Government's Own Statistics Fighting Them On Gun Control
#1
Quote:Gun violence has dropped dramatically nationwide over the past two decades, but nearly three-quarters of all homicides are still committed with a firearm, the Justice Department said in a report released Tuesday.

The report, by the department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, painted an encouraging picture of long-term trends at a time of divisive political debate over guns and legislation to regulate them. Firearms-related homicides declined 39 percent between 1993 and 2011, the report said, while nonfatal firearms crimes fell 69 percent during that period.

Check out the paragraph on gun shows.

In the beginning a Patriot is a scarce man, Hated, Feared and Scorned; but in time, when his cause succeeds, the timid join them, because then it cost nothing to be a Patriot.... Mark Twain.

Ditto! Nothing is better than being right and having facts and statistics back you up. All it does is make their emotional arguments look pathetic.

Has Piers Morgan left the country yet or jumped from a tall building?

I think I might faint. Or maybe the LSM is starting to wake up... I doubt it, but one can hope, right?

Don't worry guys, they'll find some way to spin it so that we come out looking like schmucks. It's what they do.

Usually I would agree with you, but it doesn't really look that way this time...
