While the Left tries to exploit the Sandy Hook shootings as an excuse for more gun control, the simple truth is that more guns in civilian hands have been accompanied by a drop in violent crime.

USA Today notes it's a long trend:
The number of federally required background checks of prospective gun purchasers has nearly doubled in the past decade — a time when violent crime has been in long decline in many places across the USA, according to FBI records.
Prior to the Connecticut shootings, 2012 was already a record breaker for gun sales. As of last week, USA Today reported there had been 16.8 million background checks run in 2012. I have to wonder how many tens of thousands more have been run since Friday.
