Gun Control May Make Lawmakers Feel Better, But That’s About It According to This Study

Every time the gun control debate flares up it’s almost always after some tragic incident happens where a deranged individual uses a gun to perpetrate a violent crime against innocent and helpless victims.

No one wants to see loss of life because of a senseless crime, but all too often it’s immediately followed by those who want to infringe on our constitutionally protected right to bear arms by proposing laws to limit access to arms and ammunition.

While lawmakers might feel better about doing something to prevent these kinds of tragedies by creating more laws, as opposed to enforcing laws already on the books, a new study released by Harvard University suggests gun control laws are ineffective in reducing murder rates.

The report, entitled,“Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?” suggests that those who are proponents of restricting access to firearms base their arguments on emotion rather than fact.

Rather ironic that the Second Amendment was written specifically to assure the citizenry could protect itself from a tyrannical government.

This report seems to substantiate the claims by gun rights advocates who say restricting access to guns only stops law-abiding citizens from exercising their rights, not those who are bent on committing acts of violence.
