Eric Holder’s Department of Justice says firearms-related homicides have dropped to 11,101 in 2011 from 18,253 - a reduction of 39%.
Meanwhile, the Pew Research Center found gun homicides fell to 3.6 per 100,000 people in 2010 from 7 in 1993.
The figures were released three weeks after the U.S. Senate rejected passing more federal gun control laws.
Obama has campaigned for tighter firearms laws since being re-elected in November 2012.
Both reports found the rate of non-lethal crimes involving guns had also fallen significantly over the same period.
The Bureau of Justice Statistics found that non-fatal firearms crimes dropped by 69% from 1.5 million to 467,300 during the period under study.
Despite the drop, some 56% of Americans believe gun crime is higher than two decades ago and only 12% think it is lower, according to the Pew Research Center. This is a direct result of the main stream media spreading Progressive Propaganda for the Obamanation and the progressive education system in the USA. I believe that Progressives, including the main stream media and current education system in the United States currently pose the greatest threat to our freedom, by continuously usurping the Bill of Rights. Progressives are a danger to the Constitutional Republic and our unique American culture.
Pew also found that African Americans made up a disproportionate share of gun homicide victims - 55% in 2010, despite accounting for 13% of the overall population. See Gun Free cities like Chicago and Washington D.C. for details.
In 2010, white people were 25% of victims but 65% of the population. Hispanics were 17% of victims and 16% of the population.
Gun Free Zones are magnets for criminals and crazies. Law abiding gun owners and concealed carry permit holders have been proven to deter crime and make the country safer for all of us, including law enforcement officers.
We are not going to change the less than a third of Americans who are hard core gun grabbing liberal fascists. Less than 1 million viewers a day tune in to hear Maddow and her ilk preach progressive propaganda.
We need to concentrate on growing the gun culture, the shooting sports, and both Constitutional and concealed carry. This ammo shortage is not going to last forever.
I’m going to do my part today by gearing up and heading over to Academy Sports and Outdoors. Details to follow…
I don’t know if he’s an actor but I do know he’s an irresponsible dumb ass, which is why Progressive gun banners used him. If you’re not a member of the NRA , you’re part of the problem.
