Gotta love this but you won't hear this on any of the major "Lamestream" media outlets simply because it doesn't fit the "agenda"!!

Gun deaths and injuries have dropped sharply in California, even as the number of guns sold in the state has risen, according to new state data.

Dealers sold 600,000 guns in California last year, up from 350,000 in 2002, according to records of sale tallied by the California Attorney General's office.

During that same period, the number of California hospitalizations due to gun injuries declined from about 4,000 annually to 2,800, a roughly 25 percent drop, according to hospital records collected by the California Department of Public Health.

Firearm-related deaths fell from about 3,200 annually to about 2,800, an 11 percent drop, state health figures show.

Most of the drop in firearm-related injuries and deaths can be explained by a well-documented, nationwide drop in violent crime.

The number of California injuries and deaths attributed to accidental discharge of firearms also has fallen. The number of suicide deaths involving firearms has remained roughly constant.

Two caveats: State figures track gun sales, not ownership. They treat a family's first gun purchase the same as a collector's twelfth. Second, gun sales in California peaked in the early 1990s, as violent crime also peaked.

These charts show gun injuries, deaths and sales trends over the last ten years.


Charts are on the above listed website if you want to look at those.

One can answer the other but it also looks like They are trying to say the reason for the drops in deaths is because of the nation wide drop in violent crimes not because there are more guns sold. #-o So they think everyone in the nation is finding brotherly love and not being criminals and not that the criminals are smart enough to rob a armed person. :-k =;

And violent crime may be down nation wide because of the INCREASE in firearms sales! :-k

This year there has been almost 17 MILLION background checks done here in the USA through the end of November 2012 with only a little over 980,000 of those being denied.

And the background checks do not list how many guns were actually bought, only that the check was done.

I know for a fact that here in Virginia that a local guy bought 3 guns in one day, all on that single background check and I've also purchased 2 on a single background check.

I've seen estimates that there's over 300 MILLION guns here in the States. I'd bet a "C" note that it's way more than that, and possibly double that number!
