Despite trying over and over to show that crime rates and gun ownership rates do no correlate, I was unable to convince these people to even CONSIDER that guns are not the reason violent crimes happen.

Can you back up your claims or should we all just believe you?
One thing that no one has brought up is that the cities that have the highest violent crime rates are the cities with the STRICTEST GUN CONTROL LAWS. Washington DC, Detroit, Chicago etc.etc. Areas that have loosened their gun laws have seen crime rates drop. You don't hear too much about this because a few things. One the MSM has their agenda. Two the police unions don't want this reported because a drop in crime can mean a drop in police employment. It can also lead to a drop in Federal and State funding, which equals the same thing.
