Not everyone in California is completely nuts

And the ones who aren't...are armed. Nice.

As Calif. gun sales go up, number of gun-casualties goes down

(CBS News) LOS ANGELES - Gun sales in California are booming. More than 600,000 were sold in 2011. However by last year, sales had jumped to 817,000. That's an increase of 36 percent. But we noticed the number of people wounded by gunfire is dropping.
California gun sales have steadily risen from 350,000 in 2002, to last year's record. Recently, some gun owners became worried that President Obama's reelection and the Newtown shooting will lead to more gun control. Military style weapons have become popular for target practice and self-defense.

Yet despite the rise in gun sales in California, there has not been a corresponding rise in gun deaths or gun injuries. Hospitalizations for gun injuries have actually dropped nearly 28 percent and gun deaths by 15 percent.

Gun sales go up; crime rates go down.

This isn't rocket science, kittens.

Here are the four most likely results of guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens.

  1. The criminal realizes that crime really doesn't pay, and may even cost him his life, and decides to straighten himself out.
  2. The criminal attempts a robbery/rape/murder/assault/whatever and is stopped by a law-abiding gun owner.
  3. The criminal attempts a robbery/rape/murder/assault/whatever and is killed by a law-abiding gun owner.
  4. The criminal kills the law-abiding gun owner.
Those are the best odds you are going to get on the issue of crime and violence. I'll take'em.

Notice that "the police show up in the nick of time and stop the robbery/rape/murder/assault/whatever" was not one of the choices. Police investigate crimes; they do not stop them.

Law-abiding gun owners do.


  1. Why, that can't be right! Why, everyone knows that the more guns there are available, the more crime there is. Just ask Diane Shitstain or Mayor Bloomturd, or Il Douche the BlightBringer, they'll tell you.

    1. The more guns that are available "in the wrong hands", Ogrrre. Oh...and YOU'RE the "wrong hands."

      To our rulers "law-abiding" means nothing. It earns you nothing. It grants you nothing.

      Shut up. Get in line. And keep your head down. President Zero is passing....

  2. To paraphrase Bugs Bunny, "Y'...ep."

    1. LOOOOOOVE Bugs Bunny.

      But my favorite is Daffy Duck. "I may be a coward...but I'm a GREEEEEDY little coward." He is just so despicable.

    2. I'm kind of partial to Marvin the Martian and his "earth shattering kaboom" producing Q38 Space Modulator.

  3. "Where's the earth shattering boom?? There was supposed to be an earth shattering boom!"

    Bahaha! Loved all those old cartoons..
    Daffy and the Coyote are my favourites - they just never learned.... hmmm, remind you of anyone? :P


    And the baby Jesus smiled. He'd have laughed if her aim had been a bit better, though.

    And, this is the type of woman Diane Shitstain wants to kill with her gun ban/resgistration/confiscation. And they said the Republcans were waging a war on women!

    1. And they said the Republcans were waging a war on women!

      Ogrrre, this is EXACTLY right. The real War On Women isn't about who we can screw and who gets the bill. It's for the right of self defense. The gun is the FIRST and ONLY weapon invented that allowed women to finally gain some level of autonomy because we were at last capable of "evening the playing field." Before guns, women HAD to be "owned" by a male or we were instant victims. Every time. Add children into the mix, and we were instant victims with completely helpless victims. A woman is no match for man with any other weapon (barring she can fight like Scarlett Johannson...ahahahahaha!)
