"Gun Laws Don't Help" - Harvard Research

SAF Applauds New Kates-Mauser Report on Firearms and Crime

According to the report, published in the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy,
[N]ations with very stringent anti-gun laws generally have substantially higher murder rates than those which allow guns.

This research echoes other research done in the past, such as reported by WorldNetDaily.

And when you look at other countries, this makes sense.

In 2001, the BBC reported that although Switzerland has one firearm for every three citizens, their gun crime rate is so low that statistics aren't even kept!

Meanwhile, of the statistics kept here in the United States on self-defense, research has found that guns are used in self-defense between 1.5 million and 2 million times a year.
