Republican Harford County Councilman Dick Slutzky Is A Stooge For The NRA, He Claims “We Are Actually ArguablyThe Second Safest Country In The Western Hemisphere” When In Fact America Has More Gun-Related Killings Than Any Other Developed Country

gunlawsanddeathrates41198-1-4023btsGDP_PPP_Per_Capita_IMF_2008_svgCouncilman Dick Slutzky lies. He lies about the Johns Hopkins Center For Gun Policy because he and the NRA dont believe fact-based reality.  And his central remark at the Council meeting was a perfect example of lieing and decieving with statistics.  He says ., “We are actually  argulably the second safest country in the Western Hemisphere for crimes with firearms”. Western Hemisphere? False comparisons is a tactic of the dishonest.”   This is  bullshit  right out of the NRA handbook.   The Western Hemisphere includes only four developed countries. U.S., Canada, Mexico and Chile. Mexico stats are not available. Among developed countries in the West Hemisphere we are number one in gun violence. And more importantly, we are number one in gun violence  among all developed countries. The gun homicide rate is 20 times the combined rate of other western nations. Gun violence in U.S. compares to the deadliest nations in the world. Mr. Slutzky is a political stooge for the NRA.
