Harvard Study : Gun Control Doesn’t Work

Because the findings so clearly demonstrate that more gun laws may in fact increase death rates, the study says that “the mantra that more guns mean more deaths and that fewer guns, therefore, mean fewer deaths” is wrong.

For example, when the study shows numbers for Eastern European gun ownership and corresponding murder rates, it is readily apparent that less guns to do not mean less death. In Russia, where the rate of gun ownership is 4,000 per 100,000 inhabitants, the murder rate was 20.52 per 100,000 in 2002. That same year in Finland, where the rater of gun ownership is exceedingly higher–39,000 per 100,000–the murder rate was almost nill, at 1.98 per 100,000.

Looking at Western Europe, the study shows that Norway “has far and away Western Europe’s highest household gun ownership rate (32%), but also its lowest murder rate.”

    So gun presence doesn’t increase murder and suicide rates. The Arctic rowers look and sound depressed but they shouldn’t be. It’s not the first time that an experiment failed to support a hypothesis but accidentally provided data for a different discovery. Maybe there is a Remington sponsored adventure in the lads’ future with a complete arsenal and plenty of ammo in confined quarters.

    Proposed Motto:
    “Pulling together against Gun Control”

    Human rights are not subject to statistics. While I’m not surprised by the study’s finding, I think it important to note that, had the outcome been the opposite, it would signify nothing. We are not to sacrifice our rights because someone abused theirs.
