Over Half Of All Murders Occur In Just 2% Of American Counties

NGN: Being a gun owner in 2019 means your beliefs about the Second Amendment, home defense, and protecting yourself and your loved ones are constantly under attack by lawmakers and those on the left.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you know that part of the gun control crowd’s agenda is to spread fear about guns and make gun owners out to be something they are not.

The picture the left paints about guns in America is wrong. The gun the left fears the most, the AR-15 rifle, does not kill as many people as pistols. Hammers kill more people than guns. The fact that this stat is not more well-known proves the left does not care about saving lives, rather it cares only for the ability of the government to restrict citizens Second Amendment rights.

A Crime Prevention research study shows us another little known fact about murders and guns. The study points out that just 2% of American counties produce 51% of the murders in this country.

Data from 2014, the most recent year that a county level breakdown is available, shows us that 54% of counties (containing 11% of the population) had zero murders. 69% of counties had no more than one murder, and held about 20% of the population. These counties account for only 4% of all murders in the country.

The worst 1% of counties have 19% of the population and 37% of the murders. The worst 5% of counties contain 47% of the population and account for 68% of murders. The study shows more than half of all murders occurred in just 2% of counties nationwide.

Similarly, Don McDougall, the author of the Ammoland article “Gun Crime is a Made-Up Word from the Anti-Gun World” writes, “If not for gangs and drugs, the number of murders by guns is below 1,700 in a county of 330,000,000 people. Remove the gangs and drugs, and the US is one of the SAFEST countries in the world.” read more

  3. I suppose I could do the research but I’ll let someone else do it. It would be interesting to know the crime rates of the counties that Trump won vs the crime rates of the counties that killary won.

  4. If they are going to jam us all into high rise cities in their utopia, they have to take the guns first.

  5. Hey Joe 6, why not just guess the outcome, like the media does?
    The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago, Haiti, Santo Domingo, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Newark,
    Portland, New Orleans, etc. all are demorat habitats. So what’s the problem?

  6. someone needs to run a comparison between the murder rates in the counties that Trump won vs. the counties that the Hildabeast won

  7. Moan Lobe. What you ask for is well known. The scumbag media just won’t tell America. Remember when Fredo Cuomo told us on National Television that it is illegal for “you the people” to read Hillary Clinton’s emails, should you get hold of them. But it is legal for us in the media to read them and let “You the people” know what we feel you need to know. Remember that? He said it on his program.
    Time for these scumbags to be put down like rabid dogs.
    But what really baffles me is why the fuck did President Trump entertain that little pipsqueek stepomopolis (?) Why?

  8. The counties are pointed out but how about the ethnic background of those doing the majority of killings. Another statistic that’ll never be mentioned by the left.
