    Or possibly their is nothing to take anymore. Or maybe the drug game is dried up over there. Gang violence is usually what spikes the murder statistic.

    Or pure demographic shifts.

    Or the once in vogue broken windows theory. Or crime-stat.

    Perhaps it has more to do with their hemorrhaging of residents?

    From the original Detroit News story cited by Yahoo ...

    Armed citizens with itchy trigger fingers.

    What an excellent combination.

    unarmed citizen becomes one of those "statistics" when dealing with criminals.
    don't like guns? don't buy one, simple as that.

    And? We have stats that crime went down. We have the police chief, speaking out of his ass, saying it's because more people are carrying.

    Nice post.

    A mangled sentence followed by a platitude that doesn't address any of the issues raised in the article.

    :rolleyes:

    That recent shooting reminds me of the incident that happened less than a year ago ...

    so the guy couldn't even hit one of a bunch of people standing on his front porch?......I hope the tree feels better soon :p

    I wonder if the news crew have now armed themselves so they can return fire when shot at by gun toters "defending" themselves? It would certainly make "live from the scene" reports more exciting.

    certainly make it more entertaining. It's rare for a "our live-cam at the scene" report to show anything but a bunch of people standing around. Just imagine if the tv crew was having a shootout while defending themselves from some gun owner!

    ratings for the news report would skyrocket :p

    Correlation and causation are two separate things.

    The only proof that shows is that there is a decline in crime. How about something that links the decline to gun ownership? Statistics tend to help in these discussions. ;)

    Are there more gun owners than the year before? Maybe more guns purchased? Or is a decline because of stricter laws? Stricter punishments? The mass exodus out of the city? Etc....

    did you guys have to pee in my cheerios this morning? can't we for once just go with the gut feeling & statements made by the police chief? how DARE you question things & not take them at face value?
