FBI Report: Gun Murders Fall in the U.S.

The Free Beacon reported that gun murders are falling [1] in the U.S., contrary to liberal myths:

A report published by the FBI on Monday shows that gun murders and other violent crimes continued to fall in 2014.

The FBI Crime in the United States report [2] found 8,124 murders committed with firearms in 2014, down from 8,454 in 2013. That represents a 3.9 percent drop year over year and the lowest rate of any year included in the report.

The report found that, as in previous years, the vast majority of gun murders were committed with handguns, but all categories of gun murders declined.
