From the Department of the Painfully Obvious

Brady grades and crime rates

Logical conclusion: Enactment or failure to enact Brady's legislative priorities had no correlation to murder rates. If a state were to go from F to A, from virtually no gun control to everything on Brady's agenda, the only result would be a joyful press release from Brady.

See also this post from last April on the not-so-surprising relationship between Brady Bunch report card grades and the violent crime rates of the six New England states.

Why, it's almost enough to make a person non-ideologically-blinded liberals think that there exists some bizarre, inexplicable relationship between a state's violent crime rate and its violent criminal population.

How very peculiar, indeed.
