Firearm Sales Up as Murders Drop

The FBI recently issued its preliminary 2009 crime report, showing that the number of murders in the first half of 2009 decreased 10 percent compared to the first half of 2008.

If the trend holds for the remainder of 2009, it will be the single greatest one-year decrease in the number of murders since at least 1960, the earliest year for which national data are available through the Bureau of Justice Statistics.

Also, the per capita murder rate for 2009 will be 51 percent lower than the all-time high recorded in 1991, and it will be the lowest rate since 1963—a 46-year low.

Final figures for 2009 will be released by the FBI later this year.

According to gun control supporter dogma—"more guns means more crime"—the number of privately owned firearms must have decreased 10 percent in 2009. To the contrary, however, the number rose between 1.5 and 2 percent, to an all-time high.

For the better part of the last 15 months, firearms, ammunition, and "large" ammunition magazines have been sold in what appear to be record quantities. And, the firearms that were most commonly purchased in 2009 are those that gun control supporters most want to be banned—AR-15s, similar semi-automatic rifles, and handguns designed for defense.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation already estimates record ammunition sales in 2009, dominated by .223 Remington, 7.62x39mm, 9mm and other calibers widely favored for defensive purposes.

I was wondering if the increase in CC has had a part in this good news?

And how do you think the anti politicians will spin this data? Here's a guess of how the headlines will read.

Stricter Guns Laws Credited For Drop In Violent Crime.

Chuck Schumer announced today that gun control laws have lead to a dramatic drop in murder rates across the country. BLAH BLAH BLAH.



It's a know fact to us with our heads out of the sand and truth be told to them also, it just doesn't fit their agenda.

The article just came out today, but it could be a reprint.
