The National Shooting Sport Foundation (NSSF) released an infographic that depicts the significant drop in gun crimes even as guns to market have increased significantly. Since the early 90s:
- Homicide with firearms are down 43%
- Other crimes with firearms are down 70%
- Unintentional firearms fatalities are down 60%
None of these are population adjusted, meaning that the rate of these incidents has dropped even further. To see the original infographic and the sources used, click the image or visit the NSSF Blog at http://www.nssfblog.com/nssf-infographic-gun-sales-up-crime-rates-down/.
