Turn on any news today and you will be bombarded with loaded messages telling us that we have far too many guns in this country. We all know that we have far too many gun related deaths. The liberal media would have you believe that we are at some all time high due to the 300 million “dangerous” guns and gun owners. Fortunately, we have facts and statistics that we can rely on.
Yes, the number of total guns in America is rising. The total number of gun related deaths however, is not on that same trend. Since 1993, gun related deaths have dropped drastically. Politicians and media members will continue to use these tragedies as crutches to push their own agendas.
