has it worked? in australia 14 mass killings on both sides of the ban. if it worked you would see a drastic reduction not the same numbers.
this link above is specific to the guns in england but the site has a lot of data from around the states and world. he claims england has a violent crime rate of 2800 per 100,000; whereas the us has a rate of 400 per 100,000 if tallied the same way. the obvious difference is the gun as a deterrent to violent crime. from this graph their violent crime rate rocketed after the ban.
reread your post, you come across as quite angry and as if the facts are settled. australia’s gun ban is used by the left as the cure-all to the gun problem; but, it isn’t.
there is no overly emotional tone it is just the harsh reality that you are as dead being killed by a gun as being burned alive in an arson fire. your post to me prioritized the gun deaths over any other forms of violence with the same result. YMMV!
many can learn a lot from this older gentleman. just a word that his spell check doesn’t work so well.
