Bloomberg’s Gun Theft Lie Sweeping The U.S.

Well, there are an even dozen search hits for Bloomberg’s lie of the week, that gun theft is sweeping the country.

Since gun owners are well aware that the chances of getting a stolen gun back are beyond minuscule, ATF trace numbers are wildly misleading. The only reliable sources of data on gun theft are is the Bureau of Justice Statistics Criminal Victimization Surveys.

Looking over the actual data, it is clear that gun theft has been declining for over 30 years. While the 201516 CVS ends that series for the time being, all indications are that gun theft continues its long term decline.

Further, parsing the data results in a clear finding that increases in American violent crime rates aaaaare those initaited by the gun ban lobbies themselves. Crime rates in States such as Oregon Nevada, and other States where the gun ban lobbies have been working hard show sharp increases in violent crime; while states spared the Banners “Outhouse honey” have generally shown continuing declines.

Down here in the Deep South, if we were much further south we would live in the Gulf of Mexico, the general description of those inventive souls who think up lies like that is a “story.”

And ranking that story alongside other likes shows just what a whopper it is. Few greater lies have seen pring – including FNHA’s “Russian Dossier” tale that started a 15 month witch hunt that is still going on.

The good laddies of the South have another expression reserved for those who have done something reprehensible or are too dumb to breathe through their nose the way the Good Lord intended; “Bless their heart.” That can be expnded to indicate a more than common state of sinfulness or stupidity.

So while I cannot greatly condemn the paid propagandists of the gun ban lobby, I can express my disapproval of the sad state of the American media, which cannot bother to fact check a lie. Bless their hearts.

Particularly Bloomberg’s which has evidently shriveled to the size of an appl3e seed.

    Do you have access to the CVS firearms theft numbers?
    I found a report that shows them in graphical form from 1994-2010, but nothing after that.

    Once again, figures don’t lie, but liars figure. They headline 227% increase (sounds very precise, doesn’t it?), but leave it to the reader to figure out from the charts that that works out to about 4500 more guns stolen and the fact that they are only talking about guns stolen from dealers is even less highlighted. Admittedly, 4500 more guns in the underworld is not a good thing, but how many total guns are stolen each year and is this a big part of it? Have you seen the feature available on Netflix on “Ghost Guns”. Actually while it does talk about true Ghost Guns (actually made overseas) it also talks about trafficking in stolen guns as well. I’d be very interested in hearing your opinion.

    And I don’t think the ATF can’t figure out why thieves are targeting gun stores. As I think it was Willie Sutton who said, when asked why he robbed banks “Because that’s where the money is.”

    Hi Dean: Thanks for the reminder,,, and the query. It has been a long time since I heard from you.

    The criminal victimization files are public property in the public domain. Generally speaking, changing the year number in this website will give you anything that is available.

    There are a bunch of CVS files, and not all of them are still on the net. The easiest way to direct you is to tell you to go to and do a search for “victimization.”

    You will get a list of everything that is available. I bokmark the index page in a ssseparate folder, and then each individual year in the same folder. That saves time, and makes it faster to change years.



    The actual CVS is a pdf, and is marked as such. They also offer tables in ASCII and other things that have nothing valuable to us.

    Hi Knuckles, I am glad to hear from you.

    This pack of falsifiers don’t even bother to figure, they just ignore the facts until they are forced to change tune. When that happens, they go back to the tales they were telling one or two gun ban cycles in the past.

    I guess PR jobs are hard to get, because I would be ashamed to show my face after the actual crime data comes out.
