Stronger Gun Laws, Less Violence

"More guns equal more lethal crime. The evidence is convincing. Studies consistently show how increases in firearms ownership are positively associated with increases in homicide and suicide. Whether on the street or in the home, where handguns and rifles are easily available they are more likely to be used in a criminal act. This applies across most wealthy societies and middle-income ones too.

"Strong gun laws, when enforced, can help deny access to firearms to people who really should not have them. The reverse is also true. In jurisdictions with weak legislation related to gun purchasing, ownership and use, there tend to be higher rates of aggravated assault, robbery, rape and murder. In the U.S., for example, right-to-carry laws are statistically associated with increases in the incidence of violent assault.

"These apparently commonsense observations are widely accepted by most public health experts, criminologists and law-abiding citizens. Yet, like those who deny the science of climate change, there is also a vocal minority of activists exhorting easier access to guns, including fewer oversight measures and weaker laws. Some of them resort to snappy, but misleading, sound bites to make their case. Their position is increasingly hard to defend."

MASS SHOOTING CASUALTIES IN THE U.S. - APRIL 2015
-71 Americans injured
-23 Americans dead

Again, these people were victims strictly of mass shootings (when four or more people are shot in an event, or related series of events, likely without a cooling off period). Not included are victims of shootings where only three or fewer people were shot.

By comparison, there were 117 people injured and 27 people killed in March, and 126 people injured and 83 people killed in January and February combined.

For more information, be sure to check out GrC's website, ShootingTracker.com.

Bonus fun facts!
-The nine days between April 7 and April 16 was the longest period without a mass shooting.
-New York wins first prize in mass shooting casualties for April, with 3 people killed and 10 people wounded.
-North Carolina wins a special consideration award for hosting two mass shootings in a single day (April 18).
-Speaking of April 18, there were five mass shootings that day. Neat!
-Once again not represented: Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, Illinois, Washington D.C., Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine, despite the tyranny of their draconian gun control laws. Huh!

Pesticide OK'd for Washington oyster beds amid concerns

Oyster growers in southwest Washington have battled to control shrimp that burrow in the mudflats and make it hard for oysters to grow. Now a group of shellfish farmers plan to spray a widely-used neurotoxic pesticide on up to 2,000 acres of commercial shellfish beds in Grays Harbor and Willapa Bay
SEATTLE (AP) — For decades, oyster growers in southwest Washington have battled to control native shrimp that burrow in the mudflats and make it hard for oysters to grow. Now, after getting state approval, a group of shellfish…

Here in California's thirsty farm belt, where pumpjacks nod amid neat rows of crops, it's a proposition that seems to make sense: using treated oil field wastewater to irrigate crops.
