74. That graph is fairly worthless without knowing what percentage of the GP that CHL holders represent.

Provide that significant bit of information and that graph might actually mean something. For instance, I'm guessing that in 1996, CHL holders represented a fair bit less than half of the general population in Texas. I know this doesn't come from the NRA, but the NRA is very good at presenting graphs and such that seem impressive, but really don't tell anything of significance by themselves.

77. That information is also available, and were part of the graph..

That's how I put together the rate.. X convictions per 100,000 (members of general public > 21 v CHL holders)

http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/rsd/chl/reports/demographics.htm

In 2011, for example, there were 518,625 license holders, and they were responsible for 120 convictions, ie, a rate of 23 per 100,000 compared to the general public over 21 yoa (minus the number of CHL holders) which had 63,559 convictions, for a rate of 362 per 100,000. 2.87% of the population over 21 are CHL holders, and are convicted of 0.1884% of the crimes committed in 2011.

eta: I chose rate as a comparison, because it's an apples to apples look at the two groups within each population. It would be silly to compare straight percentages, that would be skewed to the pro-CHL side.

Same year Perry signed Castle doctrine. just redefining gun crimes does mean they go away.

Not sure what you were trying to prove with this?

Are you stating the CHL are law abiding citizens? They are still committing crimes... with guns.

48. Only on paper.

No, thanks to too cute by half regulations implemented (must have live fire training, but there shall be no publicly accessible ranges in the city; etc) the number of legally owned handguns has went up a minuscule amount.

First Daley then Rahn have lost three (or is it now four) cases where Chicago makes a small change to the law that still amounts to a virtual ban.

http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-07-22/news/ct-met-chicago-gun-laws-20120722_1_gun-control-firearms-ordinance-legal-gun

Alan Gura, who represented the NRA in the landmark Supreme Court cases against Chicago andWashington, D.C., said there are many problems with Chicago's ordinance. After the federal appeals court ordered Chicago last year to allow gun ranges, the city rewrote the ordinance in a way that sill amounted to a de facto ban, he said.

"Upon losing a case, the city makes some symbolic changes and digs in for the inevitable," said Gura, who also represents plaintiffs in the suit, Ezell v. City of Chicago. "In Ezell, the city chose to defy the court and re-enact what is, for all intents and purposes, another range ban. And it's defending this absurdity with the legal equivalent of nuclear war."

After the Supreme Court forced the city to drop its long-held ban on handguns and allow residents to have the firearms at home for protection, Daley pushed his Law Department to come up with a new ordinance that could withstand constitutional challenges.

Though several key elements of the ordinance have yet to be decided, legal action by gun-rights advocates has forced the city to spend roughly $375,000 on outside counsel to defend them since Emanuel took office in May of last year.


And that's after the $400k check written to Gura in February..

68. Correct, the rest of IL != Chicago. Now, about that defacto ban *in* Chicago?

The gun ban didn't 'go away' in reality- first Daley then Rahm kept fighting to keep it, by tweaking the regulations and putting up roadblocks to keep people from meeting the legal requirements to legally acquire one.

Pipoman's right, nothing substantial changed *in the city*.

eta: Though Rahm seems to be not as ardent as Daley was. Maybe he's tired of writing checks.

At least, to legally do so.

No, the asinine changes in regulation have amounted to a de facto ban for most. Hence the series of checks the comptroller has had to write.

And, judging from what the gungeon trolls post here on DU, apparently the Texas gun nuts that I've known are a pretty representative sample.

If you are looking for statistics and peer reviewed research on guns and gun policy, here are a few places to start. But in my experience most gun nuts simply dismiss all the scientific evidence as "anti-gun bias", in the same way as creationists and global warming deniers.

You don't seem to understand the difference between raw data and statistical inference. You also don't seem to realize that many of the studies are actually government funded. I've pointed this out before, but like the rest of the NRAers, when you come across a point that you can't rebut, you simply ignore it and change the subject.

There's a reason that the peer reviewed science and the right-wing gun blogs come to opposite conclusions. It's because in science you can't get away with the kind of misdirection and superficial cherry picking of data that is necessary to support the pro-gun ideology.

59. Yes, all denialists make the same arguments.

Peer review is flawed. The studies are "biased", etc. When the science isn't on your side, you've only got so many cards to play. The gun nuts are not so different from the global warming deniers or creationists in the end.

24. Oh, and aren't you giving a lot of credit

to "gun nuts" to be able to pass concealed carry in 49 states with not a single credible effort in any of the 49 to repeal? No, it is the fearful few who can't wrap their heads around allowing the choice of personal protection to be left to the people.

29. Oh, the teabaggers get tons of credit.

In addition to ensuring that the US has homicide and gun violence rates some 5X higher than the rest of the developed world, they've also passed "Right to Work" laws, blocked climate change legislation, deregulated Wall Street to the point of near economic collapse, pushed creationism into schools, rolled back a woman's right to choose, etc.

Yay right-wing crazies! ( )

32. And all of those things have

credible opposition, not so much with this issue of liberalized civil rights/liberties. If they are so powerful, how on earth has Obama remained in office? No, people with your view on this are rare and the movement you wish for impotent, as it should be.

42. Yep, rare..

from your link..

In terms of protecting Second Amendment rights, 79 percent of Americans and 90 percent of gun owners said they believe an individual has the right to own guns, and the amendment is not limited to protecting the rights of state militias. Eighty percent of Americans and 90 percent of gun owners oppose a law that would ban the sale of all handguns.

I had no idea that 80% of the population were teabaggers...~snick~

47. Wow, the denialism is staggering. Did you even bother and read the article?

Try again...

51% think gun laws should be stricter.
66% support mandatory registration of all guns in a national registry
58% support banning high-capacity magazines
86% support background checks for private purchases

55. Umm, it's the same poll.

You just chose to ignore the bulk of it and pick the one sentence you agree with. It seems to be a pattern with you -- cherry picking data.

64. +1

Just what Illinois needs -- more guns in the hands of wannabe Zimmermans: "But officer, I killed him because he looked like he was about to harm me. I wuz jus standin' my ground bubba..."

Summary executions are becoming the right-wing Republican way of saving tax dollars by eliminating those cumbersome and expensive trials and long jail terms. According to the Tea Party Gungeon crowd, no one should ever be given a second chance if they fuck up. It's okay to kill them because they were just itchin' for it anyway.

57. Do people really stand up for minorities?

 

Or do people stand up for minorities when they are the minority and it is in their own self interest?

46. You're right. No black people fighting for gun rights in illinois

 

Thats why the plaintiff in the McDonald v Chicago case was black.

66. people need to come to grips with the FACT that guns are here to stay.

 

get used to it.

until there's a cheap technology that renders guns entirely useless- there will always be gun-owners in the U.S.
