Last year, the small arms survey concluded that the United States has Fewer people willing to start a fight when everyone is armed? No correlation at all? Interestingly, this turned out to be true not just for the twenty-six developed countries analyzed, but on a State-to-State level too.
By Aaron Bandler July 28, The Left is incessantly attempting to figure out new ways to take guns from law-abiding American citizens in the name of reducing gun crime.
However, the facts clearly show that gun control only exacerbates violent crime. Here are seven facts proving this.
As The Daily Wire has previously explained: Those who already owned guns were allowed to keep them only if they were disassembled or trigger-locked.
Trigger locks could only be removed if the owner received permission from the D. According to prosecutor Jeffrey Shapiro, the results were not good.
Annual homicides rose from in to inand then increased even further to in The gun ban was struck down by the Supreme Court in District of Columbia v. Heller, and homicides have steadily declined since then to 88 yearly murders in While Shapiro admits that there were other factors involved with the decline in homicides, lifting the gun ban clearly did not result in a rise in murders.
The gun bans in Australia and Britain also didn't work. Australia and Britain are both hailed by the Left as evidence that gun control works. However, the facts tell a different story. Two studies — a British Journal of Criminology study and a University of Melbourne study — concluded that Australia's temporary gun ban had no effect on the gun homicide rate.
This suggests that crime has been falling for other reasons. However, there has only been one year where the homicide rate was lower than it was pre-ban: A closer look at the actual facts show that the Left's favorite examples of Britain and Australia are actually examples of how gun control doesn't work.
The vast majority of mass shootings occur in gun-free zones. The Crime Research Prevention Center determined that sincenearly 99 percent of mass public shootings have occurred in gun-free zones.
The terror attack in Orlando, FL and the shooting that murdered singer Christina Grimmie in June also took place in gun-free zones. The reason is obvious: As Lott points out, there are million people in America but onlypolice officers, so it's impossible for the police to protect everybody.
That's why it's prudent for citizens to arm themselves. According to Lottthere is a clear correlation between higher firearm ownership and reducing police killings. The conclusion he came to was that there is a 3. Naturally, the inverse was also true: Lott found that "from tothe six states plus the District of Columbia that banned open carry actually experienced higher rates of police death In light of the recent murders of cops, it has become even more important to have an armed citizenry.
There is also a correlation between fewer mass public shootings and higher gun ownership. According to Lott and the University of Chicago's Bill Landesbetween and "right-to-carry laws reduced both the frequency and the severity of mass public shootings; and to the extent to which mass shootings still occurred, they took place in those tiny areas in the states where permitted concealed handguns were not allowed.
As the number of guns per person has increased, gun violence has declined. This is according to the Centers for Disease Controlwhich found that gun ownership increased by 56 percent, and yet gun violence declined by almost 50 percent between and If the premise of gun control zealots were correct, then wouldn't gun violence have increased during that period of time?
The number of defensive gun uses are higher than the number of criminal firearm uses. There was a range ofto over 3 million defensive gun uses inaccording to research from the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council published by the CDC.
That same year, there were 11, firearm homicides andnonfatal illegal gun uses, according to the CDC and National Justice Institute, respectively. Even when taking the low end of the defensive gun uses, it's clear that there are more defensive gun uses than criminal gun uses by Americans.Apr 21, · This support for gun control, by the way, is pretty bipartisan: even with controversial stuff like reinstating the assault weapons ban, roughly half of Republicans are in favor, along with a majority of Democrats and Independents.
Lax gun control in one nation can create problems in another Of course, strict gun regulations cannot ensure that the danger of mass shootings or killings has been eliminated.
Norway has strong. people believe that extremely tight gun control laws will eliminate crime, but gun control laws only prevent the 'good guys' from obtaining firearms.
Criminals will always have ways of getting weapons, whether it be from the black market, cross borders, or illegal street sales. My guess is that gun control laws aren't enforced as conscientiously in places where they're strict and yet have increased gun crime rates. Plus, Japan has had these strict gun control laws for a very long time, whereas many other countries have only newly tightened them.
Not only do gun-control organizations need donations, they could also use volunteers to help lead their grassroots efforts. Women Against Gun Violence is asking people to volunteer just a few minutes a week to help them spread their message (it’s as simple as making a call or sending a letter).
