Myth 1: More Guns Mean More Crime
In reality, an extensive 2004 report by the National Academy of Science was not able to identify a single gun control regulation that actually reduces violent crime, suicides or accidents, Beck said. The NAS panel reviewed 253 journal articles, 99 books, 43 government publication and some of its own empirical work on firearms.
One of the main pillars of the gun control argument is the claim that more gun laws will make Americans safer. Because the facts do not support such a claim, one would think the scales would be tipped in favor of gun rights.
A University of Pennsylvania study also determined that the 1994 assault weapons ban did little to reduce violence while in effect.
Myth 2: Strict Gun Control Works in Other Countries
Anti-gun advocates like CNN’s Piers Morgan routinely claim strict gun control has been very effective in other countries like Great Britain and Japan, however, the numbers tell a slightly different story.
Beck pointed out that within a decade after England practically banned all firearms in 1997, crime with handguns had doubled, armed street gangs caused British police to start carry guns and the country still experienced a mass shooting. Additionally, the homicide rate rose dramatically for seven years after the ban from 1.1 per 100,000 to 1.8 per 100,000.
Australia also enacted strict restrictions on firearms ownership following a mass shooting in 1996. The change in gun violence was so small that it was “statistically irrelevant”, Beck said.
On the other hand, Switzerland has the third highest gun ownership rate in the world and a murder rate of 0.5 per 100,000. The country’s murder rate is well below Australia, the U.K. and Canada while its gun laws are less strict.
More gun control doesn’t mean less crime.ť
Good news in AZ, Arizona: Governor Brewer Signed Two Pro-Gun Reforms into Law
On Monday, Governor Jan Brewer (R) signed two NRA-supported reforms into law. These new laws, effective ninety days after the General Assembly’s adjournment, will protect the privacy of gun owners and prohibit government-sponsored destruction of seized or surrendered firearms.
House Bill 2326, sponsored by state Representative Eddie Farnsworth (R-12), restricts the ability of any political subdivision from requiring or retaining a record in any form, whether permanent or temporary, of any identifying information of a person who owns, possesses, purchases, sells or transfers a firearm. In other parts of the country, anti-gun media outlets have abused their privileges under the Freedom of Information Act and have jeopardized the safety of law-abiding citizens by publishing the names and addresses of registered gun owners. Contrary to their claims, these media elites have not increased public safety and have instead simply provided a roadmap for criminals to use for their next burglary and firearm theft. HB 2326 will prevent this from happening in Arizona.
House Bill 2455, sponsored by state Representative Brenda Barton (R-6), requires any firearms forfeited to or confiscated by a law enforcement agency to be sold to a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder in exchange for money, new equipment or ammunition. As a result, previously owned firearms that are collected would maintain their value and their sale to the public would help recover public funds when budgets are strained.
