Department of Justice firearms report 93-11

In 2013 the DoJ released this report of firearms and violence.  I don’t recall how much press it received at the time of release.  I don’t recall much.  I suppose with the push for more gun control the press decided it wasn’t that important.  Was it?  Granted it’s a government report and I question anything from the big G. 

But it is interesting.  Take a look and make up your own mind.  Remember these numbers when the DoJ makes gun related statements.

The two biggest threats to the US are an oversized government and a press that is more interested in sensationalism and profits than facts.  The real news is tough to find regardless of your politics.

  1. I’d like to see the police unit’s SWAT team fatalities in their ‘intervention’ operations. As well as compare it to the wrong address fatalities on both sides.

    Because if the civilian population fatalities are falling, it won’t be any good if the slack is taken up elsewhere.

  2. I would bet the numbers wouldn’t be good. The militarization of the police is definitely going too far. Simple arrests are turning into full blown firefights with only one side shooting.
