Even though nearly 6-in-10 Americans believe that gun crime has increased in the last twenty years, in actuality, it has drastically declined, 49%, since the early 1990s. While total firearm deaths decreased by nearly 8000 between 1993 and 2010, over 90% of this change can be attributed to the drop in gun-homicides. Gun-suicides have outpaced gun-homicides since 1981.
