Source: FBI Uniform Crime Reports 1991 to 2011.

1991 was the peak for total numbers of homicides in the US at 24,700.
1980 was the peak for homicides per 100k people in the US with 10.2/100k.

Current Per 100k as of 2011: 4.7
Less than half of the peak in 1980 and the lowest since 1963. As a matter of fact, it's lower than when the Gun Control Act of 1968 was enacted.

1992 was when people started putting up "No Gun Allowed" signs. That is the sole purpose behind the decrease in homicides per 100k.

...because a shooter will not start firing on other people in a public place, if you put up a sign that says not to do so.

Unfortunately, people completely ignore that point in an argument.

Just like how the drug free zones magically repel them. It's sorcery, I swear.
