Firearms Historical Statistics and Fact

This page is to address the truth about guns... with direct facts about guns... like this one...
"Off-duty police officers commit violent crimes four times more often than concealed-weapons-permit holders."

A stabbing knife blade has ten times the penetrating force of a standard pistol bullet.

About 6,000 children were caught with guns at school in 1997 and 1998. Out of these, the Clinton administration Justice Department only prosecuted 13 of them.

Almost 50% of imprisoned criminals confess that they had been scared off, shot at, wounded or captured by an armed victim.

Almost 95% of imprisoned criminals confess that "armed citizens" scare them the most.

Although 2 out of 3 murders involves a firearm, most criminally-caused deaths still occur from vehicles.  I.E. careless, reckless, or drunk driving.

As of 1998, about 13% of homicides involve knives, 6% are committed with hands and feet, 5% involve bludgeons, and only 1% with "assault weapons."

As of 1998, no law enforcement officer has ever been killed because an armor-piercing bullet defeated a bulletproof vest.

As of 1998, no permit holder has ever shot a police officer. However, there have been several cases in which a permit holder has protected or saved an officer's life.

Doctors accidently caused death approximately 9,000 times more than guns or gun-owners.

Each year, more children die by drowning in two inches of water or less, than by firearms.

Firearms are used more than two million times a year for personal protection.

Florida adopted a right-to-carry law in 1987.  Since then, the homicided rate has dropped 36% and handgun violence rate has droped almost 50%.

If all is calm, at 21 feet you might have a 3" group.  Add stress, 5".  Add you moving, 7".  Add them moving, 9".  Etc…

In 1982, a survey of imprisoned criminals found that 34% of them had been "scared off, shot at, wounded or captured by an armed victim.

In the early/mid 1990's, criminals on parole or early release from prison committed about 5,000 murders, 17,000 rapes, and 200,000 robberies a year.

Nearly 50,000 NRA Instructors and Coaches are conducting firearm safety and proficiency programs that reach nearly 1,000,000 people a year.

Off-duty police officers commit violent crimes four times more often than concealed-weapons-permit holders.

One out of three police officers die because they owned body armor, but were not wearing at the time.

Only 1 out of 11 violent crimes involves a firearm.  Firearms stop violent attacks 100% of the time.

Since England banned all handguns in 1997, England has grown so violent that you're more likely to be assaulted in London, than almost anywhere in the world.

Since England banned all handguns in 1997, the number of police injured by gun-wielding criminals there has almost quadrupled.

Since England banned all handguns in 1997, the number of violent attacks by gun-toting criminals has more than doubled.

The only true way to guarantee a "one-shot-stop" is by the disruption of the central nervous system.

Typically, good performance, no matter what the medium, is 5% equipment and 95% operator.

Vehicles cause 40 times more deaths than firearms.

Washington D.C. enacted a ban ban on handguns in 1976. Between 1976 and 1991, Washington D.C.'s homicide rate rose 200%, while the U.S. rate rose 12%

Washington D.C. removed the ban on handguns (supreme court found unconstitutional) and the crime rate has been droping since.

These are actual facts and statistics gathered from the FBI, National Institute of Justice, Center of Disease Contol,

As a Conservative Republican, I base my decisions on three things.  History - Fact - Logic!  These are actual historical reviews, factual statistics, and logical results.  They can all be verified

I will post their sources as I build this page.  I am still determining a format.
