Gun Crisis? What Gun Crisis?


Have a play with this interactive chart from Pew, which shows that “National rates of gun homicide, non-fatal gun crime and all non-fatal violent crimes have fallen since the mid-1990s.” Pretty much every single combination of variables — murder, violence, sex, race – yields a decline.

But whatever you do, do not point out that most states have heavily liberalized their firearms laws since the mid-1990s.
