CNN Runs Segment Proving Gun Violence is Down

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Gun Violence is actually down dramatically in recent years, and the data on mass shootings seems to show that occurrences have remained remarkably stable over the 30 or so years.

I'm sure the administration and the media are working hard to make sure that perceptions don't match reality...
