  •  It's obvious to me why homicides are dropping (0+ / 0-)

    but gun deaths aren't. It isn't just suicide. When you decriminalize shooting people, it's no longer counted as a crime. Case-in-point GZ vs TM. Under a more sane set of laws, that would have been a crime.

    Also remember that these crime states are self-reported by LE agencies that have an incentive to keep the crime numbers down. The one type of shooting crime stat that hasn't decreased? Cop killing. That's one thing LE is not willing to let slide.
