You cant compare the numbers but you can compare the significant decrease that happened after Australia got stricter gun control laws in 1997. It has actaully gotten better there.
While at the same time in the US they haven't done anything basically and the firearms related deaths are higher than ever
Mate we have fucking so many gangs and shit doing drugs we have shit tuns of bikes as well who make and transfer drugs to other countries mate were fucked but they at least don't have guns just lots and lots of drugs
banning guns doesnt do anything to stop the CRIMINALS...the people who break the laws..why would they care about the laws because all they do is go against them. This is why the idea of very strict gun control is flawed and arises in the heat of the moment with angry people not being rationale (after mass shootings).
Australia doesn't have very strict gun control? It's quite easy to own a gun here so long as you don't have a mental illness. Also the most useful graph OP provided did in fact show a decline in homicide rates with guns after the implementation of the gun control laws. Obviously you're trying to get attention but others who visit this thread might not be
i never said aussie had strict gun control....where are you getting this? I did not mention your country at all, but was speaking my point on gun control. I am very uninformed on Australian policies when it comes to gun control (or really anything at that matter...why would i be?)
gun control only benefits criminals
they're still getting their guns, since they don't give a fuck about law, and honest and hard working people will be easier targets who can't defend themselves
gun control only raises the crime rate
The gun laws here dont do anything for Crime, Criminals will always exist in all countries, but it does stop kids/normal people from buying ridiculously overpowered rifles for no reason, which in turn stops massacres.
exactly...no use in putting over excessive laws on gun control because criminals break the laws...that what a criminal is..why would these stricter measures stop them if they dont respect authority. But on the other hand making sure people who buy guns are mature enough to handle it and putting restrictions on gun (such as banning full auto rifles) are necessary because...well...there is really no use in buying a full auto rifle.
