  •  No, there are ways to push down the murder rate (10+ / 0-)

    Everything from reducing the GINI index from 3rd world kelptocracy levels to removing lead paint from housing at state expensive will reduce the murder rate, as will improving the status of women (reduces intimate partner violence).  Decriminalizing drugs would also do wonders as 1/3rd to 1/2 of the murders in the US are drug related.  

    Passing feel good legislation won't do anything about these underlying issues.  

    Under capitalism man exploits man, under communism the roles are reversed.
