The 10,945 firearm homicides in 2014 represented a 40-percent drop from the peak hit in 1993, when there were 18,253 firearm homicides in the country,according to CDC data.
You wouldn't know it from watching television, but there are actually fewer firearm homicides and more firearms than there were back in 1993. Weird, huh? It's almost like guns aren't the problem.
I bet if you took out all the data from large cities in the US, the rest of the country would have a firearm homicide rate similar to New Zealand or something.
