Oops…freedom to own and bear arms is working. Guess Obummer needs to get busy and STOP THIS TRAVESTY. The poor criminals have a right to make a living too ya know. Click link for entire must read article. The charts are amazing.

Pajamas Media » FBI Crime Stats Show an Armed Public Is a Safer Public:

“Data from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation show that America has been on a firearms buying spree since the end of 2005. Meanwhile, the FBI recently released preliminary 2009 crime data indicating that violent crime has been dropping at an accelerating rate since the end of 2006.”

The article has one chart that shows “after gun sales attained record growth in 2006, violent crime rates began to fall in 2007. As gun sales continued to register records each following year, violent crime rates decreased at an accelerating rate.”

Another chart shows that, “like overall violent crime, after gun sales began to peak in 2006, the murder rate declined at an accelerating pace beginning in 2007, going from -0.7% to -3.9% in 2008, to -7.2% in 2009.”

Of course the lefties would never consider that gun ownership could be a deterrant to crime. They would rather believe the thugs are getting “nicer” or “the Gubmint” is providing better services for the poor souls forced into crime for survival’s sake.

Reminds me of a quote by Jeff Snyder concerning guns.

“But to ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the innocent and law-abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless, and that the law will permit them to have only such rights and liberties as the lawless will allow. … For society does not control crime, ever, by forcing the law-abiding to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of criminals. Society controls crime by forcing the criminals to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of the law-abiding.”
