Hey - this is your typical moron who is uniformed about weaponry but is on the front line speaking to the press. The last paragraph sums it all up.

You notice he doesn't say anything about the lack of morals or "they don't give a sh-t about human life" as being the real problem. NO it's assault weapons...... LE needs to wake up and note that these people being killed are not your good citizens but scum bags who kill there own. I'll give them the ammo if they want to kill their own. . . . . . but to make this out like these being people killed or doing the killing are your average citizen is ridiculous.

Conical One

PS - I live in the Atlanta area - we see the news at night - these are gang bangers doing the killing and they are killing there own. Except the ATL PD who has a habit of killing old ladies in the homes on warrantless home invasions.

Chicago, NYC See Lowest Number of Murders in More Than 40 Years
Friday, December 28, 2007

NEW YORK — Chicago and New York are about to close out 2007 with the lowest number of homicides in more than 40 years, while cities such as Baltimore, Atlanta and Miami have seen killings go up because of what police say is a surge in guns and gang violence.

New York City reported 479 killings as of Dec. 23 — down 17 percent from the same period last year. The city is on track to have the lowest number of killings since reliable record-keeping started in 1963.

Homicides in New York reached an all-time high of 2,245 in 1990, making the city the U.S.'s murder capital. Since then, the numbers have plummeted, and experts attribute the decline in part to computerized tracking of crime trends and the practice of strategically flooding high-crime areas with police officers instead of spreading them evenly through the precincts.

Chicago is on track to have the lowest homicide toll since 1965, when police reported 395 killings. The city had logged 435 slayings through Dec. 26. In the early part of the decade, police often reported more than 600 a year.

Chicago officials credit the improvement to their tough stance on gangs, guns and drugs.

"Those three ingredients, so to speak, are what we're focused on," said police spokeswoman Monique Bond. "That's really what leads to random violence."

Those factors were blamed for increases in murders in other cities.

Atlanta had 126 homicides as of Dec. 26, compared with 111 for the same period a year ago. Police attributed some of the increase to a New Orleans-based gang that moved into town after Hurricane Katrina. Members of the International Robbing Crew are accused of killing at least seven people in Atlanta.

In Miami, authorities say the proliferation of assault weapons led to an increase in killings, from 56 in 2005 to 79 in 2006 and 86 so far in 2007.

"You just pull a trigger and 20 or 30 rounds come in a second and in those 20 rounds you're sure to hit your intended target and some innocent bystanders, totally unlike a firearm that is just one bullet every time you pull the trigger," Miami Police spokesman Willie Moreno said.

assualt weapons

I'd love to know if they ever actually found any full auto guns, the way he makes it sound all assault weapons are full auto, I know real ones are but the ones we get to own are not, which most nongun owners don't, which is the reason behind remarks like that,the uninformed are easy to win over, and of coarse most of them don't want to know the truth anyhow, it's much easier to let someone else do your thinking, which brings us to the reason this country is in the toilet.
