Gun Control Facts Are Hard To Believe

Gun death statistics

The picture presented by gun control facts may seem incredible. It may be difficult for people to realize that the gun crime scene as shown by gun crime statistics is so grave. There may even be a tendency to dismiss gun control facts as being exaggerated and unreal. But these statistics are collected by people who have high credibility associated with them. Gun death statistics are results of studies made by various agencies, both government and non government. Even the United Nations Organization has involved itself in compiling gun control facts.

Some gun control facts may not give you much information if you look at them in isolation. For example, what can you infer from the fact that every year 30,000 people in our country are killed by guns? Not much. You cannot even judge whether this figure is high or normal. Gut if you look at this data along with a couple of other gun control facts, you will be able to see a clear picture. Take another fact that there are 89 guns for every 100 people in our country. This fact is bound to disturb you since it shows that gun ownership is abnormally high in our country. Looking at these two data along with one other gun death information that if there is a gun in a house,the chances of women and children living in that house falling prey to gun violence are high will make the picture complete.

The obvious conclusion presented by the above gun control facts that more guns will lead to higher incidence of gun deaths does not dawn on some people. The National Rifles Association (NRA) has been in the forefront of the anti gun control movement. Its activities will make you doubt whether the NRA is an association of sportsmen as it claims. It looks more like a highly paid lobby of gun owners, not willing to join the gun control debate since they have nothing to counter the gun control facts.
