A recent commentary by Ronald G. Manoni on NewsTime.com points out some good facts. Please read his article for the full details.
- Less that 1% of crimes using guns are obtained at gun shows, while 39.2% are purchased from illegal street dealers.
- There is no connection with the effectiveness of firearms laws and violent gun crimes.
- Guns are used 65 times more often to prevent a crime than commit one.
“While gun ownership has soared, violent crim has dropped… private ownership of guns reduces crime.”
