Harvard Study Finds Repressing Gun Rights Does Not Reduce Violence
Even Ivy League eggheads have figured out that restricting gun rights does not reduce violent crime:
A Harvard Study titled “Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?” looks at figures for “intentional deaths” throughout continental Europe and juxtaposes them with the U.S. to show that more gun control does not necessarily lead to lower death rates or violent crime.
Because the findings so clearly demonstrate that more gun laws may in fact increase death rates, the study says that “the mantra that more guns mean more deaths and that fewer guns, therefore, mean fewer deaths” is wrong.
By some remarkable coincidence, Norway “has far and away Western Europe’s highest household gun ownership rate (32%), but also its lowest murder rate.”
The murder rate in Russia, where handguns are banned, is 30.6; the rate in the U.S. is 7.8.
support the contention that among the nations studied, those with more gun control tend toward higher death rates.
Just like John Lott has been telling us for years.
Next Harvard should do a study on what motivates liberal authoritarians to want us disarmed, since it obviously isn’t concern for our safety.
When liberals look at the poor, first and foremost, they see people who will vote for them in exchange for goodies. This gives liberals a perverse incentive to keep as...Read More
