'Facts are Stubborn Things'
More guns, less crime, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.
The latest data on murders committed with guns, is causing problems for gun control advocates. The Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that since homicides peaked in 1993, murders with guns are down 39%. A Pew Research Center study found that homicides with guns fell almost 49%. Both reports found that non-fatal crimes involving guns were down 70%. At the same time, the number of guns in private hands increased dramatically. Hmmm, more guns, less crime… Indeed, as John Adams made clear in 1770, “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclination, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”
