Gun ownership rates and gun control laws still don’t have much bearing on your state’s gun homicide rate
Well, the first question any serious person should ask is what happens when gun control is imposed. The start of a gun cotnrol campaign or the imposition of a gun control law, ANY gun control law at any time: is something like this:
While the details vary with local factors, what o are looking at is the two very sharp increases in homicide and violent crime, the first beginning in 1905 with the transition from no regularly enforced gun laws to more than forty state gun control laws: and the second hump begiinning in 1963 with the entertainment industry’s efforsts to protect profits by banning mail order guns.
All together, we know of 57,789 restrictive gun laws, resulting in 57,69 sharp increases in crime rates. Since we only need twenty without a single success to prove to scientific certainty, there is obviously a link between gun control and high violent crime rates.
Before the 1904 laws approximately one American murder in three was firearms related. That increased to 67% in 1933, the peak of the first surge in vilent cirme, and had fallen to 46% in 1959, and currently stands nationally at 69%; with venues such as Chicago with very restrictive gun laws soaring to as high as 84%. Again, by the numbers, there is sicentific proof there is a link between restrictive gun laws and gun violence.
If so, permissive gun laws such as “must issue” concealed carry weapons laws and repeal of “permission to purchase laws. So look at the chart again. In 1933, economic necessity forcted States and cities to pare law enforcement budgets to the bone. For 30 years an arrest on gun related charges was unusual – and for 30 years violent crime rates fell.
then came gun controls, spurred by constant pressure from the entertainment industry, and violent crime rose for 40 years, peaking in 1992. In that year, a wave of sanity result in the passage of “must issue” concealed carry legisluation.
Crime not only fell, crie mrates “fell off a cliff,” almost coming to a halt when local opposition to “must issue” almost almost stopped progress toward a low crime rate.
And that brings us to the latest gun ban campaign, whose results are shown by the red bars on the right side of the chart. The curve between 2014 and 2016 is almost precisely the same as the curve between 1964 and 1966. The projected 2017 homicide numbers are shown by the gold column at the extreme right.
so again, we have a 50 state and the District of Columbia proof that restrictive gun laws increase violent crime rates: That restrictive gun laws increase the criminal use of firearms: And permissive gun laws reverse that trend.
I frankly do not understand how someone could look at the data withouit asking the three basic questions of any serous research. The proof is easy to obtain, it is out thee, and only needs to be examined to prove gun control is what it has been since 1495.
A series of bloody failures.
Denying that by and leading readers to believe that gun control will not do what it invariably does, drive violence sky high, is a form of gun ban activism for which sould embarrass the Examiners editors.
