Hey Mn. participants

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-05-01/51-murders-us-come-just-2-counties

 

Nothing surprising in this story, to me, except  the county containing Duluth.    What's up, to much snow, ice fishing suck?

While one of the most fascinating and beautiful cities in the Nation Duluth has always been more than just  a bit of a rough town. Very broad level of ethnic diversity and good old neighborhood tribalism.

Duluth is a neat older town, they have a great restaurant that rotates around while you eat, we like to go Salmon and Lake Trout fishing the water is 38º in July.  My family feels safe there, but on some of the charter boats, they claim it can be some rough areas.

 

The thing is they have oceangoing vessels with crews from God knows where, I suppose they get to drinkin` and fightin` and that`s when the murders happen   :).   Superior Wisconsin right next door is a real armpit, pretty rough looking bars, I reckon the longshoremen hang out there.

How do the progressive liberals types spin the obvious overlay on the places with the most murders NOTcoinciding with the places with the greatest gun ownerships, and also that the places that are Murderopolis's also vote almost completely blue? Really throws a  wrench into almost all their arguments about gun control  doesn't it?

How is it the the stupid Republicans, think that somehow owning a gun makes them tougher, and more of a MAN'S MAN?

You're trying to place blame, on the face that the larger densities of people, somehow equates to the Democrats doing to murdering.

Maybe, the people in the cities are seeing all the murders done by those that don't vote, or Republicans, and see that the only way that they can possibly be safe from the murderers is to vote Democrat. Or, maybe it's that they just see Republicans for who they are, because they communicate with real people, not their cows or a so called prssident that can't form two sentences in a row.

Live by the gun, die by the gun....

Tick Tick....BONGx3!!!!

It's a fair assesment that in those areas where the

prevailing culture has no use for firearms that the people would vote for nody having them or that fairly stringent regulation be placed on those who do have them. Why would they vote otherwise when the only end result of gun use they witness is generally tragic?

Re: Hey Mn. participants

It could be, but that still would not mean fewer guns equals less violence.  If fact enacting gun legislation while not seeing an overall drop in violence would tend to prove the legislation was ineffective.

 

It does not necessarily prove more guns equals less violence, other factors could be at work.

Wonder how much MS-13 gang activities there is in that area. Might be a major staging area for wide spread illegal drug distribution.
