Yes, Crime Is Down . . . But For How Long?

NRA-ILA | Stemming the Tide: Violent Crime Decreased in First Six Months of  2017

My opinion?  That’s good news.  It debunks any theories that economic recessions leads to increased crime rates.  I, for one, haven’t seen a dramatic increase in crime – except for maybe low-level street drugs like heroin – since the recession hit.  Still despite the successful efforts of law enforcement’s endeavors, we should not be too quick to pat ourselves on the back.
