You read it right again. According to a more recent study by Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, which cites the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the U.S National Academy of Sciences and the United Nations International Study on Firearms Regulation, the more guns a nation has, the less criminal activity.
The study came from the Harvard Journal of Law, that bastion of extreme, Ivy League liberalism. Titled Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?, the report “found some surprising things.”
It concludes the virtually unpublicized research report by attorney Don B. Kates and Dr. Gary Mauser. But the key is firearms in the hands of private citizens.
Take a look at Russian for example, today violence in Russian is far worse than in the U.S. In the motherland, it’s still really hard for the average Russian to get a concealed carry permit or license, if you didn’t know Russians can now carry guns for self-defense. But in Western Europe things are far worse, with more lone wolf muslim terrorist attacks in France and Belgium are a daily norm these days.
The liberal politicians and the main stream media love to count suicides, gang on gang shootings and police shooting bad guys to pile up their numbers on gun related death.
They also failed to compare per capita, it’s not as simple as country vs country. Compare the population and land size of the UK vs the U.S. That’s a huge difference isn’t it?
Why not compare all of Europe to match the size of the U.S? That will be apples to apples and a fair comparison. Because if compared in such way, Europe murder rate and gun crime will probably be much higher than the U.S and won’t fit their anti-gun agenda.
