Re: Rise in handgun crime
"REPORTED Gun Crime rose in real terms from the mid-90s through to 2003/4."
Kids are _statistically_ safer than they've ever been.
Domestic violence levels are _statistically_(*) lower than they've ever been.
Yet reporting levels are higher than ever. This is down to both awareness and increased unwillingness to simply write things off.
(*) That's based on assessed injuries at A&E departments.
