Guns Up, Crimes Down....

I still am not one to claim causality but the correlations are still there.

FBI Releases 2009 Crime Statistics

According to the figures released today by the FBI, the estimated number of violent crimes in the nation declined in 2009 for the third consecutive year. Property crimes also declined in 2009, marking the seventh straight year that the collective estimates for these offenses dropped below the previous year’s total.

Isn't that just amazing?

Illinois is, of course, still in non-compliance w/ FBI standards so we'll have to wait for the IL UCR to do some number crunching.

And if we listened to our liberal betters, we would know that poverty is what causes crime (not, you know, people being evil or anything). Well, with unemployment flirting with double digits and people having to walk away from their mortgages in record numbers, we should be seeing a tsunami of crime. Any. time. now.

I have been surprised that violent crime and property crime has gone down. My experience has been that when people get desperate, they do desperate things. It would follow that unemployment would tend to make people more desperate.

Kenny, If what you are saying is true, does that mean that people are gradually becoming less evil? I definately don't see that happening.


HAHA!!! WV = heist

I don't know. I was just linking liberal shibboleths. According to the liberals, guns cause murder and poverty causes crime and since murder is a crime blood should be running in the streets.
