https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/10/01/report-violent-crime-rate-2018-lowest-since-1971/

Statistics drawn from the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Program show that the violent crime rate in 2018 hit its lowest level since 1971.

FBI crime stats show the “estimated rate of violent crime was 368.9 offenses per 100,000 inhabitants.” That is a 3.9 percent reduction in the rate when compared with 2017 stats, but the real lesson emerges when we look long term.

For example, Bearing Arms reports that the 2018 rate of violent crime was barely above the 1971 rate of 396 offenses per 100,000 inhabitants.

Ironically, one of the greatest differences between 1971 and 2018 is that there are exponentially more privately-owned firearms now than there were when the 1970s began. Rather than leading to more violent crime, as the left would suggest, the existence of millions of millions more privately-owned guns correlated with a lower rate of violent crime.

On December 4, 2013, Breitbart News reported a Congressional Research Service report showing the number of privately-owned guns jumped from 192 million firearms in 1994 to 310 million in 2009. The study showed that the “firearm-related murder and non-negligent homicide” fell sharply as the number of guns in private hands expanded.

Don't worry, the left will use that data against gun owners. When there is little crime their reasoning is you don't need to guns because there is little crime. When there is a lot of crime it's OMG we need to get rid of the guns, it's causing all this crime.

If you listen to the news, US street are awash in blood due to our right to bear arms.
Truth is violent crimes exists mostly in the Liberal run big cities.
Chicago, Baltimore come to mind.
If you took the big lib cities out of the equation, America would be the safest country in the world and full of sunshine and unicorns.

A year or two i was looking at a bunch of crime/murder stats. just doing a little math if you took the 10 cities with the most murders and removed them from our nation wide stats you would cut our murder for the entire country almost by 1/3.
