    No link between legal firearms, crime

    April 27, 2007
    As the ban guns furor mounts, another study was released which clearly indicates there is no correlation between legal firearms ownership and the increase in crime.

    The Second Amendment Foundation applauded a new report by a pair of criminologists, Prof. Don Kates of the United States and Prof. Gary Mauser of Canada, which contends that the rate of firearms ownership is irrelevant to the homicide and violent crime rate. The report should be required reading, SAF founder Alan Gottlieb emphasized, "... especially by reporters, editorial writers and elected representatives."

    According to Gottlieb, "Appearing in the current issue of the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy (pages 649-694), the Kates/Mauser report entitled 'Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide? A Review of International Evidence' is a detailed look at gun ownership and how it does not relate to the incidence of murder and violence. They conclude that nations with very stringent anti-gun laws generally have substantially higher murder rates than those which allow guns."

    Finally started reading what I DL'ed.
    There is some VERY good info in this.
    It's big, but if you get the chance grab it & read it.

    BTW, the charts that are ref'ed throughout the doc are at the very bottom. No clue why they didn't insert them where they are noted as being??
