I was wondering why all the Kamala fuss the last few days.

I have no idea what argument you are making with that statement. How does California being a sanctuary state change that sanctuary cities have the same or a slightly lower presence in city crime ranking?

But if you want to look at state level instead of just cities, we can do that.

California has a lower overall crime rate than Texas does, at 4.720 crimes reported per 100.000 inhabitants, versus 4.936 for Texas;

The murder rate is also lower, with it being 6.1 in California versus 7.6 in Texas;

So it certainly does not seem like banning sanctuary made Texas any safer, nor does granting sanctuary seem to have made California any more unsafe.

That’s your problem-you fail to see what’s obvious from the facts. All you do is quote lines you see in “peer reviewed papers” (PRP) without taking a moment to observe the bigger picture.

First you denied that illegal immigrants were sources of higher criminal activity by quoting some PRP saying their rate was less than the general population.

Then we compared that statement to live results and you produced a list of cities and crime rates claiming that Texas was worse for some reason, when in fact numerically, CA is worse than Texas.

And then I offered the fact that CA is a sanctuary state as opposed to Texas which would further buttress my contention that illegal immigrants are bad for causing crime.

Which goes back to refuting your assertion that illegal immigrate are good for keeping crime down.

They aren’t and they don’t.

When are you going to learn you’re on the wrong side of this argument.

Gun control is the problem not the solution.

You don't need to read pear reviewed papers. Just read the actual g'damn statistics from the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/pressroom/sosmap/homicide_mortality/homicide.htm), the FBI (https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s) or the Texas Department of Public Safety (https://www.dps.texas.gov/section/crime-records/texas-criminal-illegal-alien-data).

None of those pesky "academics" with their "peer review" and "science" there. Just cold, hard numbers compiled by government agencies.

City level data shows that of the 100 most populous cities in the US, those considered "sanctuary cities" fare no better or worse than other cities.

State level data shows that California and Massachusetts, the two "sanctuary states" I know of, are 17th and 34th on the list of states by crime. Texas is 16th and Alabama, which is the strictest state on immigration after HB56 is 15th.

Crime statistics from Texas, the only US state to note the immigration status of offenders, shows no higher conviction rates for illegal immigrants than for citizens.

Gun Deaths? Another peer reviewed paper fiasco. Mixes homicides snd suicides, ignores crime deaths in general and just lumps everything together in one amorphous blob- gun deaths.

So much for objectivity.

No mention of knives clubs fists feet, or breakdown of suicides by methodology, guns, knives, poison, rope drugs, gas , etc.

Real objective. Yep.

Which is why I have a very hard time digesting alleged intellectual treatises - most of them are just shills for research money putting out headlines with some math making their content unintelligible but attractive to the uninformed.

As for the FBI UCR, I often quote them. That’s where the statistics for the dangers of gun control are found, ie, about 10,000 killed by criminals with guns versus about 500-1000 criminals killed with guns in a country allegedly awash in guns. 10-1 or so advantage criminals v citizens in the US.

Perhaps you missed that.

What’s really interesting is for the 700 people killed in the UK annually only about 7 criminals are killed in self defense. The ratio there is 100-1.(!!!). Remember to keep in mind that 50 years ago the UK only had about 100 homicides a year.

Thus further illustrates the dangers of gun control.

I’m betting Denmark has a similarly high number.

Gun control is the problem not the solution.

Yesterday In Russia where assault firearm was always prohibited a school mass shooting happened. 13 people killed, 9 of them are children. 23 injured, 20 of them children.
Getting rid of firearm just help a government oppress you if it will come to dictatorship.

And by the way it is not the first school mass shooting in Russia this year.

This is exactly what the IRS/federal government wants, same reason bearer bonds are illegal. Only a scummy criminal would want to carry around and spend a lot of cash without the benevolent government knowing about it after all, right?

When did BBs become illegal?

Well you caught me a lie glib hyperbolic statement, they weren't technically outlawed but were rather effectively banned by the TEFRA Act in 1982 which stripped the tax benefits and penalized companies issuing them so they basically just vanished.

But to your point I guess a lottery ticket is also a bearer bond so it's not like they're actually outlawed, just rendered mostly useless as an investment item.

There was a video of LGBTQ types in full BDUs guarding a groomer reading in Texas. You sure you got the right state?
