Brady Bunch Campaign Likes Violence

That is the conclusion I draw, anyway. Brady Campaign's State Grades Not to be Taken Seriously

California got the best grade from Brady (C+) for having a lot of gun control. The CA murder rate (per 100,000) is 10 percent higher than the national average, and the CA violent crime rate is 13 percent higher than the national average.

Utah got one of the lowest grades (F) for their distinct lack of gun control. Utah's murder rate is 76 percent lower than California's, and the Utah violent crime rate is 56 percent lower than California's.

So the Brady Bunch - excuse me, the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence - seems to like crime, or at least to not be bothered by it. If gun control is about reducing crime (it isn't), then the gun controllers should love Utah and hate California. But it isn't about crime. It is about control. [via Sebastian]
