The Wall Street Journal, in the article Guns, Mental Illness and Newtown, reports there were:
  • 18 random mass shootings in the 1980s
  • 54 random mass shootings in the 1990s and
  • 87 random mass shootings in the 2000s
Some of these were at schools where, thanks to Republican President George H. W. Bush, the Federal Gun Free School Zones Act was passed in 1990. In 2012 - just one single year rather than a whole decade - the Washington Post lists 14 cases of mass shootings.

So are the ever more restrictive gun laws producing the desired effect? Or are the stringent gun bans at schools increasing the number of massacres? Such dismal results suggest that America needs to critically explore liberal thinking and the reasons for the political gun-control agenda.

The Effect of Gun Bans in Colorado's Universities

After the state of Colorado passed a concealed carry law in 2003, the University of Colorado prohibited the right to protect yourself with a firearm, while Colorado State University decided to allow concealed carry. So there's a valid as well as recent comparison of the effectiveness of gun bans.

The University of Colorado, under the gun ban they claimed was for safety, experienced a rapid increase in crime, while Colorado State enjoyed a rapid crime decline. Crime at the gun-free University has risen 35 percent since 2004, while over the same time frame crime at concealed carry Colorado State dropped 60 percent.

In 2002 at Colorado State, before concealed carry became legal, there were 47 reported sexual offenses, whereas with concealed carry in 2008, there were just 2. They saw a similar drop in crime in virtually every other category.

Yet fanatic Democratic law-makers pretend a gun ban will make students safer, ignore the proven crime-reducing benefits and are again
seeking to ban guns at Colorado universities! The CSU Student Senate resoundingly endorses the pro-concealed carry policy: "They’re not making things safer, they’re making things worse."

Curiously, liberals seem to believe that yet more stringent gun laws will eliminate the guns possessed by criminals and deranged individuals. But the evidence shows that nothing further could be further from the truth.

According to, during the thirty plus years in which the Washington DC handgun ban and trigger lock law was in effect, the D.C. murder rate averaged 73% higher than at the outset of the law, while the U.S. murder rate averaged 11% lower.

Do Assault Weapon Bans Protect Citizens?

According to, the USA has 4.8 deaths per 100,000 people while Britain and France have just 1.2 and 1.1 deaths per 100,000. So Europe with a four times lower homicide rate is far more peaceful than USA. But is this the result of stringent gun control laws? Does disarming the law-abiding result in less deaths?

The homicide rate in heavily armed Switzerland is even lower! Now just 0.3 per 100,000, well over ten times lower than the USA and more than half the rate experienced by gun-free Britain. Switzerland proves that extremely high levels of gun ownership result in an even safer society. Every household has assault weapons from their army training hanging over the fireplace.

The Right Response? People kill people with knives, ropes, guns, and clubs

Are Sticks, Ropes, Knives, and Guns Responsible?
Gun control fanatics pretend that high numbers of guns result in high levels of violence which, without checking the findings of guns bans, seems plausible. But the empirical evidence shows otherwise. The obvious truth they're missing is that people kill other people using knives, hammers, ropes, automobiles, and guns. Yet the knives, hammers, ropes, and automobiles are not held responsible, and nor should guns be - it's people not guns who kill other people.

Switzerland is the safest country in Europe Open Page in a new Tab, whereas in countries such as Jamaica the gun ban has drastically increased violence Open Page in a new Tab. In the USA, from states such as Washington DC, Open Page in a new Tab and universities in Colorado, the incontrovertible evidence demonstrates the mistake in liberal and democratic thinking. Thousands of times more often, a gun is not used to kill but to protect you instead! Open Page in a new Tab
