A stacked bar chart showing just how wretched blue state gun policy is
I'm not clear on the vertical axis. Is that number the total number of gun laws in a given state with blue being the number that work and red the number that don't?
And so if I'm reading it correctly, California has > 100 such laws?
Ah show me the data! So you do and we get - nada. Doesn't matter, make all the laws desired yet the gun doesn't even know. The citizen knows and if they are OK with stupid what can be done? I know you also have a chart somewhere that details gun laws vs people killed by a gun outside of suicide. That chart shows the impact of the laws and how they help few.
You don't hang out with gun owners, do you? I don't know a *single* gun owner who thinks that the gun debate is being done in good faith.
Did stop & frisk get included as a 'gun law' in this analysis?
I'm familiar with Sacramento, the local TV news is reporting that the police are sure it was gang-on-gang violence, probably involving criminals allowed out of prison early.
The standard assumption is that laws and regulations (of many kinds, not just guns) reflecting leftist ideology are usually stupid and/or counterproductive because the politicians writing those laws/regulations are corrupt idiots pandering to low IQ, brainwashed, reactionary voters and special interest groups. The left seems to have overcompensated for almost as stupid "tough on crime" laws passed in the 1980s/90s that created a vast, bloated, expensive prison system.
The urban "blue" (D-party) areas of the state are increasingly like Idiocracy, especially low income areas. The more rural, "red" (R-party) parts of the state are almost as bad, with a lot of idiotic Republican ASTROTURF type bs.
