Well, that’s what the Liberal/Progressives would have you believe, anyway. But the rest of us — those of us “grown-ups” living in this real world — we know better, which is why I doubt few if any of us will be surprised by this story:
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 real world tells us what we conservatives have always known: guns do not cause violence, people cause violence. In other words: the “grown-ups” were right — again, and the Liberal/Progressives were wrong — AGAIN! Still, the question remains: will the Left EVER grow up?
“If you’re not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you’re not a conservative at forty you have no brain.”
