Justice Department Report

Breitbart News reports on the new Justice Department Report on gun violence, the report deals with the years 1993 to 2011 and shows the hype of Congress and the Press to be just that HYPE.

During this time period the “Assault Weapons Ban” expired and Americans began to purchase handguns. The Supreme Court overturned outright gun bans and individual states lessened gun control restrictions and issued shall issue carry laws.

During this same time period gun crimes went down, here are some of the stats in this report:
A. Gun related murders dropped 40%; from 18,253 to 11,101. For Black Americans it dropped 51%.
B. School Shootings in this time period dropped by almost a third, from 29 to 20.
C. Background checks is also a straw man that has been made up out of thin air. Less than one percent of state prisoners caught with a gun purchased it at a gun show. Moreover, who knows how many of those might have passed or did pass a background check.

I would suggest that you read the actual report which can be found at: http://bjs.gov/content/p8ub/pdf/fv9311.pdf you will that all of this is not happening in one or two years but rather over the entire period.

I have to say I enjoyed the article written John Nolte. We need to know that an armed populace is a much safer populace. I hope you will read both the article and the report for yourself.
