Violent Crime Drops as
Firearms Ownership Rises
FBI RELEASES PRELIMINARY FIGURES FOR 2010 . . . The FBI today
released its Preliminary Annual Uniform Crime Report for 2010,
showing a decrease of 5.5 percent in the number of violent crimes
brought to its attention in 2010 compared to the previous year.
Violent crime, which includes murder, forcible rape, robbery and
aggravated assault, decreased in all four regions of the country and
in both cities and non-metropolitan areas. For decades, violent crime
in the United States has been dropping. Final figures for 2009 showed
violent crime at its lowest level since 1984. At the same time,
firearms ownership and use has been increasing, putting the lie to
anti-gun organizations' claims that more guns lead to more crime. The
largest surge in firearms sales occurred from late 2008 into 2010,
and, according to an NSSF report, an estimated 34.4 million people
went target shooting in 2009, the largest number ever. Read more.
