Congressional Study Shows Firearm-related Murder Cut in Half While Number of Firearms Increased

A new Congressional Research Service study notes:
Reports submitted by state and local law enforcement agencies to the FBI and published annually in the Uniform Crime Reports indicate that the firearms-related murder and non-negligent manslaughter rate per 100,000 of the population decreased from 6.6 for 1993 to 3.6 for 2000. The rate held steady at 3.6 for 2001 and fluctuated thereafter between a high of 3.9 for 2006 and 2007, and a low of 3.2 for 2010. For 2011, it has remained at 3.2.
It's just one more example that more guns do not lead to more crime despite what the gun ban lobby would like us to believe.  Dr. AWR Hawkins, of Breitbart News was on NRANews.com's Cam and Company and talked about the report.
