New Government Study Smashes Media’s Anti-Gun Narrative

Gun related crime has plunged since the mid-1990’s, so why is this Administration and the main-stream media trying to convince you otherwise?

In a study carried out by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, crime involving guns has dropped since its peak around 1993. So the media’s anti-gun narrative that, ‘more guns equals more crime’, has been proven false…again. So, is it desperation that drives the anti-gun media to new hysteria?

Between the years of 1993 and 2011, as the assault weapons ban expired, more Americans purchased guns, the Supreme Court overturned outright gun bans, and individual states not only loosed gun control restrictions but also issued concealed carry permits to private citizens, incidents of gun violence in America collapsed.

Between 1993 and 2011, nonfatal gun crimes plummeted 69%; from 1.5 million to 467,300. Gun-related murders dropped 40%; from 18,253 to 11,101. Gun-related murders for black Americans plummeted by 51%.

The report also shows that the media-created hysteria over school shootings is wildly misleading. Between ’93 and ’11, the murder rate in schools dropped by almost a third; from 29 to 20. – John Nolte,

So as it turns out, the folks at the NRA were right all along, yet few Americans are aware of the dramatic drop in gun related violence, with more than half believing that it has risen; this according to a new Pew Research Center survey.

Now more than ever, gun owners need to do a better job ‘evangelizing’ their friends and family to the benefits of gun ownership. Thankfully, we have even more facts to back it up!
