There is literally 0 correlation between how many people own firearms, and the homicide rate with firearms, or overall homicide rate as below graphs and correlation coefficients illustrate. This means that any policy that seeks to decrease or increase gun ownership within the population will have absolutely no affect on the murder rate within the same population. But this should be common sense. We should know that violent behavior, or any behavior for that matter is not dictated by inanimate objects. 16 oz cups do not make people fat, pencils do not miss spell words, and guns do not cause violent behavior. Tell me this, if you wanted to decrease shark attacks, would you advocate for banning the sale of ice cream? Well gun bans sound just as ridiculous.
