Despite What Most Americans Think, Gun Crime is Way Down in the U.S. over the Last 20 Years

As gun ownership has skyrocketed since 1993, gun-related crimes have plummeted in the U.S. Homicides involving guns are down 39%, and other crimes involving firearms are down 69%, yet 56% of Americans still believe that gun crimes are up since the 1990’s. This is according to a Pew Research study published in May.

Now I wonder why they couldn’t possibly think that? It couldn’t be the mostly-left-leaning gun-hating media that keeps perpetuating this lie, could it?
