Crime Rates in Virginia Plummets Despite Right Wing Tea Baggers Buying More Guns

Alas, the crime rate at the Shackleford household has not seen any change either way since more guns than people were introduced into the environment. Granted, the Shackleford household started with a baseline of zero crime, but come on, I was promised less crime!

Firearms sales rose 16 percent to a record 490,119 guns purchased from licensed gun dealers in 2012, according to sales estimates obtained by the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

During the same period, major crimes committed with firearms dropped 5 percent to 4,378.
