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