Lousy shooters, great paramedics... don't mean you're safer...
However much crime in general may have dipped, shootings have not.**********
So far this year, the number of occurrences is up by 33 per cent compared to the same date in 2011; the number of people killed or injured has risen by 42 per cent; and – perhaps most striking – the number of reported instances in which guns were fired without anyone being hit has increased by 67 per cent.
