Description

When looking at the FBI's Uniform Crime Report data since 1992, one will instantly notice a trend of ALL major crime categories dropping significantly over the last 20 years. This data comes from over 18,000 law enforcement agencies at all levels across the country and is the most consistent crime data the U.S. has. While politicians and other media figures throw out random stats without citing sources (stats that may have been retrieved from partisan think tanks or special interest groups), this data cannot be ignored. The country is actually a lot safer than it was two decades ago and America has consistently seen less crime every year since then. Media jumping all over gun control and our Second Amendment cannot dispute this data. In addition, crime from the UK's crime reports actually show that country's crime is rising, so not having guns apparently isn't doing jack to curb growing crime rates.
