(TheRedAlertNews.com) As if there’s any doubt, we now have official evidence as to why Americans are buying guns – both handguns and long guns – in record numbers.
It’s because there is something else that is happening in record numbers.
Yes, what Americans have believed for more than a year is confirmed.
The streets of the United States have grown more deadly, and it’s happening at a record pace.
According to statistics released today by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, homicides in the U.S. ballooned 30% percent from 2019 to 2020. That’s the single, greatest yearly jump on record.
Think about that – the largest jump in murders on record.
What does that mean when it comes to the actual number of murders?
Well, more than 21,000 murders were reported to cops in 2020, according to the Bureau’s Uniform Crime Report released this morning.
And, according to the Gun Violence Archive, the number of homicides committed with a firearm rose by close to 4,000 between 2019 and 2020.
Also, keep in mind, because only 85% of cop shops across the U.S. send their stats to the Feds, it’s better than a safe bet that the number of murders is far more than the 21,000 being reported today.
The FBI’s annual report released Monday made official what most presumed: The United States in 2020 experienced the biggest rise in murder since the start of national recordkeeping 60 years ago.https://t.co/laPTp1RgoP
