There is a lot of state sponsored media claiming that we are made more safe by gun control laws. This assertion is not based on factual proof. I am hoping for some assistance from Metabunk.org in debunking the myth that stricter gun control equates to less violent crime. I will start with this infographic from Zero Hedge: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-08-09/picturing-plunge-gun-crimes-gun-sales-surge The infographic illustrates that a majority of Americans say they think gun crime has increased over the past 20 years, even though it has actually fallen dramatically, even as gun sales have surged to record highs. I know that more guns in the hands of organized criminals make us less safe. But organized criminals do not obey gun control laws. Only law abiding citizens (i.e. the good guys) do. The result is that statistically, more guns in the hands of common citizens equals less crime. I need help debunking the dangerous myth that more guns make us less safe.
