    Default Australia’s most heinous mass murder occurred after their gun ban in 1997.

    Harvard did a study that demonstrated that firearm access had little or no effect on the murder/suicide rates ("Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide: A Review of International Evidence," Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy, vol. 30, pages 651-694.) After extensive research it concluded that there were no instances of nations with high gun ownership having higher murder rates than nations with low gun ownership. If anything it was the reverse.

    England & Australia enacted some of the toughest gun control measures, and handgun restrictions in the world in the late '90's. Since then they have seen their violent crime rate rise to the highest in the industrialized world and twice that of the US.

    Russia, and the former Soviet Bloc countries, have 4 times the murder rate of the USA, despite over 8 decades of total State control of firearms, and very tough restrictions on gun ownership.

    Then you look at Norway. Highest percentage of gun ownership in Western Europe. Lowest murder rate.

    but the anti's don't take this into account, they act like these respectable studies don't exist, but continue to treat admittedly BOGUS studies as fact. Morons

    This study was conducted at/by Harvard. 0bama claims to have attended Harvard (his transcripts are sealed, so who really knows). Wouldn't it be ironic if he took part in compiling this report?
