    clearly, NYC proves that just becuase a place has strict gun laws, doesn't mean it will have a higher murder rate than a place with looser gun laws.


    Strict gun control laws clearly don't HELP, or Chicago and DC wouldn't be such a mess.

    They just impair honest citizens in defending themselves.

    whats stupid is the atf classifies air guns as weapons and all other guns as firearms,with one major exception.that is blackpowder firearms like mine are not classified as a weapon a gun or firearm under any federal law,so long as the ammunition powder and caps all needed to be loaded seperately,so all cartridge fire blackpowder still counts as a weapon and firearm.

    there are however some states that add restrictions to blackpowder muzzleloaders,but most states allow mail order of them and in some states still legal for felons to possess.

    We figured out long ago that it isn't YOUR guns you're scared of, it is "The People" having guns.

    Firstest, I said that Thunder cannot now say that crime is down in NYC due to gun control. I also listed violent crime. I did not specifically say murder.

    Secondest, You cannot compare raw murder rates without also involving social and environmental data and hope to find realistic comparison.

    We get it Thunder.

    hey man, you know I dig you. You're one of my favorite posters here. I think you have your head and heart in the right direction.

    But, bro to bro, gun discussions are not your forte. Pellet guns. Putting an eye out. I don't think you realize how that is coming across.

    I'm just lookin' out for ya bro 'cause I like ya. You should be asking more questions and giving less advice on this one particular matter. The same goes for me. There is a wealth of knowlege on this thread for anyone who can get past their own pride and be willing to absorb. You ain't gotta like the ideologies.

    We should all approach each other as we would a friend who is welcomed over for a beer and some quality time. We don't all have to agree. But neither do we have to be controversial to the degree of berating. That goes for all of us.

    again, the fact is that NYC is proof that strict gun laws don't make a society less safe.
