    I always like X graphs.

    Canada


    England



    USA





    BTW, the current total for USA firearms is: 429,207,448
    That's based on BATFE information. Namely the 1985 estimate, then the NICS data thereafter until March 2018, less attrition.


    Before looking at the next 5 graphs, look at the first three here
    http://www.rangebob.com/CCFR/Podcast1_Australia/

    These next 5 are all by John Lott, mostly from his original "More Guns Less Crime" book.
    These are less useful this week for Bill C71, although at least one brief asks why anyone in the city might want to own a gun (suggesting a city gun ban).

    Here it is on a publically addressable website


    In the above graph, the 2nd to the right says "states move to shall issue concealed carry permits".

    I updated these two graphs with more recent/accurate data. The main difference is that the non-gang line is now lower by the "unknown" amount line.




    The below is the same data as above, just in black and white for snail mail printed letters and SECU submissions.

    It is a powerful graph that clearly illustrates the singular problem Canada has with respect to violence, namely gangs.

    It is a powerful graph that clearly illustrates the singular problem Canada is going to have with respect to violence, namely gangs.

    The government's making us less competitive internationally (our GDP is rising slower than most industrial nations, including the USA), the continuing increase in public sector not private sector jobs, the drafting of laws that lessen deterrence to gangs, the 'budgeting' of $60 million a year to fight gangs and then not handing it out, are feeding the growth of a trend that's growing on its own.
    This is exactly what happened to democratic cities in the USA. The Liberals are standing on the accomplishments of the past as if they are permanent, while destroying that infrastructure, and recklessly spending time and money on feel good things.

    The first graph in post #10 is what we should be worried about.

    It's like Aesop's Fable "Ant and the Grasshopper". The fable describes how a hungry grasshopper begs for food from an ant when winter comes and is refused. Liberals are not preparing for the future. They're not paying down debt when they can, because in the future things may go bad. They're not knocking down gangs (by deterrence, by direct action, by indirect GDP competitiveness), because in the future they may be as bad in Canada as they are in the USA. They point their fingers at Chicago and say "stupid Americans" like it's not a warning, while simultaneously adopting the US strategy that if it's gang-on-gang it's not that big a problem, and when a stray bullet from that touches an innocent they look at the totals as if they were all flying at innocents and jump at ridiculous ineffective counter solutions (ban bullet proof vests, ban guns, ban knives, ban). Liberals throughout the ages have complained since the fable was written that the advice should be mistrusted and the ant's industry is mean and self-serving.

    Justin's continual "I'm listening" isn't leadership or wisdom. A tape recorder listens, but isn't wise stewardship either.
