In 1998, Massachusetts passed the toughest gun laws in the US…

What was the result?

Since 1998, gun crime in Massachusetts has gotten worse, not better. In 2011, Massachusetts recorded 122 murders committed with firearms, the Globe reported this month — “a striking increase from the 65 in 1998.” Other crimes rose too. Between 1998 and 2011, robbery with firearms climbed 20.7 percent. Aggravated assaults jumped 26.7 percent.

What has been the violent crime rate trend since 1998 in the rest of the nation; most of which has gun laws that much less restrictive than Massachusetts?

Gun grabbers in Massachusetts, however, continue to blame lax gun laws in other states for the ongoing disaster in their state. One wonders, however, how a declining violent crime rate in areas with easy access to guns results in an increasing rate in Massachusetts.

    Time for Massachusetts to go back to the old days and give the average Joe is weapon back so he can defend himself. It is only going to get worse if the state continues to keep the citizens disarmed while the crooks will always have their weapon of choice to commit their crimes. Wise up Massachusetts and smell the bacon before it is to late and your kid gets killed.
