a study from a Quinnipiac University professor has found that bans on assault weapons on the state level had no significant effect on murder rates around the country. And it also found that states with more restrictive concealed weapons laws had higher gun-related murder rates on average than states with less restricted concealed weapons.

Ron Pinciaro, executive director of Connecticut Against Gun Violence, said the problem with the assault-weapons comparison is that it shouldn’t be linked to the overall murder rate.

“Most gun homicides are committed in urban centers and they’re not committed with assault weapons,” he said. “If you were to compare, say, mass shootings in a state before and after an assault weapons ban, you’d get a very different result.”

And before they banned guns their murder rate was lower than it is today. Their rate of murder is increasing at a very high rate as is all violent crime. The UK is now the most violent country in Europe. Who knew?





UK is violent crime capital of Europe


The United Kingdom is the violent crime capital of Europe and has one of the highest rates of violence in the world, worse even than America, according to new research.

"Analysis of figures from the European Commission showed a 77 per cent increase in murders, robberies, assaults and sexual offences in the UK since Labour came to power.

That logic doesn't work.

Switzerland with high gun ownership has a murder rate of only 0.7 per 100,000, even lower than the UK.
here's how an anti gunner like rock head thinks.
Murder only counts when it involves a gun.
