Gun homicides, violence down sharply in past 20 years

http://www.cnn.com/2013/05/08/us/stu...html?hpt=hp_t2

Quote:
(CNN) -- Gun-related homicides and crime are "strikingly" down from 20 years ago, despite the American public's belief that firearm crime is on the upswing, a new study said Wednesday.
Looking back 50 years, a Pew Research Center study found U.S. gun homicides rose in the 1960s, gained in the 1970s, peaked in the 1980s and the early 1990s, and then plunged and leveled out the past 20 years.
"Despite national attention to the issue of firearm violence, most Americans are unaware that gun crime is lower today than it was two decades ago," the researchers say.
A Pew survey of Americans in March found 56% believed gun-related crime is higher than 20 years ago and only 12% said it's lower. The survey said 26% believed it stayed the same and 6% didn't know.

The new study found U.S. firearm homicides peaked in 1993 at 7.0 deaths per 100,000 people. But by 2010, the rate was 49% lower, and firearm-related violence -- assaults, robberies, sex crimes -- was 75% lower in 2011 than in 1993, the study found.
Those drops parallel an overall decline in violent non-fatal crime, with or without a gun, the study said.
In fact, gun-related homicide rates in the late 2000s were "equal to those not seen since the early 1960s," the study found.
Explanations for the drops the past 20 years aren't clear, the study said.

My Ride: still a gay 135i
Mother****ing sh!t. I was just masturbating and everything was going great. I was in my room, i had my headphones on, i was totally naked sitting at my computer fapping away to a video on redtube. All of a sudden there's this really sharp pain in my dick, like it just got stabbed with a sewing needle. I jerked my hand back and it bumped into my computer tower, which sits on the desk. Well, i had my stick of deodorant on top of the tower, and that bitch fell off and landed deodorant-end-down on the head of my cock. Holy ****ing sh!t did that hurt, and on top of that it hit so hard that it actually forced some deodorant into my urethra. I've never had anything burn so bad in my entire life. I jumped out of my ****ing chair and stood up because it hurt so bad; this caused my headphone cable to get yanked out of my speakers, which caused "oh yeah baby come deep in my tight teen asshole uh uh uh" to get blared through my ****ing house and almost maximum volume. Now my eyes are watering from the pain of the deodorant inside my cock but i manage to punch one of my speakers hard enough so they turn off. I looked down and noticed blood dripping off of my cock.

I guess the lip of the plastic deodorant thing bit into my foreskin as it connected with my cock. The blood was dripping down my leg. This all happened in the space of maybe 6 seconds. It may seem bad but it gets worse. Just as i'm standing there trying to figure out what the **** happened, my bedroom door ****ing opens. My dad was standing there with my acceptance letter to johns hopkins. I froze and he stared at me, naked with my bloody erection for maybe 15 seconds before he noticed my computer monitor and the brutal anal sex scene going on full-screen. He immediately closed the door and left without saying anything. This may seem embarrassing but my dad is a seriously conservative christian. This happened about 15 minutes ago and he hasn't said anything to me yet. I'm still in my room trying to get the god damn ****ing old spice out of my cock. What should i do?

Gun homicides, violence down sharply in past 20 years

Gun crime only went down because we banned the thing that went up.

All homicides are down, it's not specific to guns.

It's not just gun homicides that are down, it's all gun crime. In fact, incidents of non-homicidal crime involving firearms dropped more significantly than homicides.

It's just a coincidence that it went down immediately after Clinton's 1994 assault rifle ban.

Misleading. There was no increase in firearm related crime after the ban's sunset in 2004. If your implication was correct then we would have seen a rise in firearm related crimes after "assault" weapons were once again available for purchase. Nice try, though.

What implication? Clinton instituted an assault rifle ban and the numbers fell every year after that.

It's a fact.
