After Heller, Violent Crime Down in D.C.

According to Peter J. Nickles, the attorney general of the District of Columbia, in the past year all violent crime in the District has declined, some categories by double digits. Armed robbery is down 12 percent and armed assaults, 14 percent. Total violent crime has fallen 5 percent.

Finally, D.C. joins the rest of the country in showing that more guns equal less crime, as legally armed citizens level the field.

Congratulations to all the citizens of our nation's capitol, those who legally own guns and all the rest who benefit from the character of the few.

Didn't the gun control people forecast the opposite result, that if guns became more easily available, crime would increase?
