The latest story from National Journalism Center’s
Jessica Stanton helps to fight liberal attacks on the second amendment.

In her Daily
Caller
story,
Stanton reports:

As
gun ownership has increased dramatically, gun-related violent crimes have
gradually decreased over the past six years in the state of Virginia, according
to a new analysis.

She added that:

From
2006 to 2011, the total number of guns purchased in Virginia increased 73 percent,
while the total number of gun-related violent crimes decreased 24 percent over
that period. And when adjusted for population growth, the number of crimes
further decreases to more than 27 percent, with 79 gun-related offenses per
100,000 in 2006 dropping to 57 by 2011.
