Looks like you anti gun people are wrong again. 

Full story



Gun-related violence has fallen steadily since 2006 in Virginia despite record firearm sales, according to a university professor's analysis.

Virginia Commonwealth University professor Thomas R. Baker compared state crime data from 2006 through 2011 with gun-dealer sales estimates obtained by the Richmond Times-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/YcTt5E).

Baker's analysis shows the number of gun purchases soared 73 percent in the six-year period, while gun-related violent crimes fell 24 percent.

Baker, who specializes in research methods and criminology theory, said the comparison seems to contradict the premise that more guns lead to more crime in Virginia.

What's less restricted about Virginia gun laws?  If you are from out of state it's harder to buy guns.

Since I'm not buying a gun, I couldn't tell  you.  However, I am aware that this practice happens. I'm sure it's easier to buy a gun in VA than it is in NY

WASHINGTON, DC HAS PERHAPS THE TOUGHEST GUN LAWS IN THE NATION.  TEN YEARS AGO THEY HAD 478 HOMICIDES OF WHICH THE VASY MAJORITY WERE HAND-GUN RELATED.  THIS YEAR TO DATE THEY HAS 78.  SO WHAT IS YOUR POINT?

I answered your question.  Then I asked you a question.  Reading is fundamental.

Come on people lets tell this like it is. The homicide and gun violence rate has very little to do with gun sales. It all about street level gang activity and the drug trade. These are young African American and Hispanic men who are killing one another.  Most communities across the country have gotten really aggressive about dealing with gang activity. Communities who do this see a major drop in gun violence and the  homicide rate. It has nothing to do with gun sales. Gang members don't get gun purchase permits.

That's what CIAA-FAN is unable to understand.  He also doesn't understand that gun crimes are down in DC because law abiding citizens can not own handguns.
