As the crime situation up north goes south: "Canada's gun control scheme has not just failed -- it has failed disastrously. Clear evidence of that can be found in a comparison of the crime rates for Canada and America. While advocates of Canada's type of restrictive gun laws will play with raw figures and show how there might be many more homicides in cities such as Chicago or Miami or Detroit than there are in Toronto, the real story is found by comparing the per capita crime rates. Do that, and you will discover that Canada's crime rate is skyrocketing while down in the states, overall crime is declining."
