"Absent crime stats involving blacks and this nation has the same overall crime states as does Canada and Sweden." Citation please. And while you are at it, cross correlate "drug war related". I'm sure that will go far to prove your "black is ebil" theory...

Per ...F. B. I. Statistics ... 51% of homicides in the U. S. are by blacks...
33% of homicides in the U. S. are by latinos...
14% of homicides are by caucasions...
2% of homicides are by asians...
Unfortunately, the F. B. I. Commingles the latino & caucasions together to report a "white" homicide rate of 47%. The F. B. I. does this by referring to latinos as " WHITE-hispanics.
They then "drop" the hyphenated - hispanic... Leaving just "white".
Ie. white - hispanic ... Homicide rate becomes " WHITE" homicide rate.

Political trends come and go in response to events. Gun control was the rage during the Clinton administration, but over the past decade or so it became an obsolete cause. After the horrific crimes in Newtown and Aurora, though, it's staging a comeback.

One thing hasn't changed: The agenda includes mostly measures that will have little or no effect on the problems they are supposed to address. They are Potemkin remedies -- presentable fa?ades with empty space behind them.

This is something that supporters as well as opponents labor to conceal. Treating them as serious allows them both...
