Historically, someone will see a sitiaton and decide there should be a law against it. So the law gets passed, and the situatin gets worse. Much worse. Since it is unthinkable that His Royal Highness and Smartest Man In The Universe was wroing, the next step is to tighten th elaw, see the situaiton continue to worsen, tighten the law, and so on.
That is the situation the United States was beginning in 1967 and continuing through 1992. Politicians afraid of being assassinated insisted on very restrictive gun laws, and homicide and violent crime rates went sky high:
When we began sending politicians who had their ego and terrors tied up in restrictive gun laws home, both homicide and violent crime rates plummeted. When the fearful Freddies realized we might get an end to all the restrictive gun laws and started fighting us tooth and nail, the rate of decline slowed dramatically.
When we began softening or repealing our restrictive gun laws the United States violent crime and murder rates were somewhat higher than most of the industrialized European nations. This chart tells compares the results of Germany and other European Nations tightening gun laws, compared to the United STates loosening gun laws:
So, Germany having invited a million or so unattached males between 21 and 35 who say they intend to conquer Europe, Germany suddenly discovered they have very restrictive gun laws, a sky high crime rate, and a situation so grave the German government must hide the identity of those who commit or attempt to commit mass murder.
So those responsible for the problem are going to fix it.
Yessir, they are going to fix the problem they caused the way bureaucrats and other idiots always seem to clean up the messes they make. How do bureaucrats and other idiots fix the problems they cause?
With more of the same, of course. So Germany,, which already sky high crime rates as a result of restrictive gun laws, is going to further restrict LAWFUL gun ownership.
This chart is a bit behind, since I do not expect the latest FBI Uniform Crime Report data until October. But the information I have indicates the disparity between the Deutche and American crime rates is grater that nits:
German crime statistics from the BundesKriminallAmt.
U.S. crime statistics are from the FBI Uniform Crime Report for 2014.
so how will this work ouit? Tightening Germany’s gun laws will do what such laws always do, clear the way for criminal violence since even the few remaining guns will become useless for self defense. As a result, I expect the five year result to be a 100 percent increase in violent crime and murder rates.
But of course, the bureaucrats are never wrong. Five years from now, if Germany still exists, tightening gun laws will have saved millions and billions of lives. No matter that there will be 14,000 or more rimes for every 100,000 Germans.
