There was a study done comparing Seattle to Vancouver, BC. Those two cities are demographically very similar, with the exception of Seattle having little gun control and a large inner city black population as compared to Vancouver. When they stripped out violent crimes from the inner city gangs in Seattle, the violent crime rates between the two cities was almost identical. Asians in Seattle were actually less likely than their demographic group in Vancouver to commit violent crimes, with or without guns. Whites were almost identical as far as violent crimes committed with or without guns, between the two cities. So, is it the guns, or is it the varying numbers and degrees of violence among the criminal elements of a location?

This proposal would have done nothing to prevent the terrible murders in Newtown, but it would limit the constitutional liberties of law-abiding citizens. And gun control doesn’t work – the empirical data overwhelmingly demonstrate that strict gun-control laws consistently produce more crime...
