Mass. has lowest US rate of gun deaths
Boston Globe [MA], by Travis Andersen

Original Article

Posted By:nhchemist, 1/11/2017 3:42:26 PM

Massachusetts had the lowest gun death rate in the country in 2015, newly released federal data shows, and advocacy groups on Tuesday attributed the state’s ranking to its tough firearm laws. There were 213 gun deaths in the state in 2015, for a rate of 3.13 per 100,000 residents, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. The CDC calculates the gun death rate by dividing fatalities by the state’s population and multiplying that figure by 100,000. Total gun deaths include homicides, suicides, and accidental shootings.

Comments:
More fake news serving the gun control industry. Homicide death rate for NH and MA; 0.0 and 2.1. Firearm mortality for NH and MA; 8.9 and 3.1. I guess NH needs better hunter training, since we don´t murder each other at the rate MA does.

Not reported the number of rapes and robberies of victims who were unconstitutionally disarmed by the state.

They didn´t break out the type of firearm death (criminal, accidental and most important since its the highest, suicide. So this report could be another politically motivated from a political agency desperate to get more money form politicians to skew the reality of the deaths. It could be mental health and gang related violence are more an issue than gun laws.

Horse hockey. IL has far more restrictive gun laws... And it has Chicago. Any questions?

Seattle is a relatively affluent city across the board, has strict gun laws, and very few crimes committed with firearms.

Chicago´s population swings wildly from very wealthy to dirt-poor, has very strict gun laws, and a huge number of crimes committed with firearms.

It´s not the laws or the accessibility of firearms. It´s the people. Anyone saying differently is an ignorant idiot or embraces an anti-gun ideology (but I repeat myself).

The take-away: you can use "statistics" to make pretty much any point you want - it´s just a matter of figuring out how to skew those numbers.

Or as Mark Twain explained it: "There are lies, DAMNED lies, and statistics."

Show me the rate of gun deaths by State, and compare it with the population of blacks by State. Although it is true that correlation does not prove cause, the comparison should prove informative.
The black population of MA in 2015-2016 was about 6%.

Given a set of statistics and an assertion, a gifted statistician can present the former in ways that appear to positively confirm the latter. And there are plenty of idealistic MIT aces (in Massachusetts) who are politically to the left of Mao and more than willing to provide their services to the distortion of numbers in an attempt to justify the elimination of gun rights.

Conflating suicides by gun with murders is intentional misinformation, i.e. "gun deaths". Carefully crafted lie.

Homicide rate is the correct measure.

New Hampshire is lowest at 1.1, then Hawaii, Vermont, Maine, Utah, and finally Mass comes in at 6th, tied with Idaho where guns are essentially unregulated by state laws. Note that the murder rate in Mass is almost twice that of New Hampshire, which has much more relaxed firearms laws than Mass.

No correlation between gun laws and murders with guns, NONE. Been tested time and time again, but gun control does not work.

A Project Baltimore investigation has found five Baltimore City high schools and one middle school do not have a single student proficient in the state tested subjects of math and English. (Snip) It’s a school where only half the students graduate and just a few dozen will go to college. Last year, not one student scored proficient in any state testing.

There’s a massive amount of obtuse hypocrisy within Democrats’ accusing Russia’s Vladimir Putin of interfering in the U.S. election and yet they watch Barack Obama campaign for Emmanuel Macron in French election. Yes, the ever present Mamet Principle is once again clearly on display. (Snip) The outrageously divisive comments from Macron are profoundly ironic considering the claimed reason for Obama’s endorsement. Obama says he supports Macron because he appeals “people’s hopes and not their fears”. Yes, you really just can’t make this stuff up.

CONCORD — Don´t blame Dean Wormer or double-secret probation; it was the New Hampshire Supreme Court that sealed the fate of the fraternity that inspired "Animal House." The justices ruled Tuesday that the former Alpha Delta fraternity house can no longer lodge Dartmouth College students under a town of Hanover zoning ordinance. When Dartmouth revoked the fraternity´s charter two years ago over rules violations, the fraternity lost its exemption to local zoning rules that had allowed 12 to 18 people to occupy the same home, the court ruled.

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major overhaul of the party´s organization, which has been stung by recent crises — and the DNC has requested resignation latters from all current staffers. Party staff routinely see major turnover with a new boss and they had been alerted to expect such a move. However, the mass resignation letters will give Perez a chance to completely remake the DNC´s headquarters from scratch. Staffing had already reached unusual lows following a round of post-election layoffs in December.

New Hampshire ranks at the top among all states when it comes to manufacturing firearms, according to a recently released study by WalletHub. But because it doesn’t rank so high when it comes to gun ownership, and its congressional delegation tends to favor gun control, the state finished 12th in the study’s rankings, which measured dependence on the gun industry. Thanks to industry giants like Sig Sauer in Newington and Sturm Ruger’s facility in Newport, sales of firearms in New Hampshire totaled $722.92 per person, the biggest output per capita in the union, according to WalletHub. New Hampshire also ranked

   

 



 
U.S. attorney’s office plays to PC audience

When do you not call a gang of gun-toting illegal immigrant Dominican heroin dealers a gang of gun-toting illegal immigrant Dominican heroin dealers? When you’re the uber-PC U.S. attorney’s office in Boston. This is the same prosecutors’ office that, when dealing with, say, a white male U.S. citizen like Mayor Marty Walsh of Boston, leaks like a sieve. But when it comes to covering up for these fentanyl-dealing foreign nationals, omerta kicks in big time. It’s going to take Donald Trump and his AG Jeff Sessions a long time to get the Obama stench out of the Justice Department

Keep blasting the fake news media, Mr. President! It’s great stuff. We love it. There’s nothing wrong with calling out these lying alt-left frauds. On the question of calling out one’s enemies, Harry S. Truman once summed it up well. “I never did give them hell,” he said. “I just told the truth and they thought it was hell.” If you were watching the also-ran cable news channels Friday afternoon, you would have thought a disaster on the magnitude of a combined 9/11 and Pearl Harbor had just occurred at the Trump White House.

The FBI on Wednesday released nearly 400 pages of records from an investigation it conducted on Donald Trump’s family real estate company in the early-1970s. The documents consist of interview notes, handwritten statements and FBI reports compiled during the bureau’s investigation, which occurred between 1972 and 1974. The FBI’s investigation centered on allegations that the Trump Management Company, which was owned by Trump’s father, Fred, discriminated against applicants for apartment rentals based on their race.

Here are five, all of which are doable. First, repeal Davis-Bacon. (SNIP) Second, pass medical malpractice tort reform.

Two leading Republican senators on Sunday said President Trump is making a mistake by failing to more forcefully confront Saudi Arabia over the country’s treatment of women and other human rights issues in the Middle Eastern nation. Mr. Trump’s highly anticipated address in Saudi Arabia on Sunday will focus heavily on the fight against terrorism but will include little in terms of human rights.

While reading the following chronology, it is important to bear in mind that the FBI has never examined the DNC computer network because the DNC prohibited the FBI from doing so.
