ROXBURY, Massachusetts (Reuters) - Analicia Perry was kneeling to light a candle at a makeshift shrine to her brother when she was shot in the face and killed -- four years to the day after her brother was gunned down on the same spot.

The slaying of the 20-year-old mother -- on a narrow street behind a police station in Boston's poor Roxbury district last month -- is one of the shocking examples of a rise in the murder rate across the United States that is raising questions about whether police are fighting terrorism at the expense of crime.

In a shift from trends of the past decade, violent crime is on the rise, fueling criticism of Bush administration policies as a wave of murders and shootings hits smaller cities and states with little experience with serious urban violence.
Looks like the Antis are gearing up for the Mid Term elections and of course it is weaker gun laws and Bush's Fault :roll:

here is the part I really like
From the expiration of a federal ban on assault rifles to tougher restrictions on databases that identify gun owners, gun laws have weakened in the past five years, said Daniel Vice, an attorney with the Brady Center to Prevent Handgun Violence.

"The top five states with the highest gun death rates are five states with incredibly weak gun laws," he said, listing Louisiana, Alabama, Alaska, New Mexico and Wyoming.

In Miami, while overall crime is down, the use of semi-automatic weapons is growing.

"These things are dirt cheap," Police Chief John Timoney told Reuters, estimating the street price at $250 each. "We have seen these assault weapons being used time and time again by drug gangs."

I love the fact that a police chief is advertising the street price of a "Assault Rifle". Taken in context with the rest of the article the uneducated (gunwise) will think that tougher gun laws will prevent these street sales :roll:

I don't get it you see one minute a Marine/Soldier saying somewhere how weak the 5.56 is then you see some liberal media say how powerful it is. Semi-auto only no less. I've heard the same argument with the 9mm too. And who the heck are they getting $250 AR-15's from? lol
