    Default Fact check: Guns sales rise and crime falls as the coronavirus spreads in US

    Even USA Today has come to the conclusion that more guns = less crime!

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/fa...us/ar-BB12Wzyz


    The claim: Revenue from gun sales went up while crime declined amid the COVID-19 outbreak in the US

    Our ruling: True

    Crime has significantly declined while the sale of firearms has risen over the past month in the United States. Both trends appear to result from the coronavirus pandemic, which has simultaneously raised the nationís anxiety while emptying its streets. We rate this claim TRUE because it is supported by our research.*

    No one out on the street, less people to get robbed, but Philly shootings seem to be bucking the trend
