    May 2013 DOJ Firearm Crime Reports Shows Continued Drop

    Department of justice released their annual firearms crime report in May, and lo and behold firearm crime dropped again in 2013. From the report:

    In 2011, a total of 478,400 fatal and nonfatal violent crimes were committed with a firearm (table 1). Homicides made up about 2% of all firearm-related
    crimes. There were 11,101 firearm homicides in 2011, down by 39% from a high of 18,253 in 1993 (figure 1). The majority of the decline in firearm-related homicides occurred between 1993 and 1998. Since 1999, the number of firearm homicides increased from 10,828 to 12,791 in 2006 before declining to 11,101 in 2011.
