Moron explains VA’s gun sales increase and crime rate drop

| November 27, 2012

Yeah, this guy, Peter Galuszka, who writes at the Washington Post blogs is a total moron. If I wrote crap like his post today, you guys would force me off the internet. He tries to explain why crime rates are down in Virginia while gun sales are through the roof. But, you see, because he’s a moron, gun sales can’t have anything to do the crime rate being down.

It’s anyone’s guess why crime has continually dropped. Theories include demographic shifts resulting in fewer of the younger, inner-city men who tend to be involved in violent crime. Better community-based police work could be a cause. Some even say it’s because of large numbers of abortions by low-income women.

So, there you go, abortions are responsible for a lower crime rate – thank goodness for abortionists who kill our criminals before they have an opportunity to commit crimes. All hail the baby killers! So, if the rise in gun sales isn’t preventing crime, why are people still buying guns? Numbnuts explains;

[Virginians] and their gun sellers are riding a wave of irrational fear that was vigorously promoted by socially conservative politicians in the 2010 and 2012 elections. As for Obama, any link between a desire for personal, deadly firepower and the election of the country’s first African American president raises some rather ugly questions.

Got that? Since minority families are aborting more babies, crime is down, but gun buyers are the racists. Of course, Galuszka is a white liberal so he can get away with saying shit like that, as stupid and racist as it sounds.

    Sounds like Pete’s library doesn’t include a copy of John Lott’s, “More Guns, Less Crime.”

  2. AW1 Tim says:

    That man is wickid retahded.

  3. NHSparky says:

    Maybe the dipshit should take a look at the crime rate in “progressive” Maryland.

    Shall-issue = lower crime rates.
    May/No-issue = higher crime rates.

    HOLY SHIT!!! Who knew!

    Also, Pete’s library is also apparently devoid of Heinlein as well.

  4. Harrison says:

    I hate gun control as much as the next red-blooded American, but the stuff he’s saying about abortion is pretty much scientific fact. We may not like it, but it’s the truth; doesn’t mean any of us support eugenics, for example. Read Freakonomics, good book.

  5. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    “Some even say it’s because of large numbers of abortions by low-income women”.

    OK … so based on his theroy the following activities should see an apparent decrease as well:

    – Moonshining
    – People who watch “Jersey Shore”
    – Attendees of demolition derbies
    – People who swim with sharks
    – Fights in stores on “Black Friday”
    – Skateboarders

    Did I get this right?

  6. JP says:

    What an idiot.

    VA has lower gun crime and more guns, freer gun laws, as opposed to MD and DC right across the Potomac that have more restrictive gun laws and WAY more gun crimes (watch the local news any given morning/evening, shootings are almost ALWAYS Prince Georges County MD or DC.) and I doubt it has anything to do with low income abortions as DC/MD has just as many, if not more of those, yet higher crime.

    As far as “racism”, guess he’s not astute enough to catch the racism seeping out of this fine piece of bullshit he wrote.

    This guy calls himself a “journalist”? Well, that explains the staggering ignorance in the media these days.

  7. John says:

    Hey NH Sparky

    He would say its because they dont have as many abortions in that states thats why the crime rate is higher

  8. Twist says:

    He is sofa king we todd did.

  9. LebbenB says:

    I agree with the “demographic shift” in the article. As in, “Hey – Those Virginians got too many guns. We need to get the hell out and go to DC or Maryland.” God bless the PDs there, they need all the help they can get.

  10. NHSparky says:

    John–problem is, the urban areas have MUCH higher abortion rates, to the point where (and I wish I could find it easily) that in NYC alone, and especially among minority communities, barely 40 percent of pregnancies end in a live birth.

    Think about that. And liberals still deny that Margaret Sanger/Planned Parenthood has eugenics on their agenda in some fashion.

  11. Nicki says:

    That abortion theory isn’t new. He’s parroting Freakonomics, and this paper from 2004.

    The theory has been discussed and examined many times in this decade since Freakonomics was published. This wasn’t his stupidity. He’s just not that original.

  12. JML says:

    While it is true that there is no causal link to increased gun sales and decreased crime, this should be proof enough that at the very least increasing gun ownership does not increase crime. Many can’t handle that, as that would mean having to change their beliefs on gun control that they’ve held for a long time.

  13. RangerX says:


    What’s interesting about the theory presented in Freakonomics is that it is relevant to crime statistics in the 90s, not today. Levitt postulated that if you look at the timeline in relation to Roe v. Wade, the drop in crime statistics during the 90s was a direct result of legalized abortion, NOT the efforts presented by the Clinton administration. Using abortion statistics as a baseline, crime should have roughly flatlined in the late 90s, with only minor variation based on economic conditions. Problem is, that correlation doesn’t exist. What did happen in the 90s though was a concerted effort across the nation to allow concealed carry.

    So even in his parroting, he failed to make the connection explaining the current drop in crime….

  14. Nicki says:

    Ranger X – no one ever accused this dildo of being smart. Most hoplophobes merely parrot talking points. They don’t actually analyze information.

    In fairness, the paper didn’t point to abortion as the ONLY reason, but fourth in a list of four.

    1) Increases in the Number of Police
    2) The Rising Prison Population
    3) The Receding Crack Epidemic
    4) The Legalization of Abortion

    They also correctly point out that the top six factors that most people use to explain away declining crime rates likely had little to nothing to do with the phenomenon.

    1) The Strong Economy of the 1990s
    2) Changing Demographics
    3) Better Policing Strategies
    4) Gun Control Laws
    5) Laws Allowing the Carrying of Concealed Weapons
    6) Increased Use of Capital Punishment

    As someone mentioned above, correlation doesn’t mean causation, but at the very least we can see that increasing gun ownership and increased concealed carry laws did not contribute to violence in any way and did not result in blood in the streets as projected by the hoplophobic assholes at HCI.


  15. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    I find it interesting the only link this 4sshole can come up with for increasing gun sales is that whites are afraid because a black president is in the oval office. Apparently he can’t comprehend any numbers, white people elected Obama. There are not enough black people to get him elected.

    He doesn’t address that because he can’t comprehend that a weak, liberal president (regardless of race) would cause some people to be concerned for their personal safety and act accordingly by exercising their constitutionally guaranteed rights and own a firearm.

    Too bad we can’t find a way to decrease the ever growing population of journalistic j4goffs with a decided lack of talent.

  16. Nik says:

    So, if you follow the author’s proposals to what seems to me to be the logical conclusion, the crime rate drops presuming you kill the possible offenders soon enough.

    I never realized this guy was so racist.

  17. ex af says:

    This is not a new argument, its at least 5 years old. If you just heard it you’re a bit slow. Which doesn’t surprise me.

    Another factor is you lock up the SOB when he’s 12 or whatever and keep him in jail until he’s 40 and he’s too old to do all the crap he would have done at 19, or in his 20s or 30s. Of course he’s useless, but that’s what abortion is for. Either that or free birth control. As far as I’m concerned, first conviction for meth should get the death penalty, same as all the dealers. Period.

  18. While Y’all hit his other points, I want to take issue with his: “…the country’s first African American president.”
    He and 99% of the dopes who elected him do not realize that, no matter how badly they want it, America still has not had an “African American” president.
    the bastard, (by definition), is a Mulatto, (born of 1 black parent and 1 white parent); a perfectly proper description of him. He was not raised as a black, but as a rich white boy by his mother, never ate chitlins, never was a member of the black ghetto.
    Liberal writers take a lot of liberty with Mr. Websters book, don’t they?

  19. RandomNCO says:

    I don’t think you have to eat chitlins or live in the ghetto to be considered black….but yeah, I hate when people call him “the first black president” because he’s not black. He’s half black and half white.

  20. Country Singer says:

    “…younger, inner-city men who tend to be involved in violent crime.” Racist dog whistle!!!1!!elevnty! Won’t hear Sharpton or Clyburn castigating this “journalist”, though.

  21. B Woodman says:

    I LOVE gun control!!
    The two-handed Weaver stance works best for me.

  22. Hondo says:

    Actually, ex af, the argument’s at least 8 years old vice 5. It was bullshit on day 1 and still is. When people have the option, they arm themselves.

    Why? “An armed society is a polite society.” As well as one that has a lower overall crime rate.

  23. Redacted1775 says:

    I got one word for this fucking douche rocket: Switzerland bitch! Well that’s two words, but you get the idea.

  24. DaveO says:

    I may be incorrect, but since more African-American babies are aborted than any other race, is Galuzka saying Sanger’s Solution is responsible for less crime?

    And they call us racist?

  25. PALADIN says:

    The guy is a total shithead, but it’s okay for him to put the badmouth on people and use racism because he’s a Liberal.
    He suffers from a bad case of rectal cranial inversion…i.e. his head is stuck up his ass !

    Obama Enslaves & Destroys Inner Cities

    ( I experienced all this while trapped in a large American city.)

    The suburbs are booming, but not fast enough. Yessir, you ghetto folks
    in inner cities have started a good thing, but there are still lots of acres
    outside the cities without any houses on them. So you’ve gotta move into
    “untouched” city blocks and do the following:
    Throw trash everywhere. You’ll insure that your friends who pick up trash
    and distribute free rat poison packets will keep their jobs. And folks can
    predict the weather by the direction the trash is blowing!
    Walk down the street. Better yet, rhythm down it. And when I say street
    I don’t mean sidewalk. Save sidewalks for your friends on cycles. Besides,
    it’s hard to fit many cursing, screaming, drinking, pot-smoking kids on a
    sidewalk, and it’s also hard to spot keys and other things left in cars when
    you’re walking on a sidewalk!
    When walking down a street, turn your head when you hear a car coming
    and stare at the driver. For all you know, it might be one of your enemies
    out to get you. On the other hand, it might be only your neighbor and all
    that hateful staring might make him want to move out.
    Be sure to beget lots of unloved, unsupervised, unwashed two-legged
    “Obama welfare meal tickets” – either through wedlock or (preferably) out of
    wedlock. And let them often ring doorbells, begging for money.
    Turn quiet streets into noisy jungles. Have a blast – a
    long blast with your car horn under your neighbor’s window at
    3:00 a.m. Let folks know who the real honkies are! Blow your horn when (1)
    you see the police coming (2) you want to buy some dope (3) you want to sell
    some dope (4) for any other reason. Play your stereo so loudly that folks can’t
    hear sirens going to the latest holdup or arson. Be noisy, man, noisy!
    Be cruel to animals, especially “man’s best friend.” Tie your dog on a
    short chain under a blazing sun with no water or food or love or license or
    dog shots. Make him as mean as you are. Better yet, let your dog run loose.
    Neighbors love to find freshly killed cats (after hearing their screams) and
    other goodies on their lawns. Pit one dog against another in bloody “canine
    cockfights” while friends lounge on car hoods and cheer and make bets! And
    what madness is it where folks move out and abandon pets in the house,
    leaving them nothing to eat but their own droppings? This happens often in the
    ghetto, and almost no one will help the animals.
    Keep a good supply of Saturday Night Specials – also Sunday, Monday,
    Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday Night Specials. Your criminal
    presence will improve your neighbor’s light bill; when he isn’t watching you
    at night (with his lights off), he will be able to read books at night by
    the light of the police helicopter searchlights!
    Here’s more insanity: Uncle Sam spends millions of our tax money to
    move you into our neighborhoods where we lose much when we sell our homes.
    So you have your nerve when you glare and swear at us when we don’t move
    out quickly; but you’re the reason we can’t find good buyers! I really wonder
    what you and Uncle Sam will do when lots of folks move to the wilderness and
    live off the land and consequently don’t have to pay taxes to support such
    Finally, spread the rumor that all of your troubles are associated with
    skin, even though you and I know that your problem isn’t skin. It’s sin!!!
    What makes a ghetto? It’s not the paint on a house (or lack of it) but all
    of you two-legged pains in the neck!

    Can’t Cover Up.”
