Response to jimmy the one (Reply #19)

21. Theres no misleading on my part.

 

All I did was peel away the layers of dishonesty, Which is why you responded:

The unvarnished truth offends you, and so you feel you must add varnish.

You evidently do not understand what a rate measures.




I understand EXACTLY what a rate measures, and exactly why you lot default to it. It hides the fact that strict gun control states are utter failures, and attempts to shift the focus to states with 'promiscuous' gun laws, by making them seem like the most dangerous places around, in spite of having gun death numbers that are in the double digit range.

No you cannot disregard New Mex, Alaska, or Nevada from the list of top ten violent crime rate states. They have HIGHER violent crime rates than California & New York, which have stricter gun control.


Oh, look, Alaska with its lack of gun control had 2.8 gun murders per 100k. How many gun murders caused the rate to go that high? A whopping 19. Say it out loud jimmy, nineteen. Why did 19 gun murders cause the rate to go so high? Low population.

While strict gun control NY Has a rate of 2.7 per 100k, it had 517.

Ca with their rate of 3.4 per 100k had 1257 gun murders.

New Mexico had 3.3 per 100k with its 67 gun murders. How did 67 gun murders cause NM to have a rate near that of CA? Because NM has a very small population.

NV had a rate of 3.1 gun murders per 100k, with its 67 gun murders. Why did 67 gun murders cause NV to have a higher rate than NY? Because NV has a low population.


Too bad so sad Jimmy.

You haven't either, you only think you did.


No James, you only think I didn't.

Whether you know it or not, you just got owned in the face.

Duh, mine measured violent crime rates, your map/chart measures index (of gundeaths I now see). I'm gonna buy you a copy of 'statistics for dummies', you couldn't recognize a fact from progun propaganda unless your life depended on it.


(and the rest of the garbage you posted for that matter)

Blah blah blah.

if so you need go back to playing softball on the junior varsity, you're out of your league with me.


Jimmy, I could have Alzheimer's, be half asleep, and in the burn ward on a morphine drip, and I'd still have no problems with the parochial sophomoric screeds you and your anti-gun buddies post regularly.

And as to being 'out of your league'...someday you'll know better than I do about this topic.

Of course, I'll be at my own funeral, when that day comes.
