Harvard University Study Reveals Astonishing Link Between Firearms, Crime and Gun Control

Originally published:

According to a study in the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy,
which cites
the Centers for Disease Control,
the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and
the United Nations International Study on Firearms Regulation…

the more guns a nation has,
the less criminal activity.

In other words, more firearms, less crime, concludes the virtually unpublicized research report by attorney Don B. Kates and Dr. Gary Mauser.

But the key is firearms in the hands of private citizens.

U.S. Gun Facts

Over the past 20 years, gun sales have absolutely exploded, but homicides with firearms are down 39 percent during that time and “other crimes with firearms” are down 69 percent.

Almost every mass shooting that has occurred in the United States since 1950 has taken place in a state with strict gun control laws.

With just one exception, every public mass shooting in the USA since at least 1950 has taken place where citizens are banned from carrying guns.

The United States is Number 1 in the world in gun ownership, and yet it is only 28th in the world in gun murders per 100,000 people.

The violent crime rate in the United States actually fell from 757.7 per 100,000 in 1992 to 386.3 per 100,000 in 2011.

During that same time period, the murder rate fell from 9.3 per 100,000 to 4.7 per 100,000.

Overall, guns in the United States are used 80 times more often to prevent crime than they are to take lives.

U.K. Gun Facts

Despite the very strict ban on guns in the UK, the overall rate of violent crime in the UK is about 4 times higher than it is in the United States.

In one recent year, there were 2,034 violent crimes per 100,000 people in the UK — in the United States, there were only 466 violent crimes per 100,000 people during that same year.

Does anyone really want to be more like the UK?

The UK has approximately 125 percent more rape victims per 100,000 people each year than the United States does.

UK has the fourth highest burglary rate in the EU and has the second highest overall crime rate in the EU.

Gun Control Facts

Down in Australia, gun murders increased by about 19% and armed robberies increased by about 69% after a gun ban was instituted.

The city of Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the United States.

So has this reduced crime?

The murder rate in Chicago was about 17% higher in 2012 than it was in 2011, and Chicago is now considered to be “the deadliest global city,”

After the city of Kennesaw, Georgia passed a law requiring every home to have a gun, the crime rate dropped by more than 50% over the course of the next 23 years and there was an 89% decline in burglaries.

Global Gun Facts

According to Gun Owners of America, the governments of the world slaughtered more than 170 million of their own people during the 20th century.

The vast majority of those people had been disarmed by their own governments.

Why?

It wasn’t to stop crime…

Old Glory - An Essay by Evangelo Morris

Reflections from Evangelo Morris

While our government officials and our military swear to uphold and protect our Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, all of us pledge our allegiance to our flag and to our Republic.

This stance means our soldiers protect our Constitution, the framework of our fundamental laws, our freedoms, our civil liberties, our governance, and everything within.

That results in our flag representing all of us - even for those that do things of which we do not like or agree.

That hardly means those that have a love of country as well as love for our flag are not hurt at any desecration, ill-intent, or abuse - that also hardly means that anyone can do as they so please without ethical, moral and/or legal ramifications.

As a result, our flag has become and earned its place as the most recognized symbol of who we really are - a mighty and strong nation as we operate in compassion, in accordance of our Constitution.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty

The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....

... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.

There are only two nations that have placed God within their Constitution and way of life - one was created by God for the people he loves, and the other was created by people who love God.
