But what do the experts cite as the reason?
“shifts in the crack cocaine market, which drove many 1990s-era murders; an increase in the number of offenders behind bars; the country’s aging population; and more sophisticated policing for the declines”
Pretty much the kitchen sink and everything but the increase in firearm ownership and carry permits. Just saying…
PAGunBlog.com also mentioned that the CDC’s report on guns for President Obama is done. Don’t expect the President to mention it much though. The result basically is that there was a ration of of 1:1.6+ ration of gun crimes vs guns used in self-defense.
I am pretty sure to quote ol’ Ben Kenobi “These are not the statistics the President was looking for.”
