18. "gun violence, deaths and injuries, aren't crimes" DOJ's Holder has authority to use FBI's UCR to

 

collect any data even remotely related to "Since these crime statistics are intended to assist law enforcement in identifying the crime problem, participants must record offense counts, not the findings of a court, coroner, or jury or the decision of a prosecutor." http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/additional-ucr-publications/ucr_handbook.pdf

The Administration cannot blame anyone other than itself because it already has authority to collect data.

With data, there are hundreds of PhDs ready to volunteer to cut and dice, twist and turn, that data to prove their creationist belief that guns are the cause of all crimes.

Gun Control Legislation” by CRS (Nov 14, 2012) reports the following.

- from 1994 to 2007, firearm number increased from 192 million to 294 million.

- from 1994 to 2007, Firearms-Related Murder Rate decreased from 6.6 to 3.9.

It will be interesting to see what data can be collected to support a hypothesis that more guns cause more crime.
