Why Obama Hides Good News on GunsJanuary 29, 2013 @ 12:21 pm
Rates of violent crime, however, continued their long decline, reduced by 13 percent since the last year of President Bush. In the last 20 years, the murder rate has been cut in half, but President Obama won't acknowledge this good news because it undermines his efforts to alarm the public about a non-existent surge in gun violence, justifying meddlesome restrictions on law-abiding firearms owners.
It's understandable that the president ignores the bad news from his first term, but it's outrageous that he won't acknowledge the dramatic successes in stopping crime.
