compare this to say oh Houston's murder rate ranked 46th of U.S. cities with a population over 250,000 in 2005 (per capita rate of 16.3 murders per 100,000 population). you compare a city with strict gun laws to one with lax gun laws the city with strict gun laws is always safer

It has low crime because it pretends to control guns well. After pretending for a while, criminals who wanted guns went elsewhwre in the US nd stayed put and those who hated guns moved to NY.
