The National Shooting Sports Foundation released another infographic showing how far crimes with guns have dropped since the early 1990s. To be sure, crimes where guns were used have dropped considerably, even though the mainstream media will always claim otherwise. The proof is in the pudding folks. Again, credit for this infographic goes to the NSSF. I’m going to break it down into various pieces to talk about, then I’ll post the entire thing at the bottom.
From 1991 to 2014, the number of people killed by a person with a gun has dropped considerably. As you can see the rate has dropped by 43% which is huge.
This next one will surely make liberal hearts pop all over the internet. Even though the last two graphs showed us that violent crimes where a gun was used is down, gun ownership is up. In fact, it’s way up from 1993. It’s difficult to explain away those pesky little facts, ain’t it?
Finally, an infograph about gun-related crimes wouldn’t be complete without accidental deaths in it. Which, by the way, is also way down, as you can see.
A poll was taken that states 41% of Americans claim to have at least one firearm in their home. Of course, guns are like potato chips and you can’t just have one!
Here is the infographic in its entirety, which has a few extra bits in it that we didn’t talk about above.
