1997 was right in the middle of the assault weapons ban that banned ar15s and 30 round magazines. Since we unbanned the ar15 and 30 round magazines crime rate with guns has dropped by over 50 percent
There is 300,000 crimes commited with guns every year, that sounds like a lot until you realize there is more than 500,000 to 3 million violent crimes prevented with firearms every year in America. Guns are used to save lives way more than they are to take them.
People say Australia banned guns and now they have much less gun crime. There gun crimes were falling in an identical rate before the gun ban even occured and the 1996 gun banprogram has not translated into any tangible reductions in terms of firearm deaths.. Also, only 1/3rd of people turned in there guns meaning there is 2/3rds of gun ownership is in the hands of criminals. This shows gun buyback programs and banning only disarms the good guy while the criminals stay armed to the teeth. That sounds like a terrible idea to me. This is also why Australia still has gun murders as much as they did in the past before the ban, the only difference now is people are less prepared to deal with that threat because many had been disarmed.
Should we ban guns from the mentally ill?
"The vast majority of people with mental health problems are no more likely to be violent than anyone else. Most people with mental illness are not violent and only 3%–5% of violent acts can be attributed to individuals living with a serious mental illness. In fact, people with severe mental illnesses are over 10 times more likely to be victims of violent crime than the general population." So no banning guns from people with ADHD, bipolar, depression, and most mental illnesses won't make a difference you'd just be removing constitutionial rights from innocent people who should have the right to self defense, especially because they are attacked more than normal individuals.
The average number of people killed in mass shootings when stopped by police is 14.29
The average number of people killed in a mass shooting when stopped by a civilian is 2.33
People like to say there is 91 "gun violence" deaths a day in America. Most of that is suicides. You cut out the suicides you are only left with 32 gun homicides a day in America. Gun homicides doesn't mean murder, it just means someones died with a firearm. This number includes self defense cases. You remove the self defense cases you are left with the ACTUAL gun murders, there is 10 gun murders a day in America. Compare that to abortions which killed 1,700 people a day in 2014. Or smoking that kills 1,300 a day.
All rifles combined kill fewer people each year than knives..
Also handguns are used in crime way more than rifles are.
