicago.

Police say Hadiya Pendleton was shot in the back Tuesday in a South Side park and died at a city hospital.

Authorities say Hadiya was one of about 12 teenagers sheltering from heavy rain under a canopy when a man jumped a fence, ran toward the group and opened fire. The man fled the scene in a vehicle. No arrests have been made.

Police do not believe Hadiya was the intended target of the shooting. A teenage boy was shot in the leg. Police did not release his name.

Hadiya belonged to the King College Prep High School band, which performed at several inaugural events in Washington, D.C.

Nobody worth noting will bring up that guns are illegal in Chicago.

“We are awash in guns,” Durbin said, noting that six times as many guns as confiscated in Chicago as in New York each year. We have guns everywhere and some believe the solution to this is more guns. I disagree.”

Yeah, those strict gun laws in Chicago did so much good, heh?

A girl who performed at Obama's inauguration was killed by a stray bullet from an illegal handgun in Chicago. But nobody will talk about this, b/c if you ban guns the bad guys are supposed to not have them.
