FBI Report Shows Crime Goes Down as Firearms Sales Go Up


In a blow to the anti's argument that guns cause crime, the FBI released a report this past week which showed that crime actually went down as the sales of firearms went up. It is even more interesting to note that in the areas with the highest firearms ownership - the MidWest and South - crime went down even more than in areas with less firearms ownership - the NorthEast. Go figure. However, as Jason Riley at the Wall Street Journal notes, "Not that gun-control zealots, who are so certain of a causal link between firearms and violent crime rates, care about such details."
