    Looks like you got what you wanted. He shot himself in the head. The hostages are unharmed.

    Don't you just love the way Liberals make up phony statistics and other lies, and half the time they seem to believe them.

    Remove guns crime goes up, fact of life. Crime up Down Under
    Since Australia banned private ownership of most guns in 1996, crime has risen dramatically on that continent, prompting critics of U.S. gun control efforts to issue new warnings of what life in America could be like if Congress ever bans firearms.

    •Countrywide, homicides are up 3.2 percent;
    •Assaults are up 8.6 percent;
    •Amazingly, armed robberies have climbed nearly 45 percent;
    In the Australian state of Victoria, gun homicides have climbed 300 percent;
    •In the 25 years before the gun bans, crime in Australia had been dropping steadily;
    •There has been a reported "dramatic increase" in home burglaries and assaults on the elderly.

    Make guns more plentiful crime goes down.

    States with right-to-carry laws have lower overall violent crime rates, compared to states without right-to-carry laws. In states whose laws respect the citizen\'s right-to-carry guns for self defense the total violent crime is 13% lower, homicide is 3% lower, robbery is 26% lower and aggravated assault is 7% lower.

    I hate how these pussies always kill themselves to avoid the consequences of their horrific deeds. What a piece of sh!t.

    My theory on why Conceal and Carry works on getting the violent crime rate down: Would you be as apt to hold somebody up and rob them if you didn't know whether or not they were packing?

    NYC has a lower robbery rate than many cities that have much looser conceal & carry laws.
