Gun ownership in the United States is hitting record highs, and over 100 million firearms have been sold during the Obama administration. But as Bob Owens over at Bearing Arms writes, (citing Timothy Carney)something else is hitting records, too: murder rates are at record lows.
This dramatic drop in per-capita murders to the lowest point ever recorded since the FBI began tabulating this data 55 years ago is a wonderful thing, especially as it continues to drop as more Americans own more guns that ever.
While the anti-gun left clings to the delusion that there fewer gun owners than ever based on junk polling data, we know in the real world that Americans have purchased more than 100 million firearms during Obama’s Presidency, that there are more concealed carriers than ever, and there more women, minorities, and youth involved in shooting than ever.
Funny, isn't it?
