Gun Control Facts for SCOPE Members
NY City has total gun control on handguns and long guns. The S.A.F.E. Act really did not affect the few and lucky gun owners in the city. It is no surprise then that polls show a large percentage of NY City people are in favor of the law. The S.A.F.E. Act actually exports the total gun control of NY City to the rest of us in New York State.
Here is what we can expect if the trend holds true. Here is the US Government’s own numbers charted out to show the utter failure of Gun Control.
The Statistics are provided by the FBI and World Health Organization. There is a pattern here that kinda shows that gun control has a negative effect on the Homicide Rate. But because of the media being parrots for the type of people that just can’t stand you with a gun, there is a problem.
The downward trend that has been occurring since 1993 can be attributed to more and more states moving to concealed carry licenses for law abiding citizens.
It should also be noted that over 50% of the homicides occur in cities that have gun control laws similar to NY City.
New York’s Sullivan Act of 1911 was the beginning of the modern day political infringement that we now call gun control and although just at the Sullivan Act was sold as being necessary for public safety, the actual reason was much darker than that.
Based on these results Upstate New York can expect an increase in the homicide rate in the very near future.
