Studies found a marked drop in gun-related homicides, down 59 percent, and a dramatic 65 percent drop in the rate of gun-related suicides, in the 10 years after the weapons crackdown.
One word, "Chicago"First, Australia is not the US. Obvious but there it is. Second, all 100%of gun violence is caused by people with guns. Reduce the amount of guns in the general populace and gun violence is reduced. But not violence in general. Violence by other means (clubs, knives and fists) are all on the rise in both Australia and England. Third, study after study in the US has shown that stricter gun laws do not reduce violence. MA remains the most strict New England state and yet it continues to be ranked by the FBI Uniform Crime stats as the most violent of all New England states. Fourth, who gives a crap what the Aussies think?
