    Gun crime is down in the US

    Gun-related homicides and other crimes involving guns have fallen sharply over the last two decades in the United States, but most Americans believe firearms crime is higher now than 20 years ago, according to an analysis and a separate poll released on Tuesday. (Reuters)

    Really surprising. Maybe the internet has made gun crimes appear more prevalent than before.

    What I think I find most disturbing about this is that the media chose not to inform us of gun violence for all those years. The fact that it was actually worse than we're witnessing today is really alarming. The gun lobby had done a super job keeping us ignorant for far too long. Their days are numbered, the only question is how big a number that is.

    Also the 24 hour cable news cycle. I shouldn't even know the name Jodi Arias. Or Casey Anthony either. Or the thousands of so-called "celebrities", which reminds me of Kardashians.

    Three times the number of folks died in car accidents as compared to gun related homicides.
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    It's scary to think of what gun related crime was 20 years ago. I didn't have a clue.

    And why do you think that is?
