Is it getting safer in America?

The media and those that control the newspapers, radio and television would have you believe that the environment is getting more dangerous all the time.  They seem to make money from our fear.  It is like a bad Science Fiction movie where the alien monster thrives on fear of others.  If one surveyed people in North America about guns and if things were getting worse or better I’m pretty certain that most would vote that things are getting more dangerous.  Well, if you look at the actual statistics on gun violence put out by the Bureau of Justice Statistics you will see that this is not true. The actual fact is that there is less gun violence that there was 20 years ago.  Things may even be getting better:)
