Charlotte has a murder rate of 7.6 per 100,000 residents
New York city's rate is 4.0
Buffalo NY has a rate of 20.7
Greensboro NC is 7.8
All figures are 2010 and based on a per 100,000 residents basis.
so it is apparent that New York city's stringent guns laws do work - along with very aggressive legal pursuit of criminals.
New York STATE ranks 25th nationwide for murders on average.
Bloombergs right you can control it to a certain extent.
Hate to say this but we gun owners do need to keep our facts straight
