2% of U.S. Counties Had 51% Of the Murders!

Recommended Posts

And 54% had ZERO murders! Those are two results of a new report released yesterday from John Lott's Crime Prevention Research Center.

 

Take a good look at the map in close up in a separate tab. You can clearly see NJ counties. Their classifications will most likely not surprise you. Up here in Sussex County there's not much happening. But I know for a fact we have plenty of firearms.

 

If this map doesn't convince someone that murder is a people problem, not a gun problem, nothing will.

Nothing will.  They'll give all these animals a pass by blaming the tool.

Rant on,

 

One of the greatest marketing ploys ever pulled off on a population/culture/race has to be the democrats continued enslavement of African-Americans. There was a little skirmish fought back in the 19th century by northern REPUBLICANS against southern DEMOCRATS that were perpetuating the crime against humanity that was slavery. To be fair, The Union wanted workers for the nascent industrialization of the big cities of the north while the entrenched agriculture economy based in human trafficking of the south wanted to maintain the status quo.

 

Nonetheless, in a brilliant shell game, the enslavers convinced the formerly enslaved that democrats were their champions. Against all common sense an entire demographic bought this "fake news" and their liberators were cast as their oppressors.

 

Fast forward to today. Every dead or dying community in the United States has been under Democratic rule for at least 50 years. The constituents of these communities continue to be enslaved by the ones that institutionalized slavery 300 years ago. This demographic has traded independence and self reliance for their votes every November. Their taskmasters reward those votes by perpetuating the modern day chains of entitlements, welfare and other institutionalized forms of dependence. The plan is the same as it was 300 years ago; To gain wealth, power and self-perpetuity on the back of those you enslave.

 

Whether you shackle and chain people or trap them in dangerous and oppressed ghettos, you doom generations of a demographic/culture/race to dependence that they repay with votes.

 

It's so plain to see that it's pathetic. Those that have gainful employment and create wealth, actually fund their own demise through taxes they pay. Taxes that those in power use to buy votes from the constituents conditioned to viewthe wealth-creators as the enemy.

 

It takes "taxation without representation" to a whole new level.

 

As they say, our forefathers would be shooting by now.

I would be interested to see these stats as a percentage of population. It's very difficult to have a bunch of murders in a county of ten people.

I'm not saying that gun ownership does not correlate with murders or lack thereof, but 10 murders could be an epidemic or a really low rate depending on the population.

 

they are also all Dem areas if you notice

Almost. Maricopa county in Arizona is the one that stands out, but they've got other problems that most of the other areas don't really have.

Almost. Maricopa county in Arizona is the one that stands out, but they've got other problems that most of the other areas don't really have.

Interestingly, most, if not all, other "studies" use murder "rates" per 100,000 residents. So you can find those numbers most anywhere.

 

The reason these "absolute" numbers are relevant is because it's looking at clusters of murders. The rankings by absolute number is, IMHO, a more accurate picture of the violence extant in these cities.

 

Demographers pass off these "rates" as a proxy for "risk". I view these rates as nothing more than a density vs. crime study. Not risk. For example, since the time when media outlets tallied war-related casualties, they didn't quote them per x active soldiers. They just quoted absolute numbers. The theory is that using rates minimizes human lives. I agree with that. Add the particularly Democratic Party penchant for distorting census numbers, I have a tough time trusting the veracity of murder "rates". Additionally, your intuitive approach to say 10 murders could be viewed differently in a town of 10,000 vs a city of 8 million is reasonable. But I expand that idea with "controllability" factor. If you have a person fly off the handle and kills 2 people in a small town, you can imagine that it was an isolated event and chances are slim that it would be repeated any time soon. Yet when you look at 762 murders in Chicago it seems an insurmountable challenge. Halving the numbers of murders, which would be fantastical, would still leave almost 400 people slaughtered. Just as bad.

 

Numbers don't even scratch the surface of telling the story in these war-zones.

 

As for Maricopa county, as you mentioned, there are a major unique issues in that part of the country. From the political atmosphere to the crime culture, this area of the country is a challenge for everyone.

    • Please read this entire post, there is a lot of information, please read read all of it before making a decision. I am selling ALL of my reloading equipment, everything set up for 9mm, 45 ACP, 223, and 308. I will not ship Large or Hazmat items, pick up local in the Manalapan area. I am willing to drive 10 miles in any direction. For large orders I would consider driving further. I can ship small, non-Hazmat items on your dime. Keep in mind, bullets are small but very heavy, shipping them will be expensive   My pricing methodology is simple, all prices are based on retail prices as of 6/29/2022: All hardware, whether New or Used, is 10% below amazon prices. Powder is full retail price per powder valley prices for un-opened containers. 10% below retail for remaining amount of opened containers Primers are all 10% below Powder Valley prices because I threw out all the original 1,000 count outer boxes and have the 100 count cards in ziplock bags Bullets are full retail price per powder valley and Berry’s prices for un-opened boxes. 10% below retail for loose bullets All prices are rounded to the nearest dollar There is always room to negotiate price as long as the offers are reasonable. But all negotiations must be completed prior to delivery, not during the delivery (I had a bad experience with this).   First “I’ll take it” in the thread, not via PM, gets the sale. If we are negotiating via PM and someone says “I’ll take it” in the thread during negotiations, the “I’ll take it” gets the sale.   If you want all of it, we can work out a package deal, and you will get all my brass for free, some of which is already primed. But keep in mind, it will be around $3K   Most items can be purchased separately but some will need to be combined for obvious reasons. Here is the extensive list. Photos will be provided upon request, there are too many to put into the post.   I accept Cash or Paypal as gift   Press - as a set - $643.49 Total    Hornady LnL AP press (Includes all retail components and manual, NO shell plates or dies)     - $507    Inline Fabrications roller lever (painted)                                                                                                 - $50    Inline Fabrications dual bin output tray                                                                                                  - $36    Inline Fabrications skylight                                                                                                                       - $27    Inline Fabrications shell plate lighting                                                                                                    - $25    3D printed case feeder                                                                                                                              - FREE    3D printed attachment to empty powder drop                                                                                     - FREE    Wood stand                                                                                                                                               - FREE    MTM Primer Flipper (Clear Smoke)                                                                                                      - FREE    Hornady LnL Shell Plates – Sold individually #1                                                                                  - $36 #8                                                                                  - $36 #16                                                                                - $36 #25                                                                                - $36   Hornady Custom Grade New Dimension 2-Die Set – Sold individually .223 (2 LnL Bushings Installed - $12)                             - $60 .308 (2 LnL Bushings Installed - $12)                             - $60   Hornady Custom Grade New Dimension 3-Die Set – Sold individually 9 mm (3 LnL Bushings Installed - $18)                            - $68 .45 ACP (3 LnL Bushings Installed - $18)                        - $68   Case Prep – Sold individually Frankford Arsenal Platinum Series Rotary Tumbler with 7-Liter Capacity                                                                                               - $135 Frankford Arsenal Quick-N-EZ 110V Case Tumbler Kit Reduced more than 10% due to loose powder cable in the tumbler         - $50 Frankford Arsenal Platinum Series Case Trim and Prep                                                                                                                             - $171 Lyman 7832323 Reloading 223 Case Length/Headspace Gauge                                                                                                             - $19 Lyman Reloading 308 Win Case Length/Headspace Gauge                                                                                                                      - $19 Lyman Reloading 45 A.C.P.

    • Wow! I did feel a little embarrassed being something like the 900, 000ish person to view that.  With that in mind, we do live in an age where any view on any issue can be found pretty easily.  All I know is that I could never do something like that without getting the red flag treatment. Quiet rant over.
    • IMO, Anthony @gunforhire has setup a great webpage that has links to all the forms you need to use and he's setup time slots for people to sign up for their the Qualification - https://gunforhire.com/nj-ccw-permit/ The website lists the qualification as $150 (+ $50 for each additional gun). Looks like a one stop shop for CCW needs.
    • You really think me pointing out where the gloom mongering is incorrect it giving people ideas? I am only refuting what has already been complained about. I qualified with Bob Bajor at Phillipsburg because that's my home range. He is listed on the RPO list on the NJSP web site: https://nj.gov/njsp/firearms/shooting-ranges.shtml
