Didn’t a Resident Asshat Tell Us This Doesn’t Happen?

Media Spins Red State Shootings for Gun Control, Ignores Blue State Shootings

It is an established fact at this point that the left media only likes to talk about gun control after a shooting in a red or purple state. If James Holmes shoots up a theater in Colorado, which has relatively open gun laws, we get a national conversation about gun control; if Jared Lee Loughner shoots Congresswoman Gabby Giffords in Arizona, we hear ceaselessly about gun control; if Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher murders his girlfriend in Missouri, we hear about gun control.

But when gun murders take place in blue areas, we don’t hear a peep.

The truth is that there is no apparent difference between gun controlled states and non-gun controlled states when it comes to cities with high gun murder rates. For 2006-2007, here are the firearm homicide rates for America’s most dangerous cities, per 100,000 members of the population:

New Orleans, LA — 62.1, low gun control

Detroit, MI – 35.9, heavy gun control

Baltimore, MD – 29.7, heavy gun control

Oakland, CA – 26.6, heavy gun control

Newark, NJ — 25.4, heavy gun control

St. Louis, MO – 24.1, low gun control

Miami, FL – 23.7, low gun control

Richmond, VA – 23.1, low gun control

Philadelphia, PA – 20.0, heavy gun control

Washington, DC – 19.0, heavy gun control

Here’s “The Truth,” friends:

  1. These are great stats! This is the type of info we need to arm ourselves. If the GOP and the Right is not going to go toe-to-toe with more Fox News’, their own version of SNL or dive into the pop culture guns blazing, we the people need info like this so we can challenge our neighbors, co-wokers et al.

    Good post!
