2016 NRA Annual Meeting: The Crime Report.

What happens when you gather 80,000 Second Amendment Loving Americans into a small area for a weekend of gun-related fun? Blood in the streets? Indiscriminate shootings? Bodies piling up at the smallest of offense? You know the answer.

Same as last year, I checked with CrimeMapping.com and used them again this year to capture the results for your convenience. I checked the three previous weekends for comparison purposes.

Weekend of 4/30/2016 to 5/1/2016
NRA AM Crime 4

 

Next is the weekend of 5/6/2016 to 5/8/2016
NRA AM Crime 3

 

And then we have the weekend of 5/13/2016 to 5/15/2016
NRA AM Crime

And finally the weekend of the NRA Annual Meeting, 5/20/2016 to 5/22/2016.
NRA AM Crime 2

Here is a handy guide of what the icons mean:
NRA AM Crime 5

The area in display covers way more than what most attendees probably walked around the Annual Meeting. For the NRA AM weekend, we see 5 icons with numbers, three represent multiple dug offenses and the other two are multiple larcenies.

As for the rest, you draw your own conclusions.

 

If a kind soul reminds me next week, I will update this post with the crime results for the upcoming weekend.


Update: It was told that the area shown does not correspond dead center with where the big exhibition happened and that is right.

I centered by mistake at the Kentucky Int’l Convention Center where the National NRA Foundation Banquet has held rather than the Kentucky Exposition Center.

I did go back to CrimeMapping.com and selected an area that covered both places and to get a better feel, I did the whole week rather than just the weekend. There is still a noticeable reduction in crime even when the area bigger and less affected by the attendees. I will update the maps at a later date since we are heading into a holiday weekend.

NRA AM Corrected

Maybe 22 square miles might be a tad much,,,, 🙂

  1. And this is why we win

  2. How do the numbers compare to other conventions?

    I wonder if the average convention draws opportunistic predators to the easy targets?

  3. make it an animated GIF and it’ll have an even more impressive impact.

  4. […] More guns, less crime: Crime around the NRA convention. […]

  5. It would be a helpful illustration to also show a weekend that contained another major convention.

  6. That’s funny. Is it possible to check for the same weekend the previous year?

  8. And Moms Demand Action wants to ban guns, especially carrying them

  9. Hillary will never admit this, nor will the world news. Nice job, thanks.

  10. Ok… I’ll preface this by saying that if you know me you know I’m pro 2A and there is no disputing that in any way shape or form. That said…

    The area in and around the convention center, where the NRA-AM was actually held, and I know because I was there, is not represented in his maps. Not to say the same or similar would not be the case if it was but…

    The moral of the story is let’s make sure to get our facts straight before we embarrass ourselves in our attempt to display our cause. Our detractors salivate at opportunities to make us look foolish in order to undermine our message.

    • And you are right. I centered by mistake at the Kentucky Int’l Convention Center where the National NRA Foundation Banquet has held rather than the Kentucky Exposition Center.
      I did go back and selected an area that covered both places and to get a better feel, I did the whole week rather than just the weekend. There is still a noticeable reduction in crime even when the area bigger and less affected by the attendees.

      • I have no doubt, I live in Louisville and work this area as well. Would love to see the updated results.

        Really wasn’t trying to be a dick, it was a good idea to research and a good comparative analysis that is very telling.

        Cudos realizing the mistake and going back and adjusting accordingly. Keep up the good work!

      • You’ve actually captured the correct area. The Expo was at the fairgrounds which was filled with 100% NRA members.
        The area you captured is where thousands of people were staying. This would be where the NRA people would be mixed with the
        regular population. This is where any crime would occur.

    Don’t forget to follow-up with “the weekend after,” as you’d asked us to remind you…

  12. I ran them myself and I went to the convention as well. I don’t think the data shows there was much crime activity around the convention center on almost any weekend.

    Having walked from my hotel to the convention center, much to my surprise, there is very little near the convention center. It is quite a walk to go anywhere that would make you a target. The pizza place we wnt to was about a mile from the hotel. Most of the restaurants were a couple of miles away from the convention center.

    Once people leave by car they are probably going to drive many miles before getting themselves from their cars. That limits thugs ability to engage you.

    I would be the first to crow about it. If there is something about the analysis I am missing please fill me in. I will say, crime definitely did not go up despite the huge influx of legal firearms.ng
