Despite high profile tragedies featured on the popular news, homicides have been declining in the US since 1993, according to the DOJ. At the same time, gun ownership in the US has increased so obviously there’s no correlation between the number of guns and the number of homicides. In fact, studies show at least 300,000 Americans use guns for self-defense each year, often without firing a shot. According to a study by the National Academy of Science, there is no evidence that stricter gun laws reduce gun crimes.

The vast majority of murders, gun-related or otherwise, will not be abated in the least by the President’s recent spate of supposed gun “safety” laws.
