Two great articles that blow apart common gun control myths. The first, 10 Need-to-Know Gun Control Myths on Guns & Ammo’s site excellently debunks the lies used by gun grabbers in the current debate. The article includes links to and citations of source data – something the gun grabbers don’t have. Speaking of semi-automatic rifles and normal capacity magazines:
Breitbart reports the fact that gun-related crimes have declined dramatically since 1993. The opening paragraphs sum it up:
Between the years of 1993 and 2011, as the assault weapons ban expired, more Americans purchased guns, the Supreme Court overturned outright gun bans, and individual states not only loosed gun control restrictions but also issued concealed carry permits to private citizens, incidents of gun violence in America collapsed.
Between 1993 and 2011, nonfatal gun crimes plummeted 69%; from 1.5 million to 467,300. Gun-related murders dropped 40%; from 18,253 to 11,101. Gun-related murders for black Americans plummeted by 51%.
The report also shows that the media-created hysteria over school shootings is wildly misleading. Between ’93 and ’11, the murder rate in schools dropped by almost a third; from 29 to 20.
You don’t hear these facts from the liberal media. As legal gun ownership has grown dramatically, gun crimes have plummeted. Indeed, More Guns, Less Crime.
