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.
Much more here in this blog post by Garrett O’Brien from 2015, including the pdf of the Harvard study.
