Unclear on the Concept

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 5:52 pm

CSM sez that Paul Helmke dba Brady Center sez that Pennsylvania has the 10th strictest gun laws in the country. Huh? As a resident of the only southern state that should have made the list (but mysteriously did not) I’d gladly trade our gun laws for their any day of the week.

    Speaking about gun laws, they should be strict. in countries where having guns is prohibited the crime rate is lower.
    .-= Deby @ israel´s last blog ..Shalit debacle- Israeli government hit new lows =-.

    International comparisons don’t tell you much, as there are far too many variables. Some countries have stricter gun laws than we do and less crime, while others have stricter gun laws and much more crime, and others still have less gun control and less crime. I’m not aware of a single country that has less regulation of guns and more crime, but wouldn’t be terribly surprised if such exists somewhere. The one thing you won’t find anywhere in the world is a city, state or country that has lowered its own crime rate, violent or otherwise, by restricting guns.

    As a blogger focusing on Israel, you really ought to know this. You do understand why Palestinian terrorists use suicide bombers rather than mass shooters, don’t you?
