New Jersey homicide rate jumps in 2010

NJ.com is reporting that the homicide rate for New Jersey jumped by 15% 14% last year (2010). The article states that gang slayings account for most of the increase. It is worth noting that the increase occurred in a year in which MORE restrictive gun laws were enacted (e.g. one gun a month).

So while more and more criminals are killing each other and innocents who are in the wrong place at the wrong time, law abiding residents of New Jersey are expected to hunker down, call the police if they can, and hope that understaffed police departments can arrive in time to save them.

I have a better idea - let's support the Second Amendment Foundation and the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs law suit to overturn the unconstitutional handgun carry laws in New Jersey.

-- UPDATE --

The news article at NJ.com has changed the percentage to 14% - not sure why.
