Show-Me More Missouri Gun Control?!?!

BBC and backup for more gun control efforts: Missouri gun murders 'rose after law repeal'

Money line:

The study links the abandonment of the background check to an additional 60 or so murders occurring per year in Missouri between 2008 and 2012.

"Coincident exactly with the policy change, there was an immediate upward trajectory to the homicide rates in Missouri," said Prof Daniel Webster, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research.

Like it or not, in this Red State even the threat of gun control has elicited challenges to Presidential authority.

So, they believe that murderers in the past visited the Sheriff and paid $10 for a permit to buy a handgun.

there has been no abandonment of background checks. EVERY gun purchasers in the USA is subject to a federal background check, period. What isn't part of this study is the rise in homicides, mostly in the urban areas, are oddlty enough right around the time when the economy hit the dumps, schools lost their acreditation, etc. Jobs and education dry up for the urban core, urban core turns to crime.

What the fuck moron wrote this story? Probably Harry Reed or Nancy Pole-up-the-ass-loski. Existing law prevents private sales to felons and every purchase from a gun dealer requires a federal background check in Missouri. More damn fiction from the left wing freakazoids.
