Oh ya, that gun crisis you keep hearing. Ya, well it’s been getting better not worse. And you know, that Congressional study stuff. That suddenly was rather quiet once completed, largely because is showed that in most every way, increased gun ownership was not leading to higher crime.
In fact, though we’ve had over 50% increase in gun ownership. Gun murders have nearly fallen by 50% between 1994-2009.
As for the guns causing the crimes. It’s not scary ARs, assault rifles, hi capacity handguns. It’s mostly the smaller revolvers and derringers.
