As my father said, statistics lie and liars statistic. I love the American Barrack Channels distorted reporting. Lets have a few facts.
Not that a liberal will ever argue facts...
Here are a few more from a country that banned all guns.
From the Australian government for 2012. Keep in mind that due to population, some numbers are statistically insignificant, others are very significant. Also, the Australian have never had the 2nd amendment
Facts: (rounded numbers)
Murders did actually decrease by under 100 from 1996 to 2010. 1996 - 354. 2010 - 260
Assault is another story. They went up by over 60,000. 1996 - 114,000. 2010 - 171,000
Rape or as they call it sexual assault. 1996 - 15,000 to a high in 2004 of 19,000 and in 2010 it was 17,000
Robbery, including armed robbery was 16,000 in 1996. After the ban it jumped to 26,000 in 2001 and has declined since to 14,000 in 2010.
And lastly kidnappings, always a violent crime. In 1996 there were 478. After the ban they reached a high of 788. In 2010 it was 603
Yeah small population and small numbers but the % increases for that small a population are large.
Again, don't let anyone compare us to other countries. We ARE UNIQUE despite what our current president says or thinks.
