But I really love this line by Paul Helmke's ghost writer:
Violence in Mexico has increased since Congress allowed the federal assault weapons ban to expire in 2004.
That's a nice correlation. Too bad for them it doesn't hold true for the US. You know , that place where crime has dropped or stayed the same since the AWB expired. One would think that we should have seen a spike as well.
But we haven't.
The same holds true for Illinois and Chicago. No state level laws relaxing restrictions have shown any increase in crime but Chicago, with strict laws like Mexico, has 5x the murder rate across the board as well as higher crime. Again one would think that the rest of the state should see high crime rates w/ all these guns freely available.
But we don't.
And people are realizing that.
So does MAIG, BC and all the rest. And that's why they're terrified.
