Violent crime hit an all-time high in 1991. Since then, gun control laws have been eliminated or made less restrictive at the federal, state, and local levels; the numbers of privately-owned guns, gun owners, and Right-to-Carry states have risen to all-time highs; and violent crime has dropped 38%. Among the four categories of violent crime, murder has dropped 42%, rape 27%, robbery 45%, and aggravated assault 34%.
Perhaps, if I am very lucky, the feeble efforts of my lifetime will someday be noticed, and maybe, in some small way, they will be acknowledged as the greatest works of genius ever created by Man.
