    We do have a gang problem in NC however, it's not even close that we have one of the highest murder rates as those records are held by states where law abiding citizens have no rights to defend them selves.

    Not higher than Chicago where guns are banned.

    We are averaging a killing or shooting on a daily basis. One could say the great state of NC now has a murder rate and maybe one of the highest.
