More TV Police Shows Bias on Guns: Yet CBS’s Blue Bloods shows more criminals using machine guns

Jun 26, 2024 | Media Bias

In real life, criminals generally use machine guns so rarely that a 2016 survey of prison inmates only broke down the numbers for uses in crime of handguns (11.2%), rifles (0.8%), and shotguns (1.1%). There are few rifles, and the survey did not mention fully automatic weapons. A similar finding is available from the FBI UCR report, where 2.6% of all murders involve rifles of any type, and 0.3% of all murders involve unspecified “other guns.” There is a reason for that. Since 1934, there was only one possible known use of a civilian using a machine gun in a murder. And even before 1934, they were very rare.

This episode of CBS’ Blue Bloods shows criminals using machine guns to try murdering an informant (Season 14, Episode 7, April 27, 2024).
