Gary A. Mauser has published a study showing the effect that restrictive gun laws have had in Britain, Australia, and Canada. He says that ” . . . violent crime rates, and homicide rates in particular, have been falling in the United States. The drop in the American crime rate is even more impressive when compared with the rest of the world. In 18 of the 25 countries surveyed by the British Home Office, violent crime increased during the 1990s. This contrast should provoke thinking people to wonder what happened in those countries where they introduced increasingly restrictive firearm laws.” The media is very good at ignoring these kinds of facts. The Failed Experiment, which gives the details of the study appears to be helpful in showing that the United States should not follow the lead of Britain, Australia, and Canada.
