Lots of left-wing narratives are getting murdered today.
But you know what’s not getting murdered? People.
At least not as many people as were murdered in the early 1990s — specifically by guns.
According to a CDC report, firearm-related homicides in the United States stood at 3.43 per 100,000 people in 2014. That’s down significantly from 6.6 per 100,000 in 1993.
And what happened during that 21-year period to cause the gun-related homicide rate to get cut almost in half?
Well, not gun control. That’s for sure.
In the early 1990s, there were 192 million privately owned guns in America. Now, there’s far north of 300 million.
So even as gun ownership increased, gun-related homicides decreased.
