    Graphs Clearly Depict Artificially High But Temporary Gun Sales Now In Decline

    Why slowing US gun sales arenít good news for gun-control advocates

    "...background checks by the governmentís National Instant Criminal Background Check Systems (NICS) declined by 12% during the quarter, another sign that sales have slowed."

    Naturally, in the midst of massive increases of firearms throughout the U.S. population, combined with the relaxation of gun control laws, we're obviously awash in unbridled crime, right?

    Quite the opposite. Crime is at an all-time low.

    Mass-shootings have risen, but as the vast majority of them were on psychotropic drugs, evidence suggests that's the cause.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    Actually, no. Sudden mass murders remain steady at about 36 per year.

    And on and on and on and ....

    What's increased is the reporting on a broader level - almost everything now gets national the-streets-are-running-with-blood coverage.
