    I am guessing that the City of Dallas is more violent then the suburb cities of Dallas which ever they are. It would be a better comparison to include the metro stats.

    Overall though if I am not mistaken the gun death rate per 100 000 is approx. 5 times lower in Canada then the US

    Why were the pólice searching peoples homes for weapons? I doubt they were out in the open, so searching had to be done.

    Do you agree with the pólice searching your house after a natural disaster?

    As for carrying it in your home, really? When watching tv, or going to get a drink from the fridge you carry your gun?
    Why not? It isn't uncomfortable. Mine actually is so comfortable I just don't take it off when I get home.

    How can you compare murder rates of a country that has a population of a state within in the US? You don't think there wil be a lot of other factors involved?

    OK, so that works out to about 15 per hundred thousand in Dallas, vs. 2 in Calgary. What is it I don't understand about statistics again?

    And what can we conclude from the numbers?

    My guess? Calgary has better public education, less gang violence, and probably less crime overall. Hell. Aren't drugs less of a problem in Canada?

    You don't know much about Canada

    The Vancouver region is heavily Chinese, Indian/Sikh. It has a nickname of Hongcover due to the number of Chinese there.

    Calgary has 140 000 east and south east Asians, probably 100 000 south Asians, 10 000 east Africans

    GTA (Toronto) has 500 000 Tamils, large numbers of Asian, Africans, etc.

    Montreal has a large number of Hatians

    Overall just under 20 % of the population is a visible minority group and the majority of them live in the largest cities.

    If you count Hispanics as being white, the difference between the US and Canada is 8%. Which would be predominately because of the much larger African population.

    Last but not least.

    Who the hell do you have to shoot?
    What on earth does this mean. It is ok to shoot minorities? or people from different ethnic groups

    So, now you're fishing for reasons for the lower murder rate in Canada.

    and just guessing while doing it.

    Can we just dismiss the obvious connection between stricter gun controls and lower murder rates? How do we know that there is no cause and effect relationship there?

    and shouldn't more guns in the hands of law abiding citizens actually lower the murder rate?
