Default MSNBC SHOCKER: Gun deaths fall as restrictions do

Record numbers now licensed to pack heat - Life- msnbc.com

Quote:
In the 1980s and ’90s, as the concealed-carry movement gained steam, Americans were killed by others with guns at the rate of about 5.66 per 100,000 population. In this decade, the rate has fallen to just over 4.07 per 100,000, a 28 percent drop. The decline follows a fivefold increase in the number of “shall-issue” and unrestricted concealed-carry states from 1986 to 2006.

Hard to believe MSNBC couldn't spin this away from consealed carry and use it to bolster Obabma's image.

Frankly, I'm shocked at the straight forward, truthful reporting of this trend by MSNBC!!

For the record the numbers are still skewed.
Homicide includes all homicide: by civilian, by police, justified and murder.
