According to Pew Research, most Americans believe crime rates are rising and gun ownership - not gun control - makes people safer. Over the past 25 years or so, there has been a divergence between American perceptions about crime and actual crime rate holding near 20-year lows. Those who worried about crime had favored stricter gun control; now, they tend to desire keeping the laws as they are or loosening gun control.
