A new Justice Department Report just out shows that Gun Violence has fallen dramatically in the last 20 years.
From NBC News:
Murders committed with a gun dropped 39 percent to 11,101 in 2011, from a high of 18,253 in 1993, according to the report.And this is all despite an ever higher amount of guns, and much more liberal gun laws across America. I am sure this will help the narrative that we need to clamp down on the guns right now!
Other crimes committed with guns were down even more sharply — from 1.53 million in 1993 to 467,300 in 2011, a drop of 70 percent, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.
