Gun Deaths Decline by Half Since 1993

I have a feeling if you asked most Americans what they believed about homicides using guns, the vast majority would say they have exploded in the last 10 years.

In reality, murders using guns have fallen in HALF over the last 20 years.

This is probably something that the liberal-gun-hating-media doesn't want you to know.  If they did, it would seem they would broadcast the good news that gun violence is decreasing!!

Several mass shootings in recent months have brought renewed attention to the issue of gun violence in America, and President Obama has again called for Congress to change the nation’s gun laws.

But the increased spotlight on guns does not reflect the overall gun violence trend in the country. Although most Americans think the number of gun crimes has risen, the U.S. gun homicide rate has actually stabilized somewhat in recent years, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of death certificate data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Between 1993 and 2000, the gun homicide rate dropped by nearly half, from 7.0 homicides to 3.8 homicides per 100,000 people. Since then, the gun homicide rate has remained relatively flat. From 2009 to 2014, the most recent year data are available, the number of gun homicides has hovered around 11,000 and 12,000 per year.


So why do you think the media and liberal politicians are working so hard to turn the nation against guns even though gun violence is decreasing?

The Bible says a day is coming when a large part of planet earth's population is going to come under control of the Antichrist and anyone who disagrees with his system will be killed if they refuse to submit.  Maybe the Dark Powers of This World want to see if they can disarm this it will be easier to control dissidents?

What do you think?  Any other ideas of why the media and politicians would ignore this recent Pew Research that flies in the face of what the media wants us to believe?
