    Detroit doesn't have strict gun control laws. In reality, the police chief has repeatedly and publicly advocated for law abiding citizens to arm themselves.

    I don't think NOLA does either.

    Not sure on the gun laws except for Chi town and DC which are very strict! However, all those cities are up there in murder rates!

    New York has had tough anti-gun laws for decades.

    Anyway, the argument that the statistics are skewed is still valid. Statistics always 'prove' whatever the statistician's boss wants them to 'prove.' If they don't, they never see the light of day. The boss will order up a dozen graphs and charts, pick the ones they agree with, and trash the rest.

    There are 3 kinds of lies: Likes, Damned Lies, and Statistics!
