"What I worry about are guns that fall into the wrong hands," said Beck, "guns that are excess and become unwanted in a home. Those are the kind of guns that my officers run into on the street that are used in murders in Los Angeles far too commonly."


But the police can't keep up. About 2,000 guns they bought back last week is roughly the same number sold in California gun shops in one day.

"When I see that the sales go up, I don't like that," said Charlie Beck, chief of the Los Angeles Police Department. "My officers have to face these guns on the street."

What a moron. He admits that the lower gun crime rate is due to a 5 year crackdown on gangs. I doubt if gang members buy their guns in a gun shop.

What an anti-American, statist, douche.

These are the exactly perfect stats to use when talking with anti's. They may wish to make legislation based on fear, but fear is an easy emotion to counter act with the actual truth. Their wish and five bucks will get them a cuppa Joe at any Denny's, with a big tip to the server to boot.

Make sure you bring it up the next time you are all hanging out at one of your meetings.

The antis will acknowledge the statistics, and they will say that the FBI reports are out there, but the will also say "Well, we still have to do something. That's way too many guns out there." I've heard them say this. I got into a discussion with one anti and he said that crime going down is not because gun sales have gone up. He still believes the police with their guns will help him.
