FBI’s latest stats say violent crime, gun crimes are DOWN: Why are the Democrats and media lying about it?

Before Democrats became consumed with impeaching President Donald Trump and overturning the results of the 2016 election, they were engaged in pushing other fake ‘emergencies’ and legislative falsehoods.

Like the claim that we need more gun control because gun crime/gun violence is ‘out of control’ and at ‘all-time highs.’

As before, the Donkey Party used mass shootings which were hyped by their propagandists in the establishment media, to ‘prove’ that things like gun bans and confiscations were vital to the safety and security of all Americans.

Republicans and constitutionalists, meanwhile, argued that Democrat claims of rising violence were false fear mongering meant to sway a gullible public. Now, GOP counter-claims have been borne out by actual evidence and hard data from the FBI.

As reported by Ammoland:

The newly-release [sic] FBI Uniform Crime Report for 2018 says violent crime is down overall 3.3 percent from 2017, and the number of reported homicides involving firearms also declined, leading the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms to ask Democrats and the gun prohibition lobby: “What ‘gun violence’ epidemic are you talking about?”

In particular, the FBI notes that last year there were 14,123 murders in the U.S., which is down from 15,129 reported the previous year (2017). In 2018, there were an estimated 10,256 killings involving guns, down from the 10,982 the FBI recorded in 2017.

While any murder using any form of weapon or object is a horrendous thing, in a country of 320 million people with an estimated 80 million-110 million gun owners, that figure is a paltry amount. What’s more, these murders are concentrated in historically high-crime areas like portions of Chicago and other major cities. (Related: As usual, Democrats are using the synagogue shootings to call for…gun control.)

“So, the number of murders has gone down,” CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb noted . “Yet, in order to create the impression that this country is awash in violent crime, gun grabbers routinely combine the number of homicides and suicides, plus accidental deaths and call them all acts of so-called ‘gun violence.’ It is deliberately misleading and downright dishonest. Why are Democrats and the gun prohibition lobby lying about this?”

Democrats will never have an honest discussion about guns — and neither will their propagandist media
