On a windless night, Vermont residence have reported hearing the eerie swishing of distant corduroy-clad legs as legions of freely living and/or dying New Hampshireans take to their post-prandial prowl, ever-vigilant against criminals and/or hippies and/or Massholes.

pdog, funny you should mention demographics.....

MA's stats were much higher per 100,000 residents in 1970, 1980, 1990, and 2000 for violent crime and robbery.
MA's stats are also higher, in most cases for murder and rape.
In 1980, VT out-raped MA. And in 2000 NH did the same (by A LOT).
The murder rate was about twice as high in MA than in NH and VT until 2000 when the murder rates evened out (2 per 100,000 for both MA and NH and 1.5 for VT).
In MA the rate for murder and robbery have declined since the 1980 census and violent crime and rape have declined since the 1990 census.

Now, here's a key element: the population density. People per square mile in VT, 66; in NH, 138; in MA 810.

We all know about those rats........

Remember that last election when NH voted blue? Massholes are moving to greener and less expensive pastures.....

They don 't work as well.

That 's like saying that all life boats
shud have some holes in the bottom.

In an emergency upon which your life, or other valued property, depends
u 'd want emergency equipment to be as reliable as possible.

NH has very low violent crime rate. Nothing to do with demographics, of course:
it is the logical consequence of a heavily armed populace.

Yes.

Criminals prefer not to get punctured.

If criminals are willing to ignore the laws against ROBBERY;
if criminals are willing to disregard the laws against MURDER,
HOW can we convince them to OBEY " gun control " laws ?

I wouldn't lock up my good silver when honored guests come to tea, but on principle, some people would be served with styrofoam cups and plastic spoons.

Of course, a really determined individual could turn styrofoam cuts and plastic spoons into weapons of local destruction.

Farmerman--

Box cutters have sharp edges. That is obvious.

There are people on this great earth, in this great country, who think they are safe from being stabbed with a plastic spoon.

I understand if one aims for the eye.....

Repressionists want to remove guns, saying they are sometimes used to facilitate crime.
They fail to understand that the actual weapon is the HUMAN MIND,
whose cleverness has not been controlled nor restrained (even in prison).
This mind expresses itself perseveringly, into the manifestation of its felt needs or desires,
and it has FOREVER to do the job that it selects
( e.g., the art of the gunsmith/merchant ). Prohibition is futile.

According to the NY Times,
shortly after 9/11, the Moslems were said to have been armed
only with " little plastic knives " used to murder the flight deck crew.

I wish the crew had guns in the cockpit,
but they were faithfully following the " gun control " philosophy,
to the delight n good fortune of the Moslems.

when i was a kid, we'd take cafeteria cutlery, break off the end, and file them down on cement or cinder blocks (blacktop doesn't work) until we had a wee little shiv with a wicked sharp point. good fun.
