WASHINGTON
The number of law-enforcement officers killed by firearms in 2013 fell to levels not seen since the days of the Wild West, according to a report released Monday.

The annual report from the nonprofit National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund also found that deaths in the line of duty generally fell by 8 percent and were the fewest since 1959. According to the report, 111 federal, state, local, tribal and territorial officers were killed in the line of duty nationwide this past year, compared to 121 in 2012. Forty-six officers were killed in traffic related accidents, and 33 were killed by firearms. The number of firearms deaths fell 33 percent in 2013 and was the lowest since 1887.

This is proof that owning firearms across the country, has visibly reduced violent deaths of not only police but citizens in a consistent way that has not been observed since the earliest days.

It serves as evidence against the propagandists who insist that every state should be highly regulated. And also nullifies anti gun advocates, groups and unions.
