The real “inconvenient truth”

October 4th, 2011

Politicians predicted disaster. “More handguns in the District of Columbia will only lead to more handgun violence, generic viagra prescription ” Washington’s Mayor Adrian Fenty warned the day the court made its decision.

Chicago’s Mayor Daley predicted that we would “go back to the Old West, cialis canada viagra you have a gun and I have a gun and we’ll settle it in the streets . . . .”

The New York Times even editorialized this month about the Supreme Court’s “unwise” decision that there is a right for people “to keep guns in the home.”

But Armageddon never happened. Newly released data for Chicago shows that, sick as in Washington, murder and gun crime rates didn’t rise after the bans were eliminated — they plummeted. They have fallen much more than the national crime rate.

Not surprisingly, the national media have been completely silent about this news.

    Of course they ignore it. Just like they ignore SEIU’s Lerner who’s been involved in the wall st. crap for quite a while. Just like they ignore the Wall streeters being arrested by the hundreds, yet the TEA party is dangerous. You could fill volumes with what they ignore or refuse to report.
