Report: Number of Gun Crimes Down

Handgun 001(AP) – Two new reports will add fuel to the battle in Congress over whether to tighten restrictions on firearms. The reports show that gun homicides have dropped steeply in the United States since 1993. Both reports also found that the rate of non-fatal crimes involving guns was also down by around 70 percent over that time. One report is from the Justice Department, while the other is from the Pew Research Center.
