Newtown CT has a population of 27,000 / 23 murders = a murder for every 1173 people

Chicago IL has a population of 2,700,000 /500 murders = a murder for every 5400 people

Is Newtown CT a more dangerous city than Chicago IL?

According to this it is 4.5x more dangerous than the "warzone" of Chicago with roving bands of murderers and rapists

Thanks! :cool:

That was your own work you posted earlier in this thread?

I figured it was HuffPo because only they think that the NRA is some evil organization.

Most firearms owners dont care about or read any NRA publications. It is mainly just a favorite target of the anti-gun lobby because they know that it is a Constitutional right to bear arms, and they have created this fictional monster to play the 'bogieman' for their readers. (Just the same as the Republicans trying to scare their constituents by saying the word 'Socialism' over and over... it just isnt true.)

If not for the left lashing out at the NRA, they would have to lash out at the Constitution itself, and they know they that would be counter-productive.

That would be an interesting statistic. Does increasing the number of guns in a household make it a more dangerous place.

The only stat I can collect on it so far is I or my family have 0% of dying by a gun I own if I do not own one.

That is pretty amazing math.

You also have 0% of defending your family against an armed intruder if you do not own a gun as well.

We can do better than this.

If you own firearms and have small children. then you need to keep your weapons unloaded, with the ammo behind lock and key (with a few rounds up high on a shelf in the closet for emergencies.

99.9999% of gun owners understand this, so this is a non issue.

As far as the domestic issue... if some dude is angry enough to kill his wife, he will do it anyway. There are a 1001 ways to do that, even without a firearm.

If a gun is the only way you can defend your family I would be pretty worried about my home defense.

I would take my situation 10 out of 10.

Another misnomer - just because someone chooses to not own a gun does not mean they are incapable of defending their home.

In fact I would say that I live less afraid in my home than all the chicken poo gun owners who have a false sense of security because they own a weapon.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
