"But don’t let clever politicians prey on your emotions. In the past two decades, violent crime in America has actually decreased dramatically. Pew Research Center reports, compared with 1993, the peak of U.S. gun homicides, the firearm homicide rate was 49 percent lower in 2010, and there were fewer deaths, even though the nation’s population grew. The victimization rate for other violent crimes with a firearm—assaults, robberies and sex crimes—was 75 percent lower in 2011 than in 1993. Violent non-fatal crime victimization overall (with or without a firearm) also is down markedly (72 percent) over two decades."
