    Much as I support self-defense, this is an example of correlation, not causation.

    Bigger factor is probably that the population has been aging steadily; median age is up to 37 or so. Crime is generally a young man's game.

    I respect and accept your knowledge on the subject.

    However, I'd have never thunk it. All the gang violence nowadays, it's hard to believe my generation caused as much violence. :dunno:
