Given what we hear all the time you would think gun crimes were up, but they aren't.

"Despite the remarkable drop in gun crime, only 12% of Americans surveyed said gun crime had declined compared with two decades ago, according to Pew, which surveyed more than 900 adults this spring. Twenty-six percent said it had stayed the same, and 56% thought it had increased."

This is what happens when the news is manipulated.

Yes, given the attention it has been given by the administration, you would think gun crimes were just out of control. And of course the media goes right along with the administration. It would be nice if they would spend some time solving the job issue, improving the economy.

The news is manipulated?

Surprised

Interesting "gun-control" graphic—upon the news that Illinois might join the country in fighting the criminals who illegally carry guns irrespective of the law:

(Green-colored states means having the least "gun-control")



Sorry if this is redundant—you've probably already seen this on your TV set.

No
