When gun control got stricter, on the state and Federal levels, the murder rate climbed, and stayed up over 9 per 100,000, often going over 10 per 100,000. As gun control was made less strict on the state and Federal levels, starting with the Gun Owners’ Protection Act and the Florida Concealed Carry law, the murder rate has dropped to 5 per 100,000, making it quite obvious that GUN CONTROL KILLS.
So why do the blood thirsty people want to pass laws which have been proven to cost lives?
Pre-gun control in the UK saw rates of .2 per 100,000, and each gun control law was accompanied by an increase in the murder rate.
Why are there people who support laws originally passed to protect the KKK murderers, (forming the very foundation of Jim Crow laws), and which even now cost lives?
New York City has the oldest gun control law on the books, the Sullivan Act, from 1911. The Sullivan Act was passed so that the criminals being run by Tammany Hall political/crime boss Big Tim Sullivan could make crime safer for HIS criminals.
As for a 1911 law causing a decrease in crime, it went up to almost 15 per 100,000, then started dropping almost 80 years after guncontrol was imposed. The New York city murder rate started dropping in 1995, and the stricter amendments to the NYC Sullivan Act were passed in 1998-causing the murder rate to quit dropping for three years.
In 1995, better policing methods were introduced, putting the focus on the criminal instead of the gun.
Tyler, you need to get more current data than 1994.
