There are no laws that the government can make that would make you more secure from either terrorism or crime. If you give up constitutional liberties, you get nothing in return except less liberty.
Jimmah Cartah spent beaucoup tax dollars on the ultimate study of gun control laws, dumping millions into the coffers of University of Mass and hand picked sociologist anti-gunners James D. Wright and 2 of his asoociates. They did the most comprehensive study of gun control laws ever done, before or since. After four years of living on tax dollars, they published a 3 volume set of results: “Under the Gun.” Despite massive attempts, they were much less predisposed to fudge the numbers like the global warmers. They all ended up with changed minds and the conclusion, as Dr. Wright so succinctly put it, that “Gun Control laws do not reduce crime”
The landmark federal Gun Control Act of 1968, banning most interstate gun sales, had no discernible impact on the criminal acquisition of guns from other states.
Detroit’s law providing mandatory sentences for felonies committed with a gun was found to have no effect on gun-crime patterns.
Washington, D.C.’s 1977 ban on the ownership of handguns (except those already registered in the District) was not linked to any reduction in gun crime in the nation’s capital.
Polls claiming to show that a large majority of the population favored “more gun control” were debunked as being the product of biased questions, and of the fact that most people have no idea how strict gun laws already are.
It is unclear if Dr. Wright ever got another government grant.
