    My gun!

    Today I Placed my S&W .357 revolver on the table right next to my front door. I left 6 cartridges beside it, then left it alone and went about my business.




    While I was gone, the mailman delivered my mail, the neighbor's son across the street mowed the yard, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few cars stopped at the "stop" sign near the front of my house.




    After about an hour, I checked on the gun. It was quietly sitting there, right where I had left it. It had not moved itself outside. It had not killed anyone. Certainly, even with the Numerous opportunities it had presented to do that. In fact, it had not even loaded itself.




    Well you can imagine my surprise, with all the hype by the Left and the media about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people. Either the media is wrong or I'm in possession of the laziest gun in the world.




    The United States is 3rd in Murders Throughout The World. But if you take away just 5 cities: Chicago, Detroit, Washington DC, St Louis and New Orleans -- the United States is 4th from the bottom, in the ENTIRE World, for Murders.




    These 5 Cities are controlled by Democrats. They also have the toughest gun control laws in the USA. However, it would be absurd to draw any conclusions from this data ... right?




    Well, I'm off to check on my spoons; I hear they're making people fat.

    Actually Detroit has to follow the laws of the State of Michigan which is a shall issue state. Open carry is also legal in Michigan, hence Detroit. Open carry is not legal in Texas which is considered to have some of the most lax gun laws. Recently the Chief Law Enforcement Officer for the City of Detroit has encouraged law abiding citizens to get their concealed carry permits and to carry.

    Detroit is still a liberal crap hole but crime, especially violent crime is dropping. That may be due in large part to the mass exodus of the working class out of Detroit due to loss of jobs and now there is no longer anyone to hold up.

    Yes and NO! Thugs tend to stay where they can make a decent living but places like Detroit, Chicago and many others still have plenty of criminal activity going on in the inner cities and mostly centered around drugs. Most of the working class middle income folks have bailed or got down sized and left for better work. What is left are what we see protesting and looting. Most crime is centered around black on black or other minorities against each other and many are never reported until someone gets dead or seriously injured. Michigan is far from alone in this respect and here in NY the last places you want to go are Newburgh and Poughkeepsie.
