Re: MASSIVE Elementary School Shooting in CT *12-24 Maybe be dead

For example in 1990 there where 2260 murders in NYC compared with 515 in 2011.

Now of course it isn't broken down into number of murders commited with a firearm, but there is a clear trend over the last 21 years. So if NYC's tighter gun laws where enacted after 1990 the data would tend to indicate a fall. True other crimes are also down over the same period. And there might be other factors which affect the figures.
