Comment: Murder statisitics are the wrong metric

(See in situ)

Murder statisitics are the wrong metric

of measuring the so-called effectiveness of gun control. NYC has bragged about last year's murder rates being one of its lowest in years.

BUT! NYC "The Village Voice" reported that other crime has gone up 5-9% Rape, assaults, robbery ,etc.

To me, a increase of higher violence that beats a person within an inch of his or her life, but does not kill them is hardly something to celebrate because the UNARMED and DEFENSELESS victim was not "officially" murdered!
