Gun Crime continues to decrease and Gun Sales increase
by ADMIN on SEPTEMBER 29, 2011 · 2 COMMENTS
Despite increases in gun sales, Gun Crimes continued to decrease in the United States for the fourth straight year in 2010, according to the FBI.
The FBI recently released its Crime in The United States statistics for 2010. Overall, murders in the U.S. have decreased steadily since 2006, dropping from 15,087 to 12,996. Firearms murders — which made up 67 percent of all murders in the U.S. in 2010 — have followed this trend, decreasing by 14 percent.
an excellent article from Bill Wilson, LIberty Action Report
By Bill Wilson — Most Americans think that tyranny comes with the stomping of boots, secret police and a bloody takeover by brutish thugs. It is the vision of the Cold War, of the Nazi and of countless tin-horn dictators over the last fifty years. And while it is sadly true that this type of sudden move to an authoritarian regime does happen, there is a more subtle and ultimately more dangerous form.
This study is one of the first to estimate the total impact of illegal immigration on the federal budget. Most previous studies have focused on the state and local level and have examined only costs or tax payments, but not both. Based on Census Bureau data, this study finds that, when all taxes paid (direct and indirect) and all costs are considered, illegal households created a net fiscal deficit at the federal level of more than $10 billion in 2002. We also estimate that, if there was an amnesty for illegal aliens, the net fiscal deficit would grow to nearly $29 billion.

You all remember Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona , who painted the jail cells pink and made the inmates wear pink prison garb. Well……… SHERIFF JOE IS AT IT AGAIN!
I’m proud to report that From The Pea Patch has just gone over 2,000,000 hits for the year, with over 5,000 unique visitors (first time) per month. I’m reassured that we’re all on the right track trying to inform and enlighten everyone about the transgressions of the Federal government and the administration in particular. It’s time we all spread that word that those who work hard, pay their taxes, and love their country are taking her over again. Self-reliance, free enterprise, and hard work will win out. Thank you all for sharing in this effort. I’m proud to be an American and particularly proud of you.
