Given below are the stats for “illegal homicides” in the U.S. from 1995 through 2010 taken directly from the 2012 United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) report. Note that the rate has dropped by 40% over that fifteen year span. How can that be? With all these crazies running around shooting and killing people? Wonder where I can find the stats on bullet-proof vest sales. That must be the answer.
