Gun Control

This graphic has been around for a while, but here we go again:
Note that the graph goes up whenever the government tries to make everyone a better person somehow, and falls when they give up.Source here.

Just out of curiosity, what's the scale on the left side? What out of what?

That would be per 100,000.

If you could do another such chart with total violent crime it would be of great interest.

Joe Huffman is known for asking gun control advocates if they would still support gun control if, while gun-involved crime went down after enactment, total violent crime went up. The answers, or rather lack of answers, to his query led him to describe the inability of gun controllers to use facts to rationally arrive at a conclusion as a mental abberation, which he named The Peterson Syndrome after his prime example, Brady Board Member Joan Perterson.
