Crime Rates in Virginia Plummets Despite Right Wing Tea Baggers Buying More Guns

Alas, the crime rate at the Shackleford household has not seen any change either way since more guns than people were introduced into the environment. Granted, the Shackleford household started with a baseline of zero crime, but come on, I was promised less crime!

Firearms sales rose 16 percent to a record 490,119 guns purchased from licensed gun dealers in 2012, according to sales estimates obtained by the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

During the same period, major crimes committed with firearms dropped 5 percent to 4,378.

1 If every household was required to have a defensive weapon, home invasions, burglaries would really drop. Also the law needs to be changed. If someone just robbed you and is running away you should be able to shoot the bastard. Same as if you catch one leaving your home with your valuables. Where I live we have to drag to crook in the house before calling the cops. Best not to call the cops. We just throw them in the river and if the gators don't get him he ends up in Louisiana with the rest of the crooks.

4 Makes me wonder what a paradise America could be with the leftards and their useful idiot libtards allies (need to remember to call them NeoCommies from now on) culled from the gene pool and their stupid wasteful/damaging works all assigned to the ash-heap of history.

Imagine ....

5 Its Bushes fault. Or Climate change or somesuch. Couldnt possibly be that criminals KNOWING that more people might blow the crimos head off if they attempt to rob the gunowners might be in effect and put them off .
