First up, Don't-Screw-Around-With-Me-Biden opines that if Republicans don't support Barry and his jobs bill, that violent crimes will rise. RAPE! MURDER! MAYHEM!
To balance this view, the NRA reports on the FBI report:
Preliminary FBI figures reveal that the levels of both violent crime and property crime in the U.S. declined in 2010 from the previous year's data. The 2010 Preliminary Annual Uniform Crime Report, just released today, shows a 5.5 percent decrease in the number of reported violent crimes when compared with data from 2009. It also shows a 2.8 percent decline in reported property crimes.
You can also go the the FBI site as well, to get the low down.
Add to all of that, during the same time the FBI took their stats, with this: Record numbers licensed to pack heat
Golly gee Joe, I'm not the Vice President of the United States, but even I can do this simple equation.
Rape + Murder + Mayhem/more licensed heat-packers = LESS CRIME.
Sucks to be you when the truth wins out, don't it Joe.
