    Just some food for thought, for those who like to argue about the gun laws making Europe safe....

    http://www.panamalaw.org/panama_gun_laws.html
    652 murders out of a mostly urban population of 3.3 million. If only Chicago were that safe....

    I would also imagine that there are several other CA countries where the results are similar

    I really hate to rain on your parade, and I'm certainly not sticking up for NJ's gun laws, but your research fails a quick fact check.

    You state that Panama is safer than NJ, based on the rate of murders.

    Panama had 652 murders in 3.3 million people in 2008

    New Jersey had 376 murders in 8.6 million people in 2008

    So, yeah, NJ has about less than 1/4 of Panama's murder rate. If you are looking to make Panama appear safer than New Jersey, murder rate isn't the way to go.

    Actually I did not, although I did imply that.

    We can argure the difference between an open statement and an implication, but either way, it doesn't change the fact that NJ's murder rate is nowhere near Panama's.

    I would choose Panama over NJ if forced.
    Not mentioned however is the corruption of police and officials.
    You WILL be paying them off for any services you get from them.
