Video gives data on gun crime that media is ignoring

xd40A video posted by Amidst the Noise provides data on gun crime that the Democrat-media complex is keeping from the American public.

Becket Adams reports at The Blaze:

Following the tragedy of the Newtown, Conn., shooting that left 26 people dead, including 20 children, there has been a lot of talk about increased gun control.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has reintroduced an expired “assault” weapons ban in the Senate, British CNN host Piers Morgan has made it his full-time job educating Americans on the dangers of firearms, and left-leaning filmmaker Michael Moore has pleaded with “frightened,” gun-loving Americans to resolve their “race” problems.

But here’s the thing: There are many facts and figures regarding violent crime in U.S. that have been left out of the debate on gun control. In fact, the data you’re not hearing about could make all the difference.

But the video, entitled, “Choose Your Own Crime Stats,” tackles this information, and as Becket writes, could make the difference in the gun debate.

The narrator, for example, says that one can pinpoint where most of the crime is taking place,  but nobody wants to hear that part of the issue.

According to Becket, some of the points made in the video include:

  • Between 1992 and 2011, the violent crime rate in the U.S. has fallen by almost 50 percent (from 757.7 per 100,000 to 386.3 per 100,000).
  • The murder rate in 2011 rate was 4.7 per 100,000, down from 1992’s 9.3 per 100,000. That’s a 54 percent decrease.
  • In metropolitan areas where the population is greater than 250,000, the violent crime rate is double that of the national average.
  • In metropolitan areas where the population is greater than 250,000, the murder rate is double that of the national average.

Watch the video, then ask yourself if the media is being honest about the issue, or are they simply pushing an anti-gun, anti-freedom agenda.
