As i have always said stick to the truth and the facts because Liberals can't deal with it.
When Citizens are free to carry concealed weapons crime rated drop precipitously and when guns are taken away the crime rate jumps as it did in Australia.
Crime up Down Under
One armed citizen who was trained as I have been could have stopped the Tucson shooter dead in his tracks after the first shot.
The only thing you must be sure to do if you do take out the bad guy is lay you weapon on the ground and make no sudden moves until police arrive so you don't get taken out by another armed citizen.
Obama and his minions want us unarmed and stupid so he can put his Black Theology agenda into play without fear of what is going on in say the Middle East where they are not happy.
Of course most of those riots are promoted by the Islamic Cult leaders who rely on Bovine Scatology to push dumb-asses into a so-called religion that is no more real than Kwanza.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

You'll have a hard time proving prison growth is the reason for any drop. To most, the reasons are unclear.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

Posted this thread last year, it overviews a report from the Cato Institute that examines incarceration rates in comparison to violent crime rates. I don't feel a need to revisit research you haven't done.
