Causes Of Crime

Listen to just about any liberal and you'll hear that if we can just get the guns off the streets we could virtually eliminate crime. Sounds like a nice little utopia, huh? Then those dern data hit ya in th' face:

Scotland tops list of world's most violent countries

A UNITED Nations report has labelled Scotland the most violent country in the developed world, with people three times more likely to be assaulted than in America.

England and Wales recorded the second highest number of violent assaults while Northern Ireland recorded the fewest.
Interesting, huh? The disarmed isles of Great Britain are still violent. But then the home of the IRA is the least among them. Interesting.

Now, from the same article, the coup de gras (if you will). Do you remember a comment on one of my posts a while back claiming that New Zealand was a great place to be precisely because there were no guns and, therefore, no crime? Well according to this study...

New Zealand had the most property crimes and sexual assaults, while Poland had the most robberies.
Good thing those women have been unable to defend themselves. I'm sure that NZ deals harshly with violent sexual assaults and I'm sure that is a great comfort to the helpless victims of those assaults.
